My Silly Boys

I had just given the boys a bath after playing outside with Holden in the mud (thanks for the sidewalk talk Whitney) and Lukas was getting his PJ's on. He had laid his underwear out so he could decide which ones he wanted to wear...Max grabbed a pair and wanted to be like his big brother. If only he were potty trained! Doesn't he look cute in his "qeens"? (that's how Max says Lightning McQueen).
Here is the underwear all laid out.
The same night as the underwear, Lukas was very insistant that he get Max's binkie. I just got done listening to Love and Logic CD's, so I wanted to give him choices and consequences. So I said, "Sure you can have a binkie, but boys your age that want binkies have to sleep in the garage." After about 10 minutes of whining he decided he wanted to sleep in the garage. I put him in the back of the CRV and gave him a flashlight and said, "Good night. I hope you don't get too hot out here and don't worry about the spiders, you can just use your flashlight b/c they don't like light." He was okay for a few minutes, but when I had to turn the garage light off he started to freak out. End of story, he gave me back the binkie and slept in his own bed and now we have no more problems with binkies!
Here are Lukas and Tommy riding their bikes. Lukas and Tommy would never stop playing if it weren't for us mean moms! Every morning when Lukas wakes up he asks me if he can go to Tommy's to play. And then if I say no, he'll ask about 10 more times during the day until I finally decide to let him. When they do play together, they like to ride bikes up and down our street (we only live about 8 houses apart). They said to each other one time, "Why do we go back and forth and back and forth?" They are good buddies. Even Max gets excited when he sees Tommy. We went for a walk/bike ride and I pulled Max in the wagon. I had to get something inside the house and found Lukas and Tommy in Tommy's backyard playing with the hose. Lukas was drenched. I asked what happened and Lukas said, "I poured the hose on my helmet so I wouldn't sweat so much." It was a hot day and he had the right idea! Then another time they were playing in our back yard and I went back to check on them...Lukas was peeing in our backyard and so was Tommy. They were 20 feet apart, but having a ball just peeing on the grass! Boys!!! Most of the time when Tommy comes over, he doesn't tell him mom and Lukas has done the same to me on several occassions. I'll just happen to look out the window and see Lukas running from Tommy's back to our house. Can you say T R O U B L E?

Ha ha! It was so funny to see the underwear scattered all over the floor! I'm going to need LOTS of help with Paxton as he grows; most of the people I know around my mom's neighborhood don't have boys. Mind if I call you when I need advice and help? :)
