I Inherited a Child! Sort of. 

brother bearI did something pretty crazy. My little brother just graduated high school, and I decided to let him come and live with me while he looks for a job and saves up enough money to move into a place with some roommates. 

My apartment is a one bedroom. I do have a small dining room off of the kitchen, with no privacy whatsoever. That’s his new bedroom. It’s been quite the challenge getting used to living with someone again- especially a teenage boy! But it is so cool to get to hang out with my baby brother bear all the time. 

Does anyone have any tips for living with a teenager? I know nothing. I’m trying to teach him about budgeting and how to be a good roommate. He still doesn’t have a job, but we are working on that. He is a little too enthralled with my Netflix. 

In other news, here are some sweet pictures from my trip to the zoo yesterday! I love the black bears, they are so precious.
