Oh gosh- get your heads out of the gutter, lol.
Today was one of those days where its so peaceful-
you’re waiting for the other shoe to drop.
I sat on the couch, working on my laptop, listening to laughter coming from the boys’ room. It started as giggling and I couldn’t help but think,”This is the life.”
When the laughter grew louder, I smiled a little bigger,”Finally! They aren’t fighting!”
A few moments later, the laughter increased, reached a higher pitch, and was accompanied by a spitting sound. Reluctantly, I got up to investigate.
There they were- my sweet, two youngest offspring… and the cat.
And so went the following conversation:
Me: (extreme trepidation in voice) “What’s going on in here?”
Jacob: (still laughing hard) “Nicholas stuck out his tongue and licked me!”
Me: “And it made you BOTH crack up?”
Jacob: (laughing harder) “He’s laughing because I licked him back!”
Me: “So, why is he spitting now?”
Jacob: (laughing so hard I thought he’d throw up) “Stever came into the room-” (busting up now)
Jacob: (practically peeing his pants) “Nicholas licked STEVER!”
Nicholas: (pointing to Stever) “Ki Ki!”
I learned a few things at that moment:
- Stever is a VERY loved cat.
- Boys will never just “let something go”- lick them and they’ll lick you back.
- I really need to start kissing my boys on their foreheads because I’m starting to see where their mouths have been.
