Big Bro

We had our Lifegroup tonight for the first time this semester. This was Tripp's first time to be dropped off with the other kids for childcare, so we talked to Braden and Landry about helping take care of him. I told them, "I know you'll want to play with your friends, but make sure you check on Tripp and help him feel better if he gets upset." They assured me they would take care of him. (Please know that there were two babysitters there!)

When we picked them up, Braden was kicked back on the couch with Tripp asleep on his chest! WOW! I was so proud of him in that moment! He knew we were proud of him, and he was proud of himself too! The big kids said Tripp "cried alot" during the 2 hours we were gone. Poor baby, his momma never left him with strangers! He's fine now, glad to be home and asleep in his own crib! I would like to tuck that memory of seeing the two of them on that couch for many, many years! Good job, B!
