My oldest son got home from school today, walked into his room, and immediately reemerged, ranting that Clayton had been in his room and had touched his things. Being ever sensitive to his concerns, I said, "Did you see him in your room? No? Why do you always automatically assume that Clay has gone in your room. Clay was with me all day. He didn't go in your room!"
My son, ticked off that I didn't listen to his daily rant, stomped back into his room. About half an hour later, he came out and thrust his video camera at me.
"Yes, he was in my room! And he's so stupid he stole my video camera and then filmed himself walking around with it! You can see his feet and pajamas in the video! Here! Look!"
Lo and behold, it is indeed a video of Clay walking around with Austin's video camera. It's like one of those "dumbest crooks caught on tape" videos.
In case anyone's interested, those new Flip cameras are easy enough for a three year old to use.
Sorry Austin. You were right. Your brother's a punk.
Then this evening, he told Joe, "Can I call someone?" (on the phone)
My husband asked, "Who do you want to call?"
"Sally," came his matter-of-fact reply.
Confused, my husband asked, "Do you know anyone named Sally?" (we don't, for the record)
"No!" came my son's indignant reply.
"I see," said Joe.
Makes perfect sense, doesn't it?
Say an extra prayer for the Averys tonight. Julian is on oxygen and was only taking 9 breaths a minute last night. :( And as Mimi says, "Always kiss your kids goodnight. Even if they're asleep. They know."
I forgot to put this in my original post and had to come back and add it. Does anyone here donate blood? If not, consider it. It's a great little break from the kiddos ;) among all the obvious benefits! Manic Mom is doing a contest on her blog to encourage people to donate blood. Check it out here!
And finally, we're back to posting on Mamaslike. Check out the cute dog beds and Etsy finds here!
