It has taken a couple years, but Hunter has finally collected two helmets and two sets of pads from the local thrift shop. (I think he wanted to be a football player for Halloween just so he could get a set of pads!)

And now he just wants someone to play with.

Bennett is a good sport and his current target, although he doesn’t love football and has a low tolerance for his brother hitting him around. Bennett might be good for a few plays before he’s done with his older brother’s taunting and aggression; he usually knows his limits and is able to walk away before getting too worked up.

Just a little brotherly love.

It was about two minutes after this that someone fell to the ground and the helmet crashed into the wood floors and almost into my entertainment center. I made an executive decision – no helmets in the house!

Life with kids is always an adventure.
