You know - there are just some things you get to do as Mom - and I didn't want any of my favorite blog readers to feel left out - so I am sharing this one!!
Chloe announced she was having a puppet show in 4 minutes - so we had all better hurry to see it. As the dutiful mom, I called the boys, I quit building blogs, and off we went to watch the performance. It was something, let me tell you, llamas doing flips, I'm not kidding - we had it all!
The only problem was is that it was a "mute" performance - Chloe said they were all sleepy! The boys and I exchanged many hidden laughs, but yes, we humored her. UNTIL Aaron decided to sneak UNDER the puppet table and start stealing the puppets. From there it just went downhill. Chloe was distraught, the boys were laughing, and I was trying to decide which side I should take! So I told Chloe - "This has been a great puppet show, now you may have 3 more minutes and then we are done watching for now." She replied with, "Mom, that will never be enough time but OK." I then turned to the boys and said, "You guys need to watch NICELY for 3 more minutes." To which Chloe smiled her 4 year old, VERY INNOCENT, smile and said, "BUSTED!!!"
