He will never grow up

So I am 31 and I have a brother who is 34. We don't overly get along and if it wasn't for the fact that my mother lives with him and his family I would probably opt not to even bother with any form of communication. The thing is he still acts like a child and only thinks about himself. Yesterday I was being nosy and wondering if they were able to get the car that they were looking at. His wife has had the picture of it as her profile picture on facebook for a couple of days so I asked him. I got very immature answers without getting an answer about whether or not they got the car, so I later had to ask his wife. Then late last night I noticed his status on facebook said he had one of his sons up at the emergency room at the hospital. So I commented asking if he was okay. His response was "yeah we just like hanging out here" I'm done with him, I'm tired of dealing with someone who still acts like he is a child. I only wish my mother would hurry up and find her own place again so I wouldn't have to even phone there. Though there is not much point of her getting her own place when they make her babysit their three boys every night.

I am an elder brother and i have a sister. I always thinks of all others in my family rather than me. I don't like to be elder, because it has too much responsibility. But I am already elder. My sister has full freedom to talk with me in any matter, And I respects her decision whenever those are good. Have you ever tried to talk to him regarding this ? Is it possible for you to keep your mom with you ? If possible take her in.

My mother wants to get her own place again, she was only living with my brother to save money but that didn't happen since everything seems to be in her name. She gets upset with me anytime I bring up issues with my brother. I only wish I had a brother that I could talk to. Mine is immature, only thinks of himself, and anytime I've tried to talk to him in the past seriously he resorts to name calling and other immature acts. It's even so bad that once my oldest nephew made the comment about something my brother apparently said about me behind my back but apparently in front of his then 4 or 5 year old son. I have no use for this man any more. I even gone so far as to suggest to my sister in law that we only buy for the kids for Christmas because my brother only thinks of himself and always asks me what I'm buying him and tries to convince me I should buy him expensive things like games for his xbox. I don't think so buddy haha.

What is it about older brothers. I really do think his brain stopped developing he really acts the same as when we were kids. I'll phone to talk to my mother and every single time he'll say she's not there and she could be sitting right next to him. Like okay it wasn't funny the first time. It's not funny after 5 years either.
