How Do YOU Know?

Here’s something I wonder. How does Hiram know he doesn’t want his little brother? I mean. It seems like having the foresight to anticipate the potential pitfalls associated with a sibling is actually a demonstration of some very advanced critical thinking ability. (Oh, but of course!)
Maybe they talk at daycare? This seems like a little bit of a long shot considering when I talk to Hiram’s friends at school, we spend our time sorting out how we’re related (Hiram’s mama! Not my mama!) Or we talk about whose truck is whose.
Are these the same kids who are pulling Hiram aside during large motor activity and saying things like “Dude, whatever you do, do NOT get a baby brother. You will hate it.”
I almost hope so. Because otherwise it’s me. Or us. Somehow giving Hiram the idea that e-Lou is trouble. It couldn’t be, could it? Have I made this mistake? Have I given him this impression?
