THE DRIVEWAY — Siblings have this weird dynamic where they often are at each other's throats, but then insanely loyal if anyone else tries to mess with their brother or sister.
But there are some out there who just love their siblings regardless and want nothing more than to see them succeed.
This little guy is undoubtedly the latter.
The video shows a little girl trying to get a basketball in the hoop with her older brother watching. The girl doesn't quite make the basket and the ball comes back and hits her in the face. If this scenario played out in my house, my 5-year-old son would either A) laugh at his 2-year-old sister, B) get mad at her for playing with his basketball hoop or C) kiss her and console her in an attempt to make her feel better. It's true, C has happened on occasion, but A and B are more likely outcomes. This big brother doesn't hesitate to choose option C and then goes even further.
After giving his sister a kiss to help her owie, he then encourages her with a little pep talk and then gives her the ball and lifts her up so she can dunk it. To make this kid even more polite and amazing, he even asks his sister if she'd like help before he picks her up and then gives her another kiss and a "way to go" after she's done.
This video warms my heart and makes me realize I probably need to teach my kids a little bit better.
