Thank you Daphelba. I am pretty sure it was between the ages of 4 and 5. My little brother was a toddler or a baby. I had to improvise my memory of his actions based on what he always did but truthfully I can’t remember if it was like I described it or if he was actually in a carseat. I know he was very small and he’s a year and a half younger than me — so I was very young when this happened. His actions and age are fuzzy to me but everything else I remember VERY clearly. This was SO hard to share. But I am trying to push my vulnerability as a writer and this incident is so significant in my life, it could not be overlooked. Thank you for reading and sharing your thoughts.
