Why sit with the family when you can sit up at the bar by yourself?
The grandparents go outside for 5 minutes
to get the mail and you break the lamp.
This sort of thing just happens when your brother hits it 3 times
with the your stuffed animal.
Or if you're the brother the story goes like this,
"It was an accident."
Since Grandma Honey sets the table the night before...
(Grandpa lets her sleep in while he gets them ready and off to school)
Why not take advantage of it and get first choice on your cereal
while your sister is getting ready for bed.
You call your Dad and ask him to bring you 4 books from home
and he brings over 10 and you are SO excited.
You think you can go to sleep, but when it's dark and you're just
lying there, you call Grandma Honey back in
and ask if she will put on Mister Rogers.
It works like a charm, and has since you were TWO!
You can now get the tub ready without much help
But it doesn't even cross your mind to put your dirty clothes away.
Or to take your toys with you.
And the next day when one of you has a tummy ache
and stays home from school...
no one can really figure out if it hurts,
or if you just need a bit more Grandma Honey time.
And just so you know, no the twins don't live here everyday,
just last week while their Mom needed to go to Florida,
and one night this week while she was in Idaho.
