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

Can't catch a break

Poor E is like my little walking disaster. He can't seem to stay still enough or pay attention well enough to keep himself out of trouble. A few days ago, he and A were walking and E fell off the sidewalk and ate it right into our car or the pavement or some other object harder than him. I'm not sure what he hit, but it did damage to his face. A couple days later he has an encounter with the pavement. This time he was running away from me and some random child was running right behind him so I couldn't grab him. And then splat. He went down again and this time his nosed kissed the sidewalk and then his forehead.
We thought this looked bad!
So bad that he was loved and loved and loved some more!
Until the loving may have become too much. :)
Ok, actually I don't even think that's possible! E soaked up all up.

Today, E looks about a 1,000 times worse. This picture does NO justice to how awful he really is. Every time I look at him I feel bad. We can't let him out in public!! People will think we abuse him.

On a happier note. Check out A, the new acrobat gymnast in the family!
This isn't an accident waiting to happen.  *sigh*

I was looking through the old pictures to find the picture of you with the black eye.... Oh yeah. Ethan definitley out did you with the scraped up face business. Anyone who has boys will understand the story of face vs pavement=a busy boy. He is still way cute!!
