Time for some editing

Dwight and I went out last night. I gave the kids my usual lecture about the rules while I am gone. I am really good at the lectures. I went out in the garage to find my shoes, and then came back in to put them on. I guess the kids thought when I went into the garage I left, because when I came back in Calvin jumped up real quick from where he had Howie pinned down on the ground. Howie was crying with his hands over his face and Calvin had something hidden behind his back. All I had to do was give Calvin my "look". (You should all learn this.) He showed me the Cookie monster stamp he had been hiding from me. Poor Howie got Stamped. Doesn't he look so super sad?

Can you believe I thought my kids would just sit on the couch with a blanket, quietly watching tv the whole time I was gone? (Cuz that was what I told them to do in my lecture) Looks like I need to rewrite a few chapters of my parenting book.

Lol. Good thing it was Calvin and not Bailey doing the stamping since Bailey is babysitting for me tonight.

But did you specifically say no face stamping each other? Otherwise Calvin didn't break any rules. Poor Howie tho! I'm torn! I can't decide if this is funny or sad.

I'm sooooo not buying your parenting book now. Poor Howie. At least I know that if my kids did that to Bub, he would totally deserve it. I'm justsayin...

Wait so this was before you left? What was the status when you actually left and came back for reals?

I say it's funny. Howie doesn't look that sad. It will one day be a happy memory and you've got the blog post to prove it.

When I first saw the picture I thought he had huge welts on his face. THAT would have been sad. The stamps are just funny.

Cute boy.
