Fly on the wall
So I finally started wrapping my Christmas presents...the day before Christmas eve. I was sitting on my bed and the boys were playing on the floor, and playing very nicely I might add. I'm sure they started to forget that I was even close by. After a while, I started listening in to the "game". They were re-enacting their birthday parties. :) When they got to the cake part at Eric's train party, Eric was trying to convince Nick to "be the cake". Nick sort of got it, and he certainly wanted to do it for Eric, but just wasn't sure how. "Just BE THE CAKE, Nick!" said a frustrated Eric. Finally, a compromise was made. "I be the candle", said a proud Nick. So he stood there, tall and still, while Eric sang happy birthday....to himself....and then blew out the candle, which had Nick crumble to the ground in response. Eric then shouted, "TIME TO EAT THE CAKE!" and starting attacking his little brother.
good times! :)
