Somebody call CPS!

To any of you in the mid-Atlantic area who felt that sonic boom at about 6:00 a.m., I apologize. Those agonizing screams cut through the air, paralyzing everyone for miles and miles! Lil Joe wailed and wailed, barely catching his breath long enough to bellow my name "Maaaaahm-meeee! NOOOO, dat's not riiiiight!" What exactly did I do to cause such torment? I put his blue shorts on him. I had first tried to put the tan shorts on, and he pushed them away vehemently and repeatedly. I gave him a choice between the two pairs of shorts, and he threw himself on the bed and refused to look at me. He batted away the blue shorts, but threw the tan, they offended him so. As we were already running late, I exercised my parental prerogative and and wrestled him into the blue shorts. And then Hubby and I witnessed a meltdown the likes of which has not been seen since the Three Mile Island incident. Lil Joe was so furious with me he was barely coherant. So Hubby took over the clothing duty. And what ultimately calmed the savage beast? The tan shorts.

Who's Who

    Hubby- aka DH My husband since 1995. He is the head of the band department at a college prep school, and dabbles as a wanna-be pop star.

    The Princess- aka DD. Third grader at the local parochial school. Loves butterlies, sparkly things, the color purple and has recently developed a crush on one of the twins from "The Suite Life of Zach and Cody". Is ready for her teenage years, having already perfected her exasperated sigh and dramatic eye-roll.

    Hoss- aka DS1. Kindergartener and resident spirited child. His aunt likes to call him "the evil genius" because of his penchant for letting a lack of intellectual stimulation lead him into mischief. Likes trucks, sports, building things and burping. His current favorite word is "underwear."

    Lil Joe- aka DS2. Born in 2003. Doesn't say much we can understand, but has mastered the important stuff ("eat!", "Wash hands!", "Want chocolate ones!", "Hockey game!") Likes to push buttons, much to the consternation of whoever is trying to watch a DVD. Firmly refuses to use the potty, despite evidence that he is physically ready to be out of diapers, indicating a level of stubborn that eclipses even that of his parents and siblings.

    Me? I'm the Mama. That's all you need to know.
