A Sharing Heart

Around here, pan dulce, or sweet bread, is a very big deal. The boys LOVE the stuff and would probably subsist entirely on it if they were allowed. It?s often to the point that they fight over it.

This morning, Dorian woke up long before Dante. He carefully left the bedroom door ajar because he knows his brother gets scared if he wakes up alone. Then he came in and checked on us, saw we were sleeping and went to watch a movie. Since the control was out of his reach, he had to wake me up to get it for him and asked if he could have something to eat. So, I gave him one of the two remaining sweet breads.

A while later, I went out again to get something to drink and noticed that Dorian was eating pan frances, the regular bread. When I turned to head back to my office, this is what I saw on Dante?s armchair.

Even though no one was around to tell him to share, Dorian went into the bread bag, discovered that there was only one sweet bread left and he decided to save it for his brother and left it on Dante?s chair for him!

Then he got out regular bread to eat instead . . . even though I know for a fact he doesn?t like it nearly as much. I have to say that I was pretty impressed! So was Dante when he got up and saw he had a treat waiting for him!
