I Wish We Had 4 More...

School starts on August 7. I can not wait.

BigBrother is at an age where it is tons of fun to really torment LittleBrother and it's driving me crazy(and you know that it's a short drive). Constant picking. Incessant picking. We went to the park today and BB went down the slide and it was hot enough to burn him a bit. He came out all "ow! ow!" and all I could do was snicker and think "yeah you little turd. that's payback for being so mean to your brother!"

This year BB will be in middle school while LB is still in elementary. I think it'll be good for LB for them to be in separate schools. Last year, some of BB's friends would give LB a hard time since he was BB's brother.

And the pouting! Oh man, the effing pouting makes me want to gouge my eyes out. Makes me want to gouge their eyes out. I mean, c'mon... I'm taking you to a movie, buying you candy, and you're going to pout because of I don't know what?

I told the kids today that if they didn't straighten up that I'd barbecue them. That started a discussion of how would be the best way to cook someone and what kind of sauces would you use.

I don't care what the hell we're talking about as long as nobody is whining!

Whine makes a pretty good peaple-sauce.

Since I've already complete K-12, there's really no need to have a summer vacation anyway. Therefore, I'm all for abolishing Summer, Christmas, and Thanksgiving breaks for children. From now on, kids will go to school 7 days a week and eat nothing but gruel abd prune juice.

I am so hoping by the time my kid starts school it will be year-round thing LOL
I have been lurking here awhile Chickie, and you really crack me up. BB & LB are lucky to have you. Tiny & Stinky too
(BTW we used to have a basset named Flash,we miss him so much so pics of Stinky are especially enjoyed).

I like the idea of year around school too. I think having summers off for kids leads to unrealistic expectations as an adult.

I don't understand the school system any longer. In the 'old days' (lol) we had the whole summer off and I don't remember us getting into a lot of trouble...What has happened to that??? I mean, when did that change, and why?
I certainly can understand you be sick of BB Teasing LB incessantly...and I think it was great that your threat started a discussion which sounds like it was funny! You have a wonderful way, Chickie...!

BBQing the kids would wreck the grill. You'd never get rid of the stench. Lock them both in the same room and either they'll be getting along by the time you let them out or there'll only be one left alive. Either way life will be quieter.

Joey Polanski - I'd rather drink my whine.

JediMacFan - I like the way you think!

Patti_Cake - Year round school would be fantastic! Stinky's glad that you like looking at her :)

Mike - May as well start crushing their dreams while they're small.

OOLOTH - When I was a kid, we did A LOT more playing outside. I think the problem in my house is that the kids are inside so much!

The Phosgene Kid - I have suggested a Death Match. Sweety wouldn't let me do it though.

Oh I hear you about the pouting. With 4 kids, I get more than my fair share and the kicker? None of them are toddlers and 2 are grown! Eeeek!
