Random Quickies

Bullseye, the deer with an arrow in her face, is still with us. The arrow is lodged into her sinus cavity, the tip caught under the bone, so little chance it is going to fall out on it's own. She still seems healthy and alert, not skinny so she is getting enough to eat. The animal rehab people still show up about once a week to try and get her with the tranquilizer gun but she is a crafty devil. Personally I think she is enjoying all the attention!

Levi got in trouble at school and had to drop his color to yellow. This is highly unusual. he NEVER gets in trouble at school. As his punishment he had to walk around the perimeter of the playground at recess with his arms crossed on his chest. Boy, when he got home, he was adamant he would NEVER get in trouble again. What did he do? He was being silly. Yeah, I know, the apple didn't fall from his parental trees!

Little S has been testing some limits. We have random outbursts of trash talk. The funny thing is that at 4 years old the extent of trash talk is along the lines of 'poopy, diaper baby' etc. Now that Little S is testing, Ahren is ramping it up too. Oh boy, RADish behavior in stereo. Luckily they have not thought of anything that I have not seen before, and nothing that comes even remotely close to upsetting me. They end up upsetting each other most of the time while they try and out-do each other.

So life is full and busy and good and amazing. The house is LOUD with three small boys, but mostly filled with happy sounds. The weather has been good so they spend many hours a day outside burning off energy. That makes for some really stinky, tired boys, just the way I like them!

I have been meaning to ask about Bullseye! Happy to hear she is okay but sheesh!
I like the idea to walk off the mad that the school used with Levi. Interesting.
Hope all is well!

Dh is a huge believer in a "dirty kid is a happy kid." His next kids' CD will even a song about that very thing. :)

Sounds exciting at your house!

Glad to hear you're taking it all in stride, because RADish in stereo gets really, really, really draining after awhile.

Tee-hee-hee! At least 3 or 4 times a day I'm a "poopy diaper butt". It's so lovely. I'm just glad they don't know the English swear words yet. Although, when we first adopted Joseph, he delighted in calling me the Ukrainian version of *itch over and over and over and OVER again. He was mighty surprised when he figured out I knew what he was saying and that I really didn't approve.
