Big Brother Monitoring Station

When you feel an obligation to supervise your younger siblings, the big brother monitoring station becomes a critical place.

Look at those kids playing out there.

Look at those kids playing out there.

Frankie Suave tries to act nonchalant about the behavior of his younger brothers, but the reality is that he feels responsible to keep them out of trouble. And with Typhoon and Landon, that can be a considerable amount of work. By claiming the corner of the deck that transitions out to the yard, he has a perfect position just like a lifeguard at a swimming point. And just like that lifeguard, sometimes he has to blow the whistle.

Hey, you two. Cool it!

Hey, you two! No running in the pool area!
