I don't do this often but every now and again I think what my life would be like if Brennan had been a normal happy boy. He'd have a younger brother, number one. I wanted 4 children back in the day so I figure we'd have a 19yo, a 17yo, Bren would be 13years old and Kieran would be 10. Yes, Kieran was my next boy name.
Bren would be on the Meeker Middle school Baseball, jv, cuz he'd be in 7th grade. Kieran would be in 5th grade and on a Little League team unless he decided to be very different from his bothers and decided to play spring soccer.
Bren and Kieran would be pals but mostly at home because Brennan is, after all, in middle school and not an elementary school baby anymore. Bren would tease Kieran and then one of the older boys would jump him for being mean. At 13 Brennan would only be 5 feet tall so both his older brothers would be much larger.
Brennan and Kieran would be my readers. They would love to read on their own exploring the imaginative world in books. They'd also love computer games but there would be a time limit on that.
Kieran would be struggling with long division as everyone in the house had, and Brennan would try(after I asked him nicely)to help.
Riley would have his driver's license because I'd need the help. There's be practices and games to get to and with 4 kids things get complicated.
I believe Brennan would be more thoughtful than his older brothers.(not hard) He'd also worship them. Kieran would still be his mama's boy snuggly and caring.
If only we got to plan our lives...............................
