The Sisterhood of the Blankets

I left Kyra and Kylie in our family room alone for a few moments today and when I returned I caught a glimpse into their secret world of sisterhood. Kyra had put a blanket over their heads and secluded them from the rest of the world. Kyra was chattering to Kylie and Kylie was responding with her own delightful noises and giggles as if she knew this was some sort of early form of sisterly bonding. I grabbed my camera and began shooting pictures as fast as the technology would allow for fear this priceless moment would end before I had properly documented it. Kyra actually invited me into their little world under the blanket and I felt giddy on the inside like I was 6 years old and asked to join a secret "no boys allowed" club.

And Chase helped play into my inner childlike notions. Feeling excluded he began grabbing at the corners of the blanket and tried to pull it off of us with relentless force. We fought him off for a while but then Kyra took matters into her own hands and decided to retaliate. If he wanted a blanket, she was going to give him a blanket. She pulled several different blankets out of our storage ottoman and began to wrap him up as tight as she could. Even Kylie seemed to understand what was going on and I sat mesmerized as she too helped pull blankets over Chase, although somewhere along the lines getting a little buried herself by her big sister.

Here is the story in pictures:
