We had some visitors over and of course A and E were bouncing off the walls. Head butting their legs, jumping on their back and freaking out. So I chucked them both in the kitchen and told them, "You are out of control." Angrily A turns to me, hands on his hips and snaps, "No Mom! YOU are out of control!"

A comes up to me and tells me very officially, "Mom, I'm smarter than you. I'm not smarter than Dad, but I am smarter than you."

A and E were wrestling today and it was A's day. He was doing really good keeping his little brother subdued, although E put up a pretty good fight. Once they were finished, Daddy and I told E he did a really good job! He looked over at Daddy M angrily from the floor and said, "No, I din not!!" he flailed his arms on the ground and continued, "He's still alive!"

E and A were playing T-ball today with A's new gear. I of course laid down the rules. No hitting anyone with the bat. No swinging at the ball until every body and body part is clear. Simple enough. Not 5 minutes into it, I hear a blood curdling scream from A. E runs inside, eyes big, and says, "I din'n know what I was doing!" Big brother had a pretty good goose egg on his head.

"Noooooo- mine toys!"

We brought out some of Ayden's old baby toys a few days ago for Ethan to play with. He's getting to that point where he can somewhat grab stuff and is interested in toys. So, I figured there's not really a better time to get them out and let him have a go with them.
However- I did not expect the reaction I got from Ayden. I brought them down and put them in front of Ethan while Ayden was eating lunch. He instantly stood up and yelled "NOOOOO!" pointed to Ethan and cried, "Mine! My toys!". Mind you- he's not played with these for over a year. They have been sitting in his toy box upstairs singing a lonely song of lonliness.
Ethan was thrilled. Ayden was ticked- at me I assume. And I was thoroughly entertained!

He glowered at Ethan all through his lunch, which just minutes before was taking forever to eat and now seemed to have been wolfed down in less than two minutes. Once he was done he looked over at me and said, "done! all done!" I washed his hands and let him go.... and now not to my surprise, he rushed over to Ethan and snatched every last toy up. Ethan just looked up at him and laughed with excitement because he was getting attention from his big brother. I explained to Ayden that those toys are "lil-lul like brother." He quietly repeats me, "lil-lul." I got him to give the toys back and go draw me a picture.

I'm surprised he even remembered those toys. They really look like young, young baby toys.
