JEB: I was a good listener for Ms. Dee today.

KPB: Really? That's good. What about for Ms. Dorothy?

JEB: Yep. But what did Ms. Dee say?

KPB: I didn't see Ms. Dee after school, so she didn't say anything.

JEB: That's good.

KPB: What's good?

JEB: That she didn't tell you.

KPB: Tell me what?

JEB: Oh. Nothing.

KPB: Well, I think it's better for you to tell me than for me to hear it from her tomorrow, right?

JEB: Well ...

(long silence)

JEB: I showed my butt.

KPB: You pulled down your pants?

JEB: NO! Of course I didn't pull down my pants!

(long silence)

I just stuck it out.

(long silence)

And shook it.

(long silence)

And slapped it. Logan made me do it.


I'll spare you my lecture, but I did find out that he was forced to suffer through double time out and didn't get to play. But don't worry, he didn't want to play anyway. Of course.

Easter in Milwaukee

We flew on a plane, took a bus, and rented a Prius hybrid to get to Nanny & Grampy's, where there was much egg dying, water sliding, Mimi visiting, and scootering in 40 degree weather while wearing shorts. In other words: John-John's heaven.

Now we're back home and the house is a mess; all the clothes are still in the suitcase which is laying in the middle of the living room floor, and earlier today I sucked up his miniature Batman kite with the vacuum cleaner (a favorite Easter Bunny toy).

Additionally, we got a note sent home from school today regarding the loud repetition of and refusal to discontinue use of potty language. He was sent to the office.

I took away his gallon-size Ziploc bag full of candy (which he stashed in the freezer immediately upon arrival home from Milwaukee). I also asked him what happened. Here's his version:

"Cade was saying potty words but I was just saying 'cheeseburger' and we were gettin' all riled up and then Ms. Dorothy said to stop but we didn't but I wasn't saying real potty words only 'cheeseburger' and then she went and got Ms. Susan and then I went to the office and Ms. Susan set a timer and then I went back to the room."

And that's all I have to say about that.

But back to the positive ...

A big THANKS to Nanny & Grampy for such a lovely weekend. Here are some other pics:
