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

Head in the Sand

Cute little story for you guys. Yesterday was yard work day and let Mommy stay inside and clean the bedrooms day. Daddy was outside with the boys raking up the leaves. We were finally able to get into our shed- we kind of lost our keys and had to borrow them from the downstairs tenant- and so that meant we could get our yard work supplies out! At one point in the cleaning experience I heard my husband say, "J come outside and bring the camera!" I ran out of the bedroom, looked for the camera, all the while listening to some children giggling outside. Once I grabbed the camera I hurried outside to see E lying, half buried in a pile of leaves, staying as quiet and still as a 20 month old can be. And then I look up to find the other one a little way off with his head in his leaves and his bum in the air!
Daddy's memory of this moment of me coming outside was a little different. He told me the story a little something like this. He gets both the boys nice and hidden and then calls for me to come out. In the excitement E sticks his head up to see what is going on and A just completely jumps out of his pile. I come outside and start going down the stairs. Daddy shouts, "Hurry guys hide!"

E then flattens himself again onto the leaves and sits still, while A runs one direction to hide, changes his mind and runs the other way and then decides to run back into the leaf pile to hide. But since he can't get his entire body hidden, he just desperately buries his head in the pile!


Oh, and here are pictures of the boys 'hiding' in the leaves. :)
