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

I think someone's brain may have died

I don't have a picture of this event. The moment just did not permit it. They boys and I were heading out to go visit some family. I opened both doors and shuffled them into the car and then shut the doors. I ran back inside to collect a few things and come back out. As I was stepping out the front door, I see Ethan's cute little head sticking out of the window that Ayden must have rolled down. At the exact same instant, I see the window start to roll up, WITH Ethan's head still outside. I screamed Ayden's name probably three times!! The neighbors must have thought a child was being murdered somewhere. I ran over to roll the window down off Ethan's neck. And the only thing Ethan does is look at me quizzically, wondering what all the fuss is about. My screeching has scared Ayden badly enough that he stopped rolling the window up at just the right time. No suffocating 1 year old today. Ayden actually began to roll the window back down, helping his brother get his head back in before I even made it to the car. I'm just glad nothing happened. That could have been a lot worse than it was. I'll remember this Ayden. There will be a story some day about you trying to roll your brothers' head up in car window. We'll say you tried to kill him, because I bet the thought WAS there.... juuuuuust a little.
