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.

Thanks for the Help

Casualties of Disaster

It all started out as an innocent evening. I was cooking dinner. Went into the fridge to get some chicken out and rearranged some of the contents in the freezer. Ethan was sitting between myself at the stove and fridge playing. I glance over at the freezer door and saw that it was not closed all the way. And then. . . the ONLY glass item in there slid out like a bobsled cruising down its course, exploding on the floor with a terrifying boom.
Glass shards sprayed like shrapnel all over our floor. Poor Ethan was the closest to the mess and was sprayed with glass. Ayden of course had to see what happened and rushed over to the pandemonium, running over the glass shards. After I cleaned the mess I found glass sticking out of our wooden cupboards. Some pieces were flying so fast they embedded themselves into the wood.

Doesn't look bad there, but that's only about 1/2 the length of our kitchen and the glass chunks reached down the entire stretch.
Luckily for us the boys weren't hurt beyond just their feet. I was sure Ethan was coming out with some scratches on his face. He was of course the one that had the worst of it, but that didn't stop Ayden from milking his little cuts as well.

As I'm going to assume, you really can't see any cuts on Ayden's feet or Ethan really either. Ethan at least has the bit of blood dripping down his foot. But both boys had at least 3-4 places where the glass had cut them. Poor guys. And my poor fudge!

Glass is the worse, because no matter how hard you clean up it still seems like the remains happen to still be there. LOVE the apron on Ayden. He was way too excited to get cut by glass :)
