While listening to the Weird Al song “The Biggest Ball of Twine in Minnesota” Sweet Boy#3 notes–“Diet and chocolate soda are like matter and antimatter.” –too true, if one is going to purchase a chocolate soda, it should be brimming with sugar. However, Weird Al had to make his meter work for the song and diet chocolate soda just sounded better.

Sweet Boy#3–“You don’t own my bed!”
Boy Child–“I claim this bed for ___. I just annexed your bed!
Sweet Boy#2–“I claim this for Sweet Boy#2!”
Boy Child–“You just annexed his face.”
Our dog, Princess Leia, is amazingly communicative with her eyebrows. She tells whole stories with subtle eyebrow movement, mainly of the “What are you doing with that plate of sausage and why don’t you place it a bit lower when you leave to go to the bathroom” variety. So picture this: These words, sung by Sweet Boy#3, to the tune of Frosty the Snowman–“Eyebrows can tell us, what Leia is thinking…” It was a musical masterpiece, so fun!
One of the boys spots a dirty dish with some cream of wheat residue in the bottom. Shock strikes the household. “You had Cream of Wheat without us? I can’t believe we missed it! We should have it for dinner!!!” Yes, cream of wheat is a family favorite and yes I dared to dine upon this ambrosia alone without my sons. Oh, the horror! But, since I am indeed a loving mother, I’m willing to fix it for dinner, anytime.
