Lest any of you are suffering from the delusion that my children are always well behaved (and, let's not kid ourselves, there shouldn't be many of you!), I thought I'd share a bit of reality from this afternoon. I was on the phone downstairs and came up afterward to this sight in the kitchen:
Both boys were seated on the counter, guilty looks on their little faces, while a bunch of our plastic cups and all of the straws were emptied on the kitchen floor. At least Gordon humored me with an "uh oh."
Before I could get them off the counter, they started fighting over the little plastic golf club. They were pretty mad-- both at each other and because I was mean enough to laugh and take pictures!
