Brotherly love

My sons Jak age 9 and Joseph age 4 are always arguing, they argue over everything but they would do anything for each other especially Jak. Being the eldest he is very caring and very grown up for his age, he looks after Joseph and let’s him get away with alot of things.
Today they went swimming and after we went for a Chinese buffet. After jak’
s third plate he asked if he could have some afters which was ice-cream, so off he went helping himself to a huge bowl full of whippy ice-cream. Joseph was still eating his noodles and wasn’t paying much attention to where Jak went until Jak sat back down at the table.
Joseph then looked really sad and offered Jak a noodle, to which Jak wasn’t paying much attention to, so Joseph then said to me
‘I share my food with someone I love’ he repeated this twice and I said to him ‘aaw you good boy’
so I told Jak to take the noodle because Joseph was saying he loved him, once Jak took the noodle Joseph then said to him
‘don’t you love me Jak, are you going to share your food with me now’
Joseph was staring at jak’s ice-cream with very hungry eyes lol
There was me thinking I was witnessing some brotherly love and all along Joseph had an ulterior motive thinking of ice-cream.

He’s not silly my Joseph, lol.
