Boys Will Be Boys


Suddenly, I am feeling like I have neglected to mention any happenings with Christian, my oldest (thank you Gary for pointing this out- what kind of mother am I?). The boy is currently into teasing in a big way. This unfortunately includes Mom and Dad. The other night it was my turn.

Christian and some friends decided to build ultra crazy weaponry out of cardboard and foam pool noodles, PVC pipe, and duct tape . They worked on these for hours and I complimented them on how wonderful their craftsmanship was! How hard they worked! How glad I was that they had pulled themselves away from the Playstation! Then they disappeared.

The evening wore on and the door bell rang, no one was there. I figured it was them. It rang again, and yet again, no one was there. So this time I stayed right by the door and when it rang a 3rd time I opened it really fast and heard running around the side of the house. So I went to catch them. They had me surrounded in a split second and had me pinned down with their works of art. How proud I was as a Mom to have my son outwit me. Not sure if I embarrassed Christian when I said that it only scared me enough to pee my pants just a little bit. I'll bet he was quite proud of me at that moment too.

AH - there's nothing like a little pee in your pants to appreciate your children!!! Thanks, great story.
