Jabez (9 months) spent 5 days at NUH for wheezing. When he was finally home last Sunday, Jireh (2 years old) was so delighted. Later in the night, I was with Jireh getting him to sleep. Jabez cried. I explained to Jireh that I had to leave him to look after ‘didi’. He nodded his head. By then Joyce was already carrying Jabez.
I quickly returned to Jireh. He just stared at me sadly, pointing outside the room and said “didi”. He was concerned with his brother and wanted me to go back to Jabez.
Such love and sacrifice from a two year old.
