Brotherly Pranks

Last night we were all relaxing in our family sunroom.  The Bruins game was on.  Middle and Eldest were watching the game with their father, and Baby had just gotten all snuggled up next to me with Eldest's Nintendo DS.  As he went to turn the DS on, he started giggling.

I asked, "What's so funny?"

He replied, kinda whispering so his older brother wouldn't hear, "I turned the background PINK on Eldest's DS!  Isn't that funny, Mom?!"

I snorted.  What a sneak!  (And kinda impressive for a 5 year old to have the savvyness to do that to his 9 year old brother, don't you think???)

So as I was trying to signal to Hubby what Baby had done (because I thought it was kinda hilarious), Eldest got wise and started paying attention.

So he grabbed his DS out of Baby's hands, took one look at it, and then went running...

Right for Baby's DS.

By the time he came back into the room, Baby's DS was now, indeed, pink as well.

But not only that.

He changed the username on it to "Crybaby".

Which, of course, prompted Baby to immediately start wailing.

Hubby and I were laughing hysterically at these innocent brotherly antics.

Until I stopped dead in my tracks and realized...

I can't even beging to imagine the types of pranks they'll be pulling on each other when they are 13, 14 and 16.  Or 14, 15 and 17.

Holy shit.

I learned yesterday that when something bad happens in the house, my kids are ALWAYS going to stick together. They are going to protect each other and its going to be my job to break them.

I hesitate to try for #3, because then they'll outnumber us... shudder!

I am so glad I have a boy and girl that don't seem to prank each other too much.

I grew up with all brothers. So happy I have a girl. :) Even when they grow up ((sigh)) it never ends.
