Today's NaBloPoMo prompt is "What makes your heart leap?" I feel as though I need to change my "What Makes You Jump For Joy" post from a couple of days ago because these are actually two different reactions/emotions, but, I won't. I'll just share with you something I posted to Facebook yesterday. My boys were both enjoying their own bowl of grapes and the instant Captain Fussybuckets ate the last grape out of his bowl, Baby D picked it up, climbed up on the chair to the sink where the bowl of grapes were sitting, put a few in the Captain's bowl, and carried them back over to him. Baby D is only 17 months old, but he already has so much love and consideration for his brother, it's unreal! My heart definitely leapt in that moment! Who knew that a toddler could even notice that his brother was out of grapes? His bowl was still full of grapes, but he wanted to get his brother some more. I really hope there are many more moments like that one, even on into the teenage years and adulthood. The boyshave such a special bond and I hope they always continue to take care of one another!
