Important Question

Weekdays at 7:00 am: Tickling, kissing, nudging, shaking, all whilst calling name loudly - Boy 3 won't wake up, not even budge. Grumpy as hell when he does finally wake up.

Saturday at 7:00 am: I sneeze in the kitchen while happily making my coffee, giddy at the thought of enjoying a HOT coffee while all the kids are asleep - Boy 3 cheerfully bounds into the kitchen, up and ready to conquer the world.

Even Boy 3 Knows...

"Happy" came on the radio and I turned it up for Boy 3 because he loves it.

"Mommy, no. This song is done."


Fox Off

The only thing more annoying than the song "What Does the Fox Say?" is all three of my children singing it repeatedly. It's like a bad case of the yawns - as soon as one kid finishes singing it, another will pick up right where they left off.

Help me.

Boys Will Be Boys Will Be Boys

Girl 13 was standing at the kitchen counter when Boy 7 came out of nowhere and gave her a big huge hug from behind. This sweet, tender moment was instantly shattered when he yelled "TACKLE!"

Rugby boys.

Time Out, Dad!

Overheard from the living room where Boy 3 and Boy 7 are hanging out:

Boy 3: "Ugh, f***ing shit!"

Boy 7, gasping in horror: "Hey!! You can't say that, that is really, really bad!!!"

Boy 3: "WHY?!! Daddy say it, too!"
