Little Brother, Big Brother

So I mentioned that my baybeeee brother graduated from college on May 13th.... but wow a lot has happened since then.

The day after graduation, he met with a friend of a friend of a friend's dad who works at a large engineering firm. They chatted generally and it was fine, but nothing exciting happened beyond that.

Until last week when the HR department called and offered my brother a Big Boy Job in New York (state, not city).

Earning double the salary of his big sister (ok, just $2000 short of doubling his big sister's income).

Living far far from home in an apartment all by himself.

So grown up. Sob.

Hey look! A statue of Neil freaking Armstrong! Pose with me, pretty pretty please!

It's a good thing he's more than 6 inches taller than me. Nobody will notice if I start calling him my big brother, right?

And, it's a perk if he moves away and leaves his bedroom empty so it can resume it's job of being the most important room in the house: my closet.

Time to go shopping for housewares! (Who's excited? Not my brother, that's for sure.)

awww! How exciting!

My little bro is an engineer, and wow, what a job. Stressful, BUT he made at least triple my salary, and just accepted a transfer to Long Beach...where's the justice?!

Yay for little brothers! Where would they be without their sisters?!

such great news! my brother got out of the Marines and finally got a big boy job. But he is still definitely a little brother. All that freedom is making him crazy!
