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.

They Live!

So- if you've read my previous post about Ayden's birthday- then you know that we bought 3 fishies for his birthday. Nemo, Horton and Wall-e... and you should also know that two of these fishies died within the first 24 hours of purchasing them. Sadly though- I was not surprised. So, three days after the two fishies were flushed down the toilet to find their dad! Sorry- terrible pun! We bought two more! And can you guess what they're called? Nemo (we like to think he was the one that survived), Horton and Wall-e.
On other news- we ran out of baby formula on Sunday and because of this, Ethan has been converted instantly into a baby food consumer. He seems to have taken this transformation rather well. So long as I feed him the sweet potatoes and carrots. No peas please. Ayden wanted to help in this transition of course and stared at Ethan while he ate... or in some cases, stole the baby food. Either to his great pleasure because it tasted so yummy or great dismay, because. . . well. . . it had not.
Last note before I run off to clean and make dinner and be Mommy until I go to work. We bought Ayden some chalk for his birthday and then he got some from Grammie and Papa Kunz, so to celebrate our abundant blessings. We went outside and colored all over the sidewalk and then to add to the masterpiece we'd created, Ayden slid his litte bum all over it.
It is now truly a thing of beauty! However once Ayden realized that his new clothes were covered in chalk. How did that happen?! He was pretty upset. And like the good mother that I am. I made him stay in the clothes until I took pictures of his cute little self.
