Looking out for each other

So fast they blur

One of the blessings of have two children as close in age as our two are- two in January and 4 in April- is how well they can get on together. I wrote last week how sometimes the lad needs a bit of space and quiet from his sister but when we went to the Scandinavian show on Saturday, he showed just how well he can look after her. Fifi can be a stubborn little soul at times. I ask her to hold my hand and I get a “No way!” as she tucks her hands under her armpits but then the lad steps in and gently takes her hand and they march off together. It’s funny really, he can be such an impatient boy at times and has a temper on him but equally he can show such a lot of patience with his little sister and she loves him for it.
