I didn't know what to title this:

Sometimes you have to laugh so you don't cry

A child left to himself disgraces his mother -

No body wants buddy!

"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.

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!

Jun. 3, 2008 at 5:34 PM Hahahahaha... the tags cracked me up.  Ahhh, be thankful you have only one boy.  Has he peed in the heater grates yet?  That was Matt's favorite place to pee as a little lad.  Then he discovered the joy of peeing on Justin, and delighted in the tears that resulted from that.  He peed on Justin's bed when he got mad at him.  He almost caught the garage on fire melting G. I. Joes.  The ones he didn't melt ended up with bloody stumps painted on them.  And he's almost sixteen.  So yeah... it really doesn't get any better.  Until they move out and go to college.  Then they just do a bunch of dumb stuff that you can't see.

OMG! I think only moms with boys can really relate. Sad thing is they DON"T out grow it they just become bigger boys doing bigger things AGHH! There's been many a day I shut my bedroom or bathroom door and cry. Best thing to remember is that it will be payback time when they have kids of their own (I have to hold on to something!)

Oh by the way if you been reading this.........where's Brian???......hmmmmm

So sorry, I know that it makes for a long and tiring day. Josh and Noah were equally ornery. Josh being the one who always was pestering and getting into things. It does get better, because they grow up move out , get married and torment their wives!    LOL My poor daughter in laws!!!!! You really need to begin sowing in prayer for your future daughter in law. He he !! Love you Much!!!!!
