Yesterday we all went to the splash pad.

Jacoba and Zekijah were playing with some of the water spouts when a boy who was larger than Jacoba came up to them and took one of the spouts away from Zekijah.

I sat back and watched to see what would happen.

Jacoba went up to the boy who did this and said, ‘hey, she was playing with that’.

The boy didn’t move.  Nor did he care.

I guess Jacoba decided that she wasn’t going to physically take the spout back from this boy, nor be able to reason with him so she flashed the bit of currency that she had.

With fire in her eyes she looked right into the boys face, pointed to Zekijah and said,

“WELL THIS IS MY SISTER!  WE ARE SISTERS AND YOU AREN’T HER BROTHER!”

It was as if to say, you may have won the battle of wills but you lost in the ‘what is more important’ game.

Good job Jacoba, my junior protector.
