Hawkeyes--NOT a repeat and and extremely concise (considering the source)

Playing Slap Jack with my children, my son was dealing from the bottom, the middle, other people's hands...

Me: "You need to put the cards into a pile and give one to your sister, one to me, and one to you...one to your sister, one to me, and one to  you...one--"

Brayden: "What's the big deal? Why can't I do it MY way?"

Me: "Well, you need to do it the correct way so that you are able to play cards with others. Like maybe you could join our card games when we play with Grandma and Grandpa."

Ryan: "Yeah, and you'd better make sure you do it the right way when you play with Grandma. That woman's eyes are like a HAWK!"

My children make me smile...

    1. She turned seven last week, but has been convinced since she was about two that she is a teenager. Fun times for me!

  4. Do you often feel that you are correcting people that Ryan is a girl not a boy? I remember one day I took Coralie to church in a dress with roses on it and the priest told me "What a beautiful little boy you have!"...I couldn't stop laughing to correct him!

    1. Yes, but we knew what we were getting into when we named her. I'm pretty sure that she will blame us in therapy...
