My boys have decided that the husband for Emma is someone that could beat each of them up individually but together, they could take him down.
I have no idea why in the world deciding that was necessary, but there it is.
Last night we were talking and it came up. I suggested maybe Adam was in that category. "No," Braeden said, "He'd wreck us."
Mark was game to test the theory.
Adam was too, apparently. He said he'd give them one minute and if they could pull him off the bed, he'd give them each $5. He said I would time it.
I didn't want any part of it. I tried to talk them out of it, saying they would break something (the bed, a lamp, each other).
Boys will be boys.
It was a minute of high anxiety for me. I kept yelling, "Don't break the lamp!" and "Don't hurt him!"
Any him. Just stop.
They couldn't get him off the bed, although they came close. Adam wouldn't give them time to confer and make a plan. Later, he said they could have easily gotten him off if they'd made a plan and worked together more.
I just think boys are weird.
So that was alarming. So was this:
I was gone for one night. One night.
And this happened.
A dead withered leaf next to Felicia!
I know it happened fast because I would have noticed a yellowing leaf. I check her often because she causes me anxiety.
I can't turn my back on Felicia.
Or go out of town apparently.
