5/20/13, Stick ‘em up!

“Oh, yeah?”


“That’s it. Let’s go!”

Spoons crash to the counter.  They brandish both fingers at each other like pistols.

“Pew! Pew! Pew!”

“Pow! Pow! POW!”

“I’m going to beat you!” Maniacal laugh.

“Oh, yeah?”

“Yeah. Pew! Pew! Pew!”

“Well, guess what?”


“You’re out of bullets.  Bang!  I win!”

The littlest monkey drops his finger guns in shocked defeat.  Big brother grins smugly and goes back to munching his Cheerios.  The seeds of revenge quietly take root behind his baby brothers eyes.  There will be another duel at dawn.

5/6/13, Lesson Learned

“Moooooooooommy.  Frankie won’t let me have the marble.”

“Did you ask him nicely?”


“Frankie, your brother just asked you nicely for the marble.”

The six-year-old shrugs.  “I just taught him a valuable lesson.”

“Oh, you did?”


“What was the lesson?”

“You can’t always get what you want.  It’s the way of the world.”

4/29/13, Little Isaac Newton


“Oh, no!  Did you step on a Lego?”

Six-year-old grabs foot. “Yeah.”

“See?  That’s why I’m always asking you to pick them up.”

“But Mom!  It’s not my fault.  It’s because of GRAVITY!”


“YES!  Its makes Legos fall to the floor!”
