Some Kind of an Update

I know I've been behind on updating anything lately. Sorry folks (all 5 of you that might check this site on a semi-regular basis). Things have been hectic around here and I just haven't had much of an opportunity to sit down and put some words out here.


I wanted to take a moment and share two specific instances from this week before I forgot them though. One was a couple of days ago, and one was this morning. Sometime on Monday, Anita went into the bathroom and I hear her shriek and groan that motherly "oh great, look what one of my brood has done now" kind of groan. I was sitting on the couch and had just seen Zach run into and out of the bathroom about 2 minutes prior to this. He was in there for less than 20 seconds before I yelled for him to get out of the bathroom and he did so. Well, I go into the bathroom to see Anita scowling over the toilet with a quite disgusted look on her face. I look down to see the toilet seat up and the hand towel floating in the toilet water. Classic. Of course, a laugh just popped from my mouth like a soap bubble popping. I couldn't help it. I caught the blame of course. After all, I should have kept him out of the bathroom right? I mean, 20 seconds and all..... I figured that was about the same as keeping him out of there.


This morning, I awoke suddenly to Anita shrieking quite loudly, "CONNER NO! What on earth are you thinking!?" To which Conner replied, "I was going to cut Zach's hair. I got a haircut, and I wanted him to have a haircut like mine." Though I wasn't in the room, I can very well picture the scene with the look on Anita's face and the pose the boys were in.... good stuff.

    Ilove the towel story. Proof "He Is" faster than a speeding bullet.

    I guess Conner takes after Aunt Ash. Does anyone remember the bangs trim that Ashley did to herself? None were left when she finished, because she could not get them even. I just felt like crying, but I only said, "You have to live with it." All this the day before her cheerleader pictures were taken.

    Oh yes, we all remember the bangs situation. We won't let Ashley ever forget it.
