The Amazing Little Brother

This family is like other families. Every day we go to school and when we get home we do homework. Then we do chores and eat after, then our day is done.
But one day an amazing thing happened. We heard that my sister had a baby. We all just burst into tears. I always wanted to have a little brother. I was so excited. I couldn't wait for him to come.
After nine months the baby was ready to come out. I waited in the hallway with a smile on my face and a dozen roses in one hand and blue balloons in the other hand. When the doctor called us in to see the baby I ran inside.
When I laid eyes on him I knew we were going to be best friends forever.
