Lukeisms

Luke's been having a tough couple of days. Last night and most of today I've been after Jozie and attending her - making sure she's comfortable, taking it easy, letting her have friends over to see her (I usually don't let kids come in to play since we live so close together I don't want them to take for granted that they can come over anytime they want), etc. So needless to say, I'm sure he's been feeling a bit neglected. We played a game together this afternoon while Jozie was using the computer and taking a walk with Jordan and I took him on a walk to the mail box while Jozie was watching TV with Ayianna. He's been so cranky and crabby and doesn't want to listen!

Anyway, he said some things today that I just had to share.

Jozie slept on the couch last night because she found it comfortable and supportive for her arm so I slept down here on the floor next to her so if she needed something I wouldn't have to run up and down the stairs. When Luke woke up this morning and found me sleeping on the floor he said, "Mom, you should have let me sleep down here on the floor so you could have slept in your bed. I could have taken care of my little angel!" LOL They were the first words out of his mouth this morning and unfortuantely things only went down hill from there!

I just got done telling him to go up and get ready for bed - he hates brushing his teeth. He told me that he brushed his teeth for 8 minutes the other day so he was good for 4 days! He didn't want to brush them tonight so he said he would just brush them longer tomorrow. I think he is taking his tooth brushing timer a bit literal! LOL

ROFL! If only brushing your teeth could work that way...

What is it with kids not liking to brush their teeth? Every night we have the same battle. "Open your mouth, no keep it open... bite together, no keep your mouth open and bite together. Quit crying - it doesn't hurt..."

LOL about the brushing teeth. That's so sweet what he said about his sister. I hope today was much better!

I had a dream the other night that your blog made CNN Headline News and you had like a million hits over night. A picture of you Luke anda Jozie was all over the media.

Kids' logic....stuff you gotta document so they can laugh at themselves when they grow up, right? =) I hope things get easier for you soon....tough when one needs you so much and the other tries to vie for your attention by acting up.
