My son is 19 and my step-son is 7. A big age gap but surprisingly they have a lot in common.
No, not football (step-son hates watching and is too young to play). Not soccer. Older son doesn’t like it. Nope, not swimming, basketball, running or doing anything athletic.
What they have in common is video games. They can play for hours. Or mostly the 20 year old teaches the tricks to the 7 year old.
I wish kids had more to do at home. Or maybe less. If there were no video games maybe they’d have to go outside for walks. Even at night.
Or maybe they would have to find some other ways to entertain themselves. Like master an instrument.
But at least they play together and have fun. They even fight and argue like real siblings. It’s kinda cute actually. And then it gets obnoxious fast.
Of course, sometimes their fighting leads to big time wrestling and then it does get physical. The little one gets to test his strength and the big one gets to practice his throws and punches. He even gets to build up his strength by doing body presses with the 7 year old.
It could be worse.
