The boys and I are in Arkansas again for a week. I haven't had to accost anyone's pen!s with tweezers yet this trip so already we're a little ahead of the game, that's a plus.
The cousins are in a constant state of hyperactivity. Since their dramatic reunion in which I kid you not, they ran across the room into each-other's arms like a scene from The Notebook, a schizophrenic school age version of UFC has been raging - there's kicking, slapping, spitting, hitting, punching, pinching and biting and then 14 seconds later they're playing tag. It makes for good, free entertainment. Mostly. I, myself, took a couple kicks to the head, a Viking helmet horn to the ass, and got whipped in the face with a pair of jeans during a tussle with Aidan, Jayden, and Julyan but in the end I handed them their asses. 15 minutes later I guess Julyan wasn't willing to let it go just yet so he came up behind me while I sat on the steps of the deck and shoved me. I pantsed him in a flash and went back to my business. 2 seconds later I hear Kid Sister say Whoa! No, no, no, give me that! And I turn around to see her taking a 700 page hard cover book from his raised hands. Little shit was gonna whack me with it! Maybe I didn't spawn the most diabolical children on the planet after-all.
Diabolical or not, Jayden and Julyan, are crackin' me up, ya'll! Just a few quotes from them...
Julyan after becoming sick to death of Asher copying everything anyone says in what I can only assume is an attempt to drive us all to the brink of insanity - "Aunt Amanda, Asher's coffing me! HE WON'T QUIT COFFING MEEEEEEEEE!"
Jayden in the midst of a Super Hero Battle between all the boys clad in old Halloween costumes - "Don't move or muscle! Compare to DIE!"
Jayden when trying to explain when some specific thing happened - "You know, earlier in the light time, when Aunt Amanda was in a mood?" Pffft, like that narrows the time frame down any *eyeroll*
