Me Catched It


Out to dinner and Oliver, the little guy, is eating spaghetti. He droops some on his pant leg and says (proudly)

“Me catched it!”

Me: “You caught it?”

Oliver: “Yep, with my pants!”

Guess it’s a good think I just bought a new bottle of Shout.

Making the bed just like mom


Last weekend my husband was actually home for Mothers Day. It was nice to see him and he got to help out around the house. (Though Im not sure he would consider that a plus; I sure do!)

My oldest was helping him fold clothes and make the bed Sunday when he said ‘Daddy, I want to make my bed like Mommy does.” At hubs confused look, he explained…

“I want YOU to make my bed like you make mommys bed”

That, little man, takes YEARS if training and alarm setting to beat the big man out of bed first. Good luck with that.

It was only 1 pencil, not 100

Last week Sean was on Red at school. In his kindergarten, they have a series of cards they pull for inappropriate behavior. Rainbow is a perfect day, we have some of those. Green means they pulled 1 card, we have more of these. Yellow & Orange are even more warnings and finally – Red. Red is the big bad.

Apparently Archie did something to make Sean mad. So Sean decided to poke him in the back with his pencil. It was a sharp pencil and when you use it in a stabbing like motion, the teacher, and the brother, get upset. When I confronted Sean about what he did, trying to explain why its not a good idea to stab your brother. His response:

“It was only 1 pencil, not like it was 100.” I could HEAR the eye roll.

Only 2 more months and we are in summer break. And, next year, we are going to be able to separate them into different classrooms. I can’t wait!

We’re Twins, its the SAME slobber

I knew kids were gross. I knew they, especially boys, were covered in mud, spiders and snot. But sometimes, what I say to them or better yet, what they say to each other is nothing short of spectacular! Just the other day:

Sean: Mom can I have a drink out of your water bottle (Came out kind of like a grunt and a point


with a please attached)

Archie: Im next (actual words, I was impressed)

Archie: Why is the straw all wet?

Sean: I just finished.

Archie: Ugh! (takes his shirt to wipe off the straw)

Sean: We are twins; it’s the same slobber.

Archie: Nope, your gross.

Yep, its the same slobber AND it’s pretty gross!
