Benj was having a bit of a meltdown earlier due to being overtired, he launched into a tirade where he wept about what a bad person he is, and how irredeemable he is, because he had an argument with his brother who subsequently pronounced him the "worst brother in the world". Whereupon everyone, including the offending brother, clusters around to prop him up with a group hugs, and assurances that he is indeed, the best brother, son, grandson, nephew, friend, boyscout, Valiant A, 4th grader and citizen in the world.
When everyone went to bed, Finny was heard to say very sweetly and sincerely in his prayers, "...and please bless Benj that he won't be a loser".
The funniest part was that Benjamin had not used the term "loser" during his lament.
Benj, from his top bunk, waited for "Amen" to be said, before commenting dryly, "Thank you, Finny".
sibling sweetness-Finny was having his own overtired meltdown the night before last, Gracie bundled him up on the couch, and Gabe read to him until life seemed more worth living. Siblings rock.
