You know you are a mother of boys when. . .

I was packing in my room while the boys were playing in the front room(of the old house) when I hear

"Hold still Dan I have to hit you harder" I ran out to the front room to find Daniel wearing his bike helmet and Steven holding my three pound weight in his hand about to hit Dan in the head. I yelled for them to stop and when I asked "What the heck they were doing?"

I was promptly told that they were testing Dan's bike helmet to make sure if he fell his head would be ok.

Just another day in the butler house:)

Brother Talk

Today in the car I was eavesdropping on my boys conversation, like every good mother should do. Steven was talking to Daniel and told him that he was going to tell him a funny story. Dan listened very well or just sat there because he didn't understand what Steven was saying. Steven said "Hey Dan remember that guy Taylor who married Bonnie, you know the one that was at the wedding, When he got into his car to leave with Bonnie his friends filled his car balloons. It was really funny cause then he said "I can't leave cause I don't have my key" and then one of his friends told him the key was in a balloon. But you know the funny part Dan the key was really with his friend and his friend didn't want Bonnie and Taylor to leave.

I just listened, but I was amazed at a five year old understanding of the situation. The best part was "you know Dan that guy that Bonnie married. . ." very cut very innocent.

Ok here goes. . .

Ok so I have been asked to do a blog for awhile and there was never really a need, because everyone was here. Now as most of you know my parents are moving to the other side of the world and need a way to connect to my boys and I. So I am going to try this bloging thing. I hope you enjoy.
