"You can't hurt him. He is little. He is only 2."


This morning we were at a park that had a big "pirate ship" play structure.  There were two other boys playing pirate on it while we were there.  Slowly, Henry ventured over and climbed up top.  From across the park one of the other boys came running, "Hey, that is our ship."  Charley quickly came from out of no where and got kind of close to the other little boy who was slowly circling the "pirate ship" and quickly and firmly explained, "Hey, that is my little brother and YOU CAN NOT fight him.  He is little.  You can't hurt him.  He doesn't know.  He is only 2."  I was standing right there and the other boys mom was right there and grandma was right there.  And all of us had mouths hanging open from Charley's defense.  What a big brother!  I am glad they have each other.

Awwww, how sweet! My boys do the same thing. They scream, punch and beat the snot out of each other, but if a stranger tries to hurt one they all stick up for the other. Brotherly love!!!

Darling!

Love how he is sticking up for his brother.

My boys certainly fight each other, but no one else is allowed to mess with them!

Oh...SOOOO Sweet and the picture is ADORABLE! I love that my two boys have each other (although, they are not as sweet as yours). They play so well together and really like each other. In fact, sometimes I hear them saying "Hey Friend..." and they are talking to each other.

That's so sweet. I'm a big sister and I was always sticking up for my little sis when she needed it...she repayed me by borrowing my clothes, but such is life. What a great big brother!
