If I folded the laundry, where would they cuddle?
For the most part, Weston and Koper do a good job of entertaining each other.  They have their moments and there is as much laughter as there are tears.  Weston has learned lots of new things at Pre-K, mostly good, some interesting.  He has learned to play well with others and occasionally, he'll throw out the "I'm not going to be your friend anymore" statement, which just bugs me.
While I was working on a project yesterday, Koper kept trying to get my attention and tell me that Weston was going to Grandma and Grandpa's.  I figured he just wanted to go play at their house and humored him as he got his shoes and jacket on.  I noticed Koper was getting more and more nervous as Weston walked out the front door.  I finally asked him what was going on and he said something about Weston not wanting to be his brother anymore.  Apparently, they had a little tiff and Weston told Koper he was leaving and going to stay at Grandma and Grandpa's.  Koper thought he was losing Weston forever.
When Koper cries, it's mostly because he's frustrated that he has to go to timeout.  Other than that, he can melt your heart and any trouble away, so real tears are not common.  Yesterday, he was crying real tears at the thought of losing his brother.  It was sad/cute/heart wrenching all at the same time.  Because he doesn't cry all that often, Koper is sometimes startled when tears form in his eyes and drip down his cheeks.  He wipes at them like he doesn't know what they are and gets a confused look on his face.  Once again, sad/cute/heart wrenching...
I love all my kids equally, but seriously, where did Koper come from?

You know I DID notice that Koper's picture WAS the biggest out of all three of the hanging pictures on your wall.
Cute story.

It wasn't on purpose, I swear... They were the only three kind of matching frames that I had. But it does make you wonder....
