Mother's have many jobs...


Sometimes we're a nurse, a cook, a taxi driver, a maid (you've heard the saying) but it seems like more often than not I am the referee of a fighting match.

So...
In this corner we have Cameron measuring 3' 9 1/2" and weighing in at 40.4lbs. He's lean, he's loud, he's rowdy, but don't let his sweet smile fool you, he is one tough kid. Watch out for his "tattle tale" move...it will get you every time!



His opponent is Austin measuring 3' and weighing in at 28.8lbs He's small, He's fast and he's fierce and he usually gets his own way, but don't let his size fool you, he can definitely hold his own. Watch out for his "I'll sit on you move". It will make you laugh so hard that you won't be able to get up until you scream and the referee comes to remove him.



This fight may never end, we are on round 50 (at least) with these two!

Where is my first-born, little fighter? Erik measuring 4' 7" and weighing in at 60.2 lbs is quietly playing Bionicles in the playroom after a long round one (while cleaning the playroom) with Cameron..



My fighter in training....
He may look sweet and innocent now, but it's just a matter of tme before he jumps into the ring with the others.



But at the end of the day, they're brothers and they really do love each other and that makes me a happy Mom.



Epilogue: My boys were wondering why I was measuring and weighing them and taking their pictures. I told them I was writing a story about them and that I would read it to them later. Well, I just read them their story and they laughed and laughed and then 3 of the 4 boys ran off to the`playroom to play happily ever after...
until the next round begins...
which should be starting up here in the next few minutes.

That's funny! Crazy kids. I love that you measured and weighed them all. I figured you just knew it off the top of your head. You're too funny!

That is so funny! I think we had the exact same day yesterday- see my post. Is there anyway to remove the "referee" title from our job description? I think maybe we just need to put them in a padded room, give them those big padded sticks, and just let them go. If anything, it might be really fun to watch.

Oh, how I'd like to be a fly on the wall and just watch the boys. I think it would be pretty entertaining. The pictures are so funny . . . they are just a hoot! Gotta' love 'em!
