I was kidding around the other day and told the boys that the Easter Bunny lays Easter Eggs. Today on our walk, Jay spotted a rabbit. The boys chased it under a bush. Jay came running back to me proclaiming that he could see its nest with eggs in it.
The boys took the power wheels out for a spin today. They drive ahead of me, sometimes far ahead of me, and I follow them on foot. Today for the first trip around the block, Owen drove and chased his brother. They both seemed to enjoy it and no one was getting hurt so I let them. When we got back to the house, Owen said he had picked up a lot of trash. Sure enough the passenger seat was loaded with trash. I asked him what he was doing with all that trash. He told me, "I want to keep the world clean." I guess, by the looks of my house, he is referring to the "outside" world.
The boys like to bring in the mail when we get home from daycare. They used to fight over the job. If they are out when the mail carrier pulls up, she will divide it into two piles and give each one. Now they will split it up themselves so no fighting, unless there is a package on the doorstep. The last couple of days I had asked Owen to go out for the mail just because it has been arriving late and he was the one available to get it. He must have thought it was now his job. Yesterday when I went out to get the mail myself, I was met by Owen when I got back in the house. "Mommy, why did you get the mail? Am I fired?"
