Oh, I forgot I wanted to share…

What I witnessed my 10 year old (Justus) do yesterday… Ayla was fussing so he picked her up to walk her around – he LOVES to do this, and I don’t argue it! LOL!
Anyways, he was taking her outside thru the garage, and he fell down the stairs. ACK! I was watching it happen in slow motion, while my heart about lept out of my chest. Well, Justus made the split-second decision to pivot his body around and land flat on his back, against what I’m sure is everything his mind and body told him to do to protect himself, so that Ayla was safe and sound on top of him.
Makes a mama proud! It amazes me that even a 10 year old has such protective instincts towards his little sister, it really shows his love, doncha think?
Okay, gloating over.
