Mommy you have boobies, and I have a sword!

So Cole has noticed the difference between boys and girls. "Mommy you have boobies and I have a sword!" He wasn't talking about his penis though, he was talking about a literal Nerf sword. Only boys can play with swords, that is NOT a girl toy, duh! Of course, my mind cracked up because he put it in one sentence. I now give him 10 years and he will be dying for a girl to play with his sword.
After dinner last night he was proud of his belly and was sticking it out as far as he could. He told Katie to feel his belly, he has a baby in there. I stopped him right there, "No hun, only girls can grow babies in their tummies." I had barely finished what I was saying and knew the next line. "No Katie is not growing a baby in her belly, not until she is way, way, WAY older!"
Luckily, the door locks have been working so I am very happy to say I have less to report on. School starts next week, kindergarten! He is wanting to get his hair cut before then. So it will be Alex's job to take him this weekend and tell him he is only getting a trim not a buzz cut. He has the most beautiful hair, hair most women would kill for. Hair many men would kill for too. Cole said it makes him look like a girl, so we need to convince him how handsome it is. This picture was taken right after his last trim.

Little Stinkers!!

No this is not blood, it is lipstick. My favorite color of lipstick, so that sucks. But it really does look like she had a good time. That smile, she is saying cheese. She doesn't realize how much trouble she is in at the moment.


So, as if this isn't enough, the next day the two of them decide to re-decorate their room some. They got up at 7:00 am to get the materials out of the pantry. They decided to use grits and toilet paper. They poured grits all over their beds and unrolled and shredded 4 rolls of toilet paper. Luckily I caught them before they went through every roll. I made them stand with their backs against the wall while I vacuumed their beds.

This kept going on for days. We had to remove all furniture from their room, put a lock on their closet doors to keep them from pulling the closet shelving down. We had to remove their furniture except their beds. They were pulling all the clothes out of the shelves, and I got tired of folding their clothes everyday and putting them away. Katie has been drawing on the walls pencil, crayons, chalk anything she can get her hands on. She has been saving the markers, permanent markers for herself; drawing all over herself, her brother, and the leather furniture. It's amazing that she keeps finding them too. I think I have collected all writing utensils in the house but she has her own stash somewhere. So I've had the house on lockdown now for about 3 days without incidence, but they are smart kids. I'm sure they will come up with something new to destroy the house with soon. Something I never would have thought of either.

Spoke to soon, I have a vase full of wine corks that I have collected over the years. Sean decided to test the toaster out with the corks. I had made eggo's for breakfast and forgot to unplug the toaster. Shit!
