There is a fine balance between Riley and Malley’s relationship. As brothers, they are very loving towards each other, but their love always results in bath-time turning into a good-natured battle. It almost resembles the squirmy toddler trying to escape their parent’s grasp when the parent is trying to wipe away some evidence of a snack. Malley will bathe Riley, who sits still for ten minutes or so before he wiggles and squirms away. Then Riley attacks Malley, holding him down while he furiously grooms his brother back. It’s adorable.
But sometimes, because they are others, they argue. Over what? I have no idea, but it occasionally happens, and when it does, they chase each other, swat at each other, play-bite each other, and otherwise roughhouse until it is time to bathe properly again. Or sleep. (Which they often do curled up together, because that’s what brothers do.)
Stay safe out there!
