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'm feeling a little nostalgic tonight. A little reminiscent. And quite at peace with my life. I found a few more leaf pictures. I just can't get enough of my little boys playing in the leaves. My son, A especially loves the leaves. The piles I have been able to make in my own backyard are massive. They're so big that they remind me of leaf piles I played in as a child.
 I used to live in Nebraska while my Dad went to school and there were two massive trees out front. And for a 5 year old, they seemed especially huge! I remember running around in these piles with a bunch of other kids while a parent would be raking up the leaves as fast as they could go. My Dad and sometimes my mom, would throw me into the pile. What a fantastic feeling it was to get tossed into a pile of leaves, sink down into it, and watch leaves poof up from the sides of you and then float back down on your head!
I just love leaves. And tonight I feel very content. I think I might cuddle up in my bed and read my book while eating something delicious.

By the way, I passed my CPR training. I am now once again officially CPR certified. I'm not sure when I'll actually receive the card. But I'm glad I can do that now!! I think that's one of the most useful things I've learned in my CNA class so far!

Good for you with CPR class. I hope you never have to use it... but... it does feel good to know you could if you needed to. Love the pictures of leaves. And... those tress in front of our place in Nebraska were huge. Huge to everyone. The leaves were awesome to play in that's for sure.
