Choke


If you have watched my twitter feed this week, you probably noticed it's been an interesting week with the boys:

bmiller007cole turns to logan and says "you know broccoli is fatal..." lol.

Anything to get out of veggies. If it was lima beans, he would get my vote.

bmiller007driving home from a walk along black water creek after dinner, logan says "cole, can you hand me something to hit you with?" "ok, here."

What began as a request to pass the toy became Gettysburg. Brother against brother, shots fired in anger, as action figures earned their name as ammunition. When Logan ran out, he politely asked his nemesis to share, which Cole did....go figure.

bmiller007another reason to love big brothers..."cole, if you put toothpaste on them, it makes your eyebrows really show up!" "ok, will you help me?"

When in the interrogation room, bright light in his eyes, Logan sheepishly grinned, realizing for the first time we heard about this one. "What! I was just kidding!"

Maybe it's because we are from Mars, but boys are just different when it comes to affection. Anyone else messes with your brother and it's on "like Donkey Kong." Between brothers though, the hugs seem a whole lot like headlocks. Tension fading to a forgotten memory as they head off on another adventure.

Ahh, male energy is so interestingly different from our fembot ways. Toothpaste is also good for zits. Save that for when they are teens.

These were too cute. Sounds like these little guys take after their dad.

The "hand me something to hit you with, ok here" one is genius. I have to start writing my son's externations, because they're becoming hilarious. Unfortunately he doesn't have a brother for more inspiration.

Ciao Brian

PS: Did you know toothpaste erases hickeys? Hold onto that one until puberty hits though.

I feel the same way about cauliflower, even more so when others eat it and I have to smell the after effects.

Brian Miller said...

Brian Miller said...
