Mom said the baby was a wonderful Christmas present. Dan thought his train was more fun and the computer games looked more interesting. The baby was wrinkled and icky, smelled odd, and made a funny noise.
“He’s your brother,” said Dad.
“Your best friend,” said Mom.
But Dan said “Yuk.”
Dan’s Dad found a photo of Dan as a new-born baby, looking wrinkled and icky, with his face scrunched up to make a funny noise.
“Look at you,” said Dad. “You turned out okay; I’m sure your brother will too.”
Maybe next Christmas thought Dan, going back to play trains.
