Two Teens And Their Mama: He Just Wanted To Fly A Kite

He Just Wanted To Fly A Kite


My older son C has always loved flying kites, and it's one of his favorite things to do when we go to the beach.  He's gotten pretty good at it, and this year he was entertaining us with his new stunt kite.

Until his little brother showed up.

Apparently, T decided there had been enough kite flying on this day.



C is quite a bit bigger than his younger brother, and he's not easy to take down.


But what T lacks in size, he makes up for in tenacity.


Success!  At least as far as T was concerned.

Poor C.  All he wanted to do was fly a kite.  I'd feel sorry for him, but I'm pretty sure he got T back later.  Ahh....the love between brothers.

  4. Too funny! This is so quintessential brother activity. I have two boys too and it's like that's how they bond - physically harrassing each other, tumbling and wrestling. Must be a testosterone thing. What cute boys you have!

  5. They will probably laugh and talk about this when they are grown. Sweet memories. The best time of life.

  9. Awww that makes me so wish Tucker's (half) brother was younger than he is and it very very much makes me want to run with a kite. I thank you for that!!

  10. Someone needs his brother so they can play together. Kite flying can be a solitary activity and I'm sure your younger son eventually got tired of "watching" and wants his brother back. That's such a sweet move even if tackling was involved.

    1. It seems like tackling is always involved with the two of them!

  11. This is how my boys communicate too! I always feel like I'm watching bear cubs. I love it!
