Who needed the protection more?

"Say yes to one more book, one more hug, one more kiss goodnight, tuck them in & snuggle them tight. One day you will tuck them in & they'll be grown. They will smile & tell you they can do it on their own." -Unknown

A few weeks ago The Hubs had to go out of town for a few days. Whenever he does, he reminds the boys that they need to be helpful and loving and most of all to take care of their Mama. 

The first night after putting them to bed and working on my computer a little while, I went back to my room and found a little blonde head in my bed. Normally, he only wants to sleep in HIS bed... doesn't really like sleeping away from home at all. So I let it be... 

The next morning he tells me that he decided I needed someone to protect me in the night so he came down and snuck in bed without me knowing. 

And the next night and those after, he and his bro decided they both needed to be down there but nobody wanted all three of us in the same bed... so they improvised. 

I wonder who REALLY needed to feel the protection those nights though...
