Say what?

two boys

So yesterday, MM and I took the wee boys on a small trip to go pick up Jason’s work truck.  Easy for us to do, especially with a CD player to entertain the boys on the way over.  You see how entertained Scooter was!

The plan was for them to sleep on the way home.  Oh well.  So much for planning! 

We were actually going to get home early enough that I wanted them to take a good nap in the bed anyway, so when I had them alone in the car on the return trip, I naturally wanted them to stay awake.  I’m not dumb.  I smelled some quiet time for Grammie!

Play word games, right?  Challenge their minds, make them think!  Keep them looking at horses and cows—anything to ward off sleep for now.

Being the older, I began with Doodlebug, asking him questions that he knew:  his name, his parents’ names, where he lives, etc.—all things that he needs to know.  Check.

And then, when I go through the litany with Scooter (remember, he is 3) and ask where he lives, he proudly said Planet Earth!

That cracked me up.  I think they both live there—most of the time!

Life is never dull, with two wee boys!  Anyone wanna come over and play today?

You're right- they live here on Earth MOST of the time! It sounds like you've had fun w/them (although I might know a different story that I shall not share). Love to all of you!

I'd love to come over and spend the day. It would be grand, but I'm so very far away. I'm from planet earth too. Bwahahahahaha.

Have a terrific day and weekend. Hugs to you both. :)

Planet Earth - is a correct answer! Those boys are so cute, and yes, they are growing so fast. Enjoy the day today.
