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!"

The Teenage Years: Here We Go

Girl 12 turned into Girl 13 today. She had asked me to make her favourite meal for her bday dinner: steak, mashed potatoes and green beans. Banana Cream Pie (store-bought, because, after all - this is me we're talking about) instead of cake. Then 10 minutes ago, she hit me with this gem:

"Mom, can you make Shepherd's Pie instead of steak? I don't feel like chewing that much."

I guess she's embracing the whole teenagers are lazy rule from Day 1.
