The subtext is "Duh, Mom!"

The eye rolling tendencies have spread to the boys. Recent conversations: Hoss: Mom, why is Daddy's school having their picnic on a rainy day?! Me: Well, they didn't know it was going to be a rainy day when they picked the date. And since the food and games and stuff are already at the school, they'll just move it all inside. Hoss: Well, of course they didn't know it was going to be a rainy day! Nobody knows when the rain is coming except God and Mother Nature! *********************************************************************************** Lil Joe had on his cranky pants at bedtime last night. Me: I'm going to start calling you Oscar, 'cause you're just a grouch! Lil Joe: I not Oscar! I not green! Me: No, you're not green. Guess what- Oscar wasn't always green. He used to be orange! Did you know that? Lil Joe: Orange?! Dat's just silly, Mommy! Not orange!

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.
