No Mute Button

I just had the brilliant idea to take advantage of all of this girly-ness and dress Em up in a petticoat, tights, pearl necklaces and a hat, and as soon as I dragged my camera out she started pouting and said "Can I eat? I'm just stahvin'. I'm done wit this now." (said she who didn't eat the muffins.) Big Kid was pissed I didn't have "somefing cool for him to dwess in, like a bwack sirt and some cool sungwasses".

Damn kids.

Now they are eating Spaghetti-Os (barf) and playing copycat. A minute ago Big Kid just jumped up and ran around the table to kiss her on the cheek and I think they've exchanged 900+ hugs in the last 24 hours.

All in all, they've been really good. Not even that much trouble, it's just the additional noise that is an issue. If they came with a mute button, we could do this more often.

If they came with a mute button, there'd probably be no need for birth control!

At times I wish I had a mute button. I often say things out loud that should have been internal thoughts! Maybe people just think I have Tourettes Syndrome.

It must be Spaghetti-O's night as well as the time for bickering. And as far as "best friends" go, the words BFF, forever, not anymore and again are all banned in the house! LOL

Ahh, a mute button. What we all wish for.

If you ever find this elusive mute button - I'd like to use it on my pubescent hormonal almost 13 year old.
