Shrieking Monkey, Shrieking Daddy

Photo source: Esther Kluth
This past weekend was a rough one for me, what with the wife away on a girls' retreat with her sisters and our daughters, and me left at home with all the boys. I felt quite a bit like this screaming monkey, especially during feeding time (theirs, not mine). And diaper changing time. And going-to-bed time.

But the boys weren't daunted by my shrieks or my bared fangs. If anything, it only encouraged their antics.

Oh, honey, you didn't know that? I thought every parent knew once they started going nuts the kids ramped up their antics. It's their secret weapon!!! :D

Yea, that and their ultra ninja noodle move they engage anytime you manage to grab them to put them to bed. They turn to liquid, I swear.

I've got two boys all to myself most times and I've got to say that sooner or later you find that you can't beat 'em... so you join 'em. ~8)

Limp noodle is right. not to mention the multiple trips to the potty and glasses of water that they NEED! Sometimes we would start bedtime an hour before we wanted them down, just so they were alseep on time!
