The boys are in the living room playing a video game when I hear:
Younger Bother to Older Brother: “You don’t love me.”
Older Brother: “Come here and I’ll show you a trick to tell you if I love you.”
(I’m in the kitchen letting this play out, but terrified that this is a set up!)
Younger Brother cautiously makes his way over to his Older Brother.
Older Brother: “Ok. Feel my heart. Do you feel that?” (Y.B. nods) “If you can feel it beating, then that means I love you.”
