My fahrty, bug-tattooed, spaghetti-sauce-body-paintin' boys: A Not My Child Monday Edition

** Hey, can you go vote for my boys in the Cutest Baby/Kids/Pet contest? Go visit Baby Makin(g) Machine and vote for them in the left hand column- Jacob is #16 under cutest baby, and Drew is #8 under cutest kid. It's easy to do-just go vote please! Also, please check out the March of Dimes raffle she is hosting- there are a LOT of great prizes- The button is on the left side of my blog.**

The Bees decided to brave a new frontier this weekend-going to see a movie in prime time. (Small aside- um never again- they wanted to make us pay $26.50 for the four of us! I looked at the clerk and said to her- "My son is under 2- do we really need to pay 6.50 for him to see the movie?" The answer was no- fortunately, and he got in free.) We went to see Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs (side note- adorable, definitely a must see for families with young children). I was impressed with my children's behavior, especially Jacob, who, as a 23 month old, sat still the whole movie, giggling and clapping, even saying "oh no!" in his adorable voice. We were very proud of him, and he totally did NOT say "I fahrted, Daddy", in his cute little voice during a quiet scene. My older son, Drew did NOT actually fart really loud, the sound accentuated by the hard plastic of the booster chair.

After the movie, Drew did NOT beg to put a temporary tattoo on his arm of a bug until we finally gave in. (Because we NEVER give in on things just to quiet our children down, nope, NOT us.)

I hope this child looks at his first born as lovingly as he did this tattoo.

Jacob did NOT run away and cry in fear of the big bug on Drew's arm. Of course the Mommarazzi was there to take the picture of him running.
Then, the next day I cooked a big spaghetti dinner for Sunday night- Jacob did NOT use the spaghetti sauce for body paint, nope, not at all!

For these reasons, I was NOT excited for bath night tonight. No, I really mean that, although I guess you could say I was excited for the outcome of the bath night. Mr. Bee gave them a bath, which was NOT a total relief. I so did NOT give Mr. Bee a big smooch when I saw that he had managed to rub that bug tattoo off. Score +10 points for Mr. Bee!

    hmmmmm...did you feed the boys lots of onions before the movie. That's what normally triggers the fharting around these parts.

    And I love the book "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs" and would totally see the movie but my son (5!!!) thinks movies are too loud and won't go.
