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

Cups, water and a little boy.

I just need to mention that 2 1/2 year olds just don't get it. You're probably thinking "well duh", because I know I'm thinking it. BUT I had to say it!

Let me explain why I would make such an obvious statement.

My 2 1/2 year old, for reasons beyond my knowledge and logic, has decided to pour out his drinks all over the house. This morning we found a puddle of root beer on the kitchen floor that he purposely spilled. A little later in the day, McKay caught him pouring some water on the living room floor. AND again today, he poured his full water cup onto our kitchen table.

Why he would do this? I have no idea. Maybe it looks cool to some degree, I'm not really sure. I think what I really don't understand is why- out of the blue- he would start dumping his drinks around the house when he's been using regular cups for almost a year now.

My solution to this problem/annoyance. take away the big boy cups. If that's not devastating enough to him- like I'm sure it won't be. Then he'll have to get timeout or something to that effect each time he decides to annoy me by spilling water at random places throughout my house.
