There’s something beautiful about being an older sibling. In a way, you’re kind of like a parent: You feel responsible for your little brother or sister, and teach him or her everything you know. If he or she needs help in any way, you’re always there to be a great support system.

Parents can be unaware of how close two siblings may be. But one dad got a glimpse of that relationship between his two sons when he overheard them at home one night.

The dad heard a huge roar coming from his toddler son’s room, and whipped out his camera to catch the action happening inside.

In the clip below, he quietly sneaks up behind the door and opens it just enough to see what’s going on. His 2-year-old, Logan, is in bed, and his 14-year-old son Peyton is standing over him, his arms full of stuffed animals.

If you listen closely, you can tell right away that the teen is telling his little brother a bedtime story about friendship! One by one, he picks up the boy’s toys and makes them all “hug” one another.

The boys have no idea that their dad is hiding in plain sight, and at the end of the story, he yells, ” What are you doing?” catching Peyton by surprise.

This is such a sweet bedtime story ritual. There may be a huge age difference between the two boys, but they’ll be close for many years to come!
