Another Use for Toothpicks

Tonight for fun the boys decided cut toothpicks with butter knives.

Good Cop Bad Cop

What happens when a grandma buys two four year olds a policeman's play set complete with guns, whistles, badges and handcuffs? Their mother finds them in the middle of the street trying to direct traffic.

Wake Up and Smell the Sunscreen

I woke up Sunday to the smell of sunscreen. I asked the boys what they were doing. Owen told me they were playing tag and the bottle of sunscreen was empty.

Bun Bun By Any Other Name

After finding out from the vet that our pet rabbit is a boy not a girl like we thought, Owen stated "We have to change Bun Bun's name." To which I replied, "Owen, Bun Bun can be either a girls or boys name." Jay joined in, "Yeah Owen, Bun Bun is a boys name, Bunny is a girls name." So we will keep the name Bun Bun.

Keep Flushing

What is worse than two four year olds sticking a whole roll of toilet paper in the toilet and flushing it? Two four year olds flushing it the second time, the third get the picture.

The Writing's On the Wall...

...and the counter, and the floor, and my car's door panel. Owen has become quite an artist, graffiti artist that is.

Good Morning

When I got up this morning, I walked into the kitchen to find a steak knife in the middle of the floor, Jay skating across the floor on can cozies and Owen chasing the 13 year old dog shouting, "We're playing a shooting game." They had let the dog out of his crate but not outside so he had wet the floor. I made them swear to stay in their room so I could take a shower before church, a very quick shower. During that time, they tried to catch the beta fish in their bowls. At least this time they didn't put them in the same bowl like the last time. They also tattooed themselves up so they would look nice for church. On the way to church, I actually had to pull the car over because they were throwing trash out the window. I had managed to close Owen's window but not Jay's completely when I locked it. Jay holds the button so that I can't put the window up. This was all before 11:00 am and very typical behavior for them lately.
