This is Miles (blurry I know) with his potty seat on his head as a hat. Just so you know, he refuses to use it to actually go potty, so it is at least clean…
Nathan came home grumpy tonight because he was hungry. We have a word that sums up the explosion that happens inside a person and makes them behave badly when Hungry and Grumpy collide… we call it “Grungry.” Grungriness is a very dangerous thing and has a way of possessing a person, causing them to tear through houses and feelings with no regard for place or time or general civility. The best way to combat Grungriness is to feed the beast as soon as possible. Preferably with protein. In emergency situations take a spoon of peanut butter and insert it in to the mouth of the possessed person. This will buy some time until a really meal can be prepared or bought.
Wylie had a free Karate lesson at Day Camp today. I can expect lots of high kicks and chops in my very near future. I can also expect that Miles will copy these kicks and chops, but will not understand the finer points of “pretending”. This will annoy his brother and I will have to order everyone in the backyard in order to preserve my sanity.
For those keeping score at home – in addition to Piracy, Gunfights at Dawn, Movie Making and General Malay we will have the art of Kung Fu added to our day, and the Potty Hat to our wardrobe.
