“Sometimes being a brother is even better than being a superhero” ~ Marc Brown
I’ve written about it before. Her bond with each of her brothers is unique, strong and unwavering. Just like their love for her. Liam is her protector. Her comfort. Her safe place to land. You can see it in her eyes. She knows he is watching her. She knows he would do anything and drop anything to be there with her and keep her safe. Her happiness and her love for him are like food for his soul. She is the baby sister he always wanted. He was born to be the biggest brother.
Ethan is her freedom. He takes her on amazing, magical adventures. With him by her side she is capable of anything. She can slay dragons, ride a magic carpet down a rainbow, climb the highest building in the world, swing through a jungle with monkeys, swim through a pool full of jelly and race fan-dangled speed machines. And she knows, without a doubt, if she should fall, if her jet-pack should fail, he will be there to catch her. Together they are laughter and cheekiness. One look from him and she can’t help but giggle. She knows there is fun to be had, mischief and trouble to create, and she knows her big brother will always be at her side, letting her discover and create, and feeding her sense of adventure, but he holds the reigns, and he will always, always pull back just that little bit to keep her safe.
And they, all three, are my heart and soul, and I never want to forget for a single minute how much love, joy and laughter they have bought into our lives.
