My name is Allen Arseneau.  

This blog captures my adventures of becoming a Big Brother to a wonderful 7-yr old boy named Hunter.  My  own adventure began almost 28 years ago, when I became a Little Brother myself.

Boston BIG - A blog about being a Big Brother

This is a blog about my experiences become a Big Brother to a wonderful 7-yr old boy named Hunter.

My name is Allen, and I am a Boston BIG.  I live in the Boston area, and am a BIG Brother (Big Brother Big Sister of Massachusetts Bay Organization) to a 7-year old boy named Hunter.  Hunter lives with his  grandma and 4 siblings, and is in kind of a tough situation.  So, I am a positive adult role-model in his life.  I take him out about 3 times per month.  We have a blast.

People are often surprised by how much fun Hunter and I have on our many outings, so I decided to write this blog to capture some of our adventures, and to keep somewhat of a diary for Hunter.  

I personally know how beneficial having a BIG is.  I actually got my own BIG about 28 years ago, when my mother realized that her sons needed help.  My BIG, Paul, became my mentor and guiding light as I grew from a Boston troubled teen into a Stanford alum and business owner.  I talk to Paul almost every week nowadays.  Eventhough I have a wonderful 8 year-old daughter of my own, and run a start-up, I find a few hours each week to take Hunter out.  In fact, it is just as much a break for me as it is for him.

I hope you enjoy reading about some of our adventures.

What goes with a movie? Wedding cake, of course!

Hunter’s birthday is in 2 days – he will be 8!  We decided to go to the movies this morning, to see Hotel Transylvania 2.  The movie was good. 

Hunter kind of over did it with the butter though.  I mistakenly let him pour his own butter on the popcorn, and he basically saturated a section of his popcorn with nasty warm “butter”.  But, he seemed to love it! 

The theater has those stadium seats, so we got to recline and watch the movie – from the first aisle (apparently, getting to the movie 5 minutes before it starts was not a good idea). 

After the movie, we went over to Konditor Meister (a really awesome and famous wedding cake maker in Braintree).  I am getting married in 2 weeks, so I wanted to take Hunter over there to show him some wedding cake stuff.  He is going to be in my wedding after all.  :)

Checking out the wedding cakes!
