hmmm....blank

I didn't know what to title this:
Sometimes you have to laugh so you don't cry
- or -
A child left to himself disgraces his mother -
- or -
No body wants buddy!
- or -
"Guess what Brian's doing now?"

So today has just been one of those days with Brian. He is just...a boy?... He instantly started in by stirring up strife with the sisters...he loves to hear them scream. He was then assigned to stay by my side, with in sight. Then during chore time his buddy for the day was Gabby. Being buddy to Brian is a rather exhausting job. Gabby was mad several times for him not doing as she told him and then she comes, "Guess what Brian's doing?" He was pinching her bottom when she would bend over to make the bed.

As exhausting as it is for everyone else, Brian was the one to fall asleep during school time.

When we were all tired of keeping a hawks eye on the little man and he wanted one more chance, I was weak and let him go upstairs by himself...with the only task to bring me his dirty laundry. I hear a loud clunking sound... followed by, "Guess what Brian's doing?!" He was sticking pieces of his train track into the window fan. I shut my eyes and count to 3 before summoning him.

He dropped the entire yogurt container that was just opened (I have 4 kids I'm not talking about the little 4 oz servings, this was a family size container) on my floor, I cleaned it up and committed to mop during outside play time.

This afternoon during outside playtime, all was well, they were playing in our new massive sand pit where there used to be a pool, building castles, motes, volcanos. I wanted to mop while they were entertained, however found my mop bucket was full of wet sand.

Then I hear..."Guess what Brian's doing?" He was spray painting daddy's boat. Good news...it was at least with the clear coat spray paint that I use to set the chalk art.

Inside for more closely watched supervision.

Outside for less closely hearing of the sibling rivalry.

Here comes Gabby again..."Guess what Brian just did?" He had peed in his mote to make sure no Barbie's crossed over to his castle. Peeing outside...I'm fine with it. Peeing outside when we live in town with no fence and about 100 people walking through our yard today measuring for the fence and the grand opening and training for the new Boys and Girls Club...I'm NOT fine with!

Lord give me patience or give me Prozac!

Ah, well, at least it's GABBY telling you, and not your neighbors!I've had several neighbors lately bring me reports on what Trevor is doing!!!
OH-- and he let the installation guy in yesterday when I was NAKED!! I had just gotten out of the shower and walked to my room, with my towel. Then Isabelle runs and tells me that there's a guy in the living room!!! What shoud I do? Run out naked and check on the boys? Thankfully, the baby was napping. Anyway, I had to get dressed and then figure out what was going on!
BOYS!!!!

Okay... I never leave you comments but this one I can't pass up. This makes me thankful for my girls, annoying as they can be at times. Don't get me wrong. I am glad God made males, I am just even happier I don't have to raise one! (Kevin aside, of course.) love you- Angel

Holy cow, my eyes are popping out of my head! :) Now you made me super nervous that I might be having a boy, oh my, oh my, oh my...

Oh my good heavens! This makes ME feel better as well because my second boy gets on these tears where he simply must be annoying no matter what. He does all the things you tell him all day long NOT to-back to back like a marathon.

My first boy never has been hornery though. It's only certain ones. The thing is you just never know what kind you'll get and the ones that are so full of beans usually are quite charming as well (which helps later in life). :D Hang in there Suzanne.
