Tuesdays With Tux (5.19.15)

For Tux, sleeping with Will at night has gradually turned into protecting Will at night.

I have always peeked in on the kids before heading to bed myself, and since Tux's arrival I have found him and Will cuddled up and snoozing soundly during these nightly checks. Recently, however, I started finding Tux wide away and seemingly keeping watch - for what, we have no idea - over a soundly sleeping Will. For whatever reason, Tux seems suspicious of my need to kiss Will's cheek before turning in, and he lets me know it by watching my every move with his big yellow eyes and even batting me away from Will if he's in a particularly feisty mood.  

These pictures were all taken on different nights throughout the last three weeks. In every single one Tux is shooting me his "this is MY boy. I'm watching you…" look.

Then last week I walked into Will's room - while Will was at school - to gather laundry. I found this little watchdog valiantly defending his boy's room and bed, so I opted to leave and come back later for the sheets rather than move him and create an enemy for life.

It's nice to know these two have each others backs. On the other hand, it sure would be nice to be able to go into Will's room and kiss him goodnight without fear of attack...
