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

How to Catch a Leprechaun

This year for St. Patrick's Day, we set a trap in the hopes of catching a Leprechaun!
We put some gold on a green plate to lure him into our trap! But he was too sneaky for us and escaped!
He left a trail through our house. It looks like one of his pockets has a hole in it. He's dropped gold all over our floor!
Jumped all over our couches and forgot to take his balloons with him!
He even turned our drinks green.
And left us a nice treat to find.
A couple of treats actually. We really like leprechauns around here. They can be so much fun! I know you wish one came to your house! You must not have set the right trap. They like chocolate gold. That is the key.
