These two

The two. I love them with my whole heart forever and ever. 

You have to understand something about Ty. He loves vacuums. He has a toy one he is constantly playing with. He pretends other toys are vacuums. He pretends to plug them in and vacuum the floor. However when I plug the real vacuum in to clean he freaks out. I mean he is terrified...cries and runs as far away as possible. He has to get somewhere high and wont get down tell I am done. 

A while ago I got the vacuum out to clean the living room floor. Ember is sitting in her rocking chair and Ty books it to his room, slams the door and waits. A few minutes after starting the vacuum I see his door peek open and his little eyes looking through the crack. He runs out of his room with terror in his eyes, grabs Embers chair and drags her into his room. He slams the door again with them both safe and sound. 

 I know Ty and I know he would do anything to stay away from the vacuum when it is on. I know the fear I saw in his eyes when he ran into the living room to get Ember. I know its silly but to him the vacuum could possibly eat him but he was willing to take that risk for his baby sister. He had her back and protected her. 

I have to admit I laughed out loud when it happened. I thought it was adorable and went and kissed them both on the cheeks and then went back to cleaning. Ill always remember the day when Ty came to Embers rescue. Right now its only from the vacuum but someday it may be from a mean boy, a scary situation or an accident. I  am so thankful to have sweet children who I know will always take care of each other. Even if its just from the vacuum.
