Yeah...that makes Sense?!
This morning - as I sat at my computer e-mailing away... I heard the familiar rise in voices...the escalation of screams and "no's" and wines...that were about to end in an "all out" brawl between Kyle and Will. The kind that you KNOW for certain is NOT going to fix itself...so you sit and listen and wait...for the moment that you HAVE to step in before someone ends up with a black eye...What I heard went something like this:
Kyle: Will...Diego isn't real!
Will: Is too Kyle!
Kyle: No he isn't real! (a bit louder this time)
Will: YES YES YES YES YES YES YES....HE IS! (really loud and with conviction!)
Kyle: Diego isn't real because On Diego animals talk and they don't talk in real life!
Will: ANIMALS DO TALK TYLE ("Tyle" is kyle is the language of Will...and this time...he is in tears and speaking very softly...it was very sad!)
Kyle: Nope...they don't! (with a snotty tone in his voice that made even me want to knock him flat!)
Will: MOMMY.....TYLE IS BEING MEAN!! (full on crying now)
Kyle: Mommy...Will is hitting me!! (screaming like a crazy man and crying...and RUNNING)
So I decide this is the point where i need to get up and see what i can do to help the situation! I pick up Will in order to hold him back from swinging at his brother and I say to Kyle "Honey...Animals talk...Santa's reindeer talk right?" And he says...with tears on his face and with the most serious voice ever.
"No animals talk mom...Santa's Reindeer don't talk ...they only fly!"
Yeah...that was my morning...and this is my life! :) Here's wishing you all a day filled with sense!
