There are times when I just shake my head and wonder why I thought having two rowdy boys would be a good idea. I would liken them to loud little boys, but my nephews who are 8ish and 5ish were visiting over the weekend and were perfect angels. My boys, though, can rough-house with the best of them. Fortunately, they also embrace the joys of couch potato-ness and are becoming able to share not only Mommy, but the sofa as well.
After much jockying and posturing we have finally figured out our cozy spots and are settling in, which is great since for the last two days a certain new puppy has been waking up at 4:00 a.m.
