A Little Whine with the Cheese

My house is overrun.

One thing everyone can send to my boys is toys. And giftcards for toys. Amazing. With Christmas, we get snowed in with new playthings, WE have new fishing poles, new games, new cars, new racing sets, new bikes. You'd think the boys would be so busy with the newness, they'dhave no time to whine.

If you think that, you have no children.

Joey's new joke is to ask you drink from his cup or take a bite of his food, then mock-whine, "{Your name, beautifully whined}, why you drink my drink [or eat my food]?" The everyone else in teh room is expected to turn a reproachful eye to the accused and tsk-tsk them, then Joey laughs hysterically. I will have to warn his teachers.

Andy has decided it is funny to be the one who take teh sip or pretends to take a bite.

So I have two bored children, wandering around laughing hysterically at each other while whining Andy's name.

Yes indeed.

How very inventive your boys are! LOL Yes, what IS it about kids and the gajillion new toys/things to play with yet they prefer the simple things? Perhaps the toy industry has it all wrong after all. IMHO. And yet we persist, don't we?

Well, that sounds SUPER delightful.

The whining, it kills me. I wish I just couldn't hear at that frequency.

Too funny! M asked me to make crafts with her the morning after Christmas. I looked around at the new toys and thought, "Are you kidding me?" Argh!
