My mother in law reads our blog, so it'll be interesting to see if she agrees of disagrees. I know in times past she has accused my side of the family for the wackiness of my children but this one is clearly from his father's side of the tree.
Every night we have what we refer to as "room time" and what that means is we give ourselves time in our room without any other people, meaning the kids. We live in an RV so it's not like we can't hear their every movement, but it is nice to carve out time just for us.
Austin has problems with this at times. Tonight, after him coming up for things that did not involve fire, blood or vomit (that's the three things we ask they do come get us for) I ever so lovingly said, "Don't come in our room again. I mean it. I don't want to see your face until morning!"
He goes down to the living room. Only to come up two seconds later telling me something about Tom Petty and Craigslist. (I don't know-I didn't ask) When I look up from my laptop I see he has honored my request. He's standing in the bathroom like this:
Really. It is from the other side of the family. It has to be.
I think he is trying to give Valerie from Tacoma,WA some competition because I just told him she was really, really funny. So now he has to be really, really, really funny.
This is why we rarely watch TV. We have no need for it when we have this live 24/7.
