Ok, I've been trying to behave myself and only post once a day like everybody else, but... I just can't. I gotta be me. If I don't get these things down they just disappear. Or I find something I wrote down a week ago and it's just not that funny anymore. This way you can suffer the unfunny stuff RIGHT AWAY! Like a few days ago I had to send Liam up to his room for some infraction I can't even remember now. To show me how angry he was about this he stripped his bed and threw all the sheets and blankets on the floor. Apparently this was not enough so he stripped off all of his clothes as well. Then he wandered over to our bedroom and peed on my brand new Salman Rushdie book. Now I don't mind if he doesn't like Rushdie's writing, but I think he should read the book before making such a strong statement.
Continuing on with Liam's anger management issues, Supreme Leader banished him to his room yesterday afternoon for some reason. His protests stalled on the stairs and he needed some assistance getting to his room. I escorted him the rest of the way and tried to talk him down. I patiently explained why he had been banished and that we still loved him. He responded, "I'm rubbing nasty snot on you!" And he did. And he had a lot.
Later on in the afternoon the boys and I were playing in the living room. Daddy was hiding under a blanket while the boys dove off the love seat on top of me. At one point the screaming got a little too loud and since dinner was quickly approaching I told them we needed to relax now because it was quiet time. Then I threw off the blanket and found my little angels jumping naked from love seat to sofa and back again. I said, "Hey, quiet time is not naked time!" They thought this was funny as hell and started chanting "Quiet time is naked time!" I'm hoping my little talk with Connor holds and he doesn't start singing this at kindergarten today.
And finally, a little something special for some 'special' people.
