Why Is my Baby Brother No Longer A Baby?

Little Brothers Growing Up

Why Is my Baby Brother No Longer A Baby?

It’s no secret I love my little brother. Thought due to the fact that suddenly he has become if not one inch short of my height at fourteen is pretty mind boggling. Now I am not that tall, I am a proud five foot and a quarter but I ‘ll round it to 5’2’’.

Lately for a lack of better words, he has acquired an attitude.

It has come to my attention that theyre are a couple of things that I can no longer do with him, some of the basics are as follows:

  1. Holding his hand while walking.
    1. Now see this is a gray area… I am allowed to only if none of his friends are around or if we are in a “safe, no one could recognize me zone”
  2. Hugs
    1. Hugs are gross in public and if I try to I get a resounding “what are you doing?” as if its some foreign gesture.
  3. Telling him what to do.
    1. I will get mocked, or get flat out ignored. When I tell you those hormones are raging… I am not kidding.

The changes that I am seeing in my brother are highly interesting.

I remember sitting on the couch with him just relaxing after a long day and suddenly it occurred. He has hairy legs. I gasp and tease him, of turning into a sasquatch overnight. He gives me an annoyed look with a dash of a smirk.

Now don’t get me started on his voice, that childish high pitched voice us non existant now. Its as if he dropped 10 octaves. I can hardly recognize his voice.

I have come to realize that this is all inevitable, his hairy legs will only get hairer, His feet wont be as small as when he was a baby, and yes it will hurt if he bites you due to the fact that he has more than just gums in his mouth.

I can no longer pick him up, now he can pick me up. I can rely on him to annoy me far more, thanks his new found vocabulary that can at times be intruiging... It is a funny thing to grow up, but to see it right before your eyes is definitly an eye opener. It is a as if we thought it would stay in one moment forever and suddenly you blink and you have a "Big Boy" turning into a man.

Yes, that is a picture of my brother from maybe over a year and a half ago, don't be fooled he's got some sort of a stash' going on now.

Au Revoir!

Leaving My Backpack In The Library

Views about society and the stranger sitting right across from me


As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college.

'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Film Review

Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson lead a tigher, more fun sequel to 2018's 'Venom'

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?
