Reason Number 6

Once upon a time in land far far away... ok, my house.... a woman started a blog. She decided that one of her favorite topics of blogging was her children, and more often than not, it was stories where the overwhelming theme is that she shouldn't be allowed to have children. This entry... is one of those. So, I am calling it my 6th reason why I shouldn't have children.

The other day I was on the phone talking to a friend. Will and Jack were totally off schedule and even though it was 9:30pm, they were ready and raring to go. Hyper doesn't begin to describe it. So, I was attempting my conversation with an adult other than Mark, and Will was nuts with a capital C-A-S-H-E-W. I talk away tuning him out but over time his antics were beyond my ability to ignore. I mutter under my breath "he is such a little turd." Will then bolts in from the playroom and says in his proudest voice "no, mama. Me big turd!"

You're right, Buddy. You are a big turd. Or, maybe that was the water in the wine glass talking.

So funny. They always hear what we DON'T want them to hear. What a cutie.
BTW: What vintage is that water?

That was too funny! Kev & I are both laughing on that one! Was this a pic from Saturday and was he cutting you off? ;-)

Gotta love the super sonic hearing that they have, right up until you ask them to do something. Then the whole turd thing kicks in.

I will never tell you the things my kid has overheard. I'm much, much better now.

Suz - I am pretty sure its from the Brita Valley and aged roughly three or four hours. Really, very fancy.

Ardnas - I spell your name backwards better than you do. Sadly, Will drinks way more water than I do. If only he would do so responsibly.

Karen - You know, my husband as the same hearing as the kids. When I am muttering about him on the phone, he hears every word. But when I stand in front of him and beg him to do something... he's deaf.

Bern - Duh, I am not going to admit the really bad stuff. My mom reads this!
