3 steps to bugging your brother

1. Hide and write key games and names on a piece of paper.


2. Post on bedroom door. While chuckling to yourself.


3. Run and taunt your brother to come see.


The culprit didn't actually win the game, or so I was loudly told. I am sure that's what made this little project SO satisfying for him!

I don't know about your kids, but mine are really big on technicalities. They insist and argue that reports on each other be completely accurate down to the smallest detail.

-I didn't actually hit him, mommy. My hand barely touched him as I was walking past.

-I asked him to give it to me.
-But you didn't say please!
-I did say please.
-Well, it was the way you said it. You said it in a not polite way.

Y'know, that sort of thing.

For the record, if it had been ten degrees warmer outside, I would've dominated their basketball game. It's a little known fact that I can actually slam dunk the ball.




(Did I have you going there for a second? How about a fraction of a second?)

What a relief! My kids aren't the only ones to fight!!! Who knew? lol!
Just last week they had a huge falling out over a race. My oldest was in second so he stuck his arm out over his brothers shoulder as they were crossing the finish line. He declared himself the winner because his arm passed first. We actually had to consult someone with a little more knowledge than ourselves on this one. It was determined that your chest (not head or arms) must be the first across the line.
So we have a winner now :-) which means we also have a loser :-(
I've almost outlawed competitions in our household...
