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

Needed a Little Breather!

The boys and I decided after much studying and stressing that we would go on a walk!
It was such a nice day out that we just couldn't waste all day inside studying and sitting on my legs! So.... we ventured around the corner and played with the neighbor's flower bush.
Obviously not the flower bush. In case you were wondering. This is a tree on the way to the flower bush.
The insanely massive lilac BUSH!! Soooo pretty. The boys found a 'fort' under there and had a ball playing with this plant. A is so manly. He'd run up to me and exclaim, "Its sooo preeeety Mommy! It smells dood!" and then run back to play, only to come back to me and tell me the same thing over again after he'd forgotten that he'd already told me.

I watched them play and stole some of the flowers to make a little bouquet. Turns out lilacs die really fast!  All in all it was a good walk around the corner. We learned some things: lilac bushes make for really great forts, they are really good smelling forts (an important feature when you're a smelly little boy), and their flowers die really fast so don't bother picking them.

That is exactly how I pictured you studying... someone sitting on your legs. The only thing missing is Ayden sitting next to you with paper and pencil in hand. Studying by yourself at the table may be next to impossible. Luckily.... you can study on the floor with kids climbing on you. I loved the lilac tree. I would love one of those in my yard!!
Glad you could go out and enjoy the sunshine... and trees... and boys.
