They're both snuggled up in a pile on the bed behind me.

They look so out of place but so cute at the same time!
I can't handle dogs on the bed. May be because our is 100lbs. May also be the fact that DD has a nasty habit of crawling in their too. It's my space (and maybe DH's if he's not in the dog-house!).

The beauty of this is it's DS's bed!

Thank you! Thank you!

Have you ever been on a forum that makes banned members invisible? They type madly wondering why nobody responds. Just imagine their frustration!

LOL! Really??

OK so our plans went up in flames. Toddler X woke up and screamed his head off. He doesn't want me, he wants Mr. X. Now they decided to go watch some fancy car auction which I am not interested in and Toddler X took my drink plus remainder of my dinner with him.

Ahhh now all I want is for Calgon to take me away.

The good thing about having teen boys over, is you can count on them to clean you out of the kind of foods you shouldn't be eating much of.
Ha - looking forward to that age! Right now I avoid baking (which I love) mainly so DH and I don't eat all of whatever I make! So I feel your pain!

Aw, Zim! It's interesting that you mentioned this because one of the rules at our house is that we're not allowed to take bad moods out on each other (due to illness, sleepiness, what-have-you). Only having marginal success with the 3 year old on this front (shocking that!), but I think it's an important life lesson. At least now your DS's getting some rest, right?

Ha - gotta be careful with that Catholic guilt. My mom overused it and I'm somewhat impervious to guilt trips from others.

Ha- no, never, Hopes! Hope you and the doggies are having fun - I have this mental image of you carrying a large dog upstairs..

When my children were a PITA, I'd sweetly say "You sound soooooo tired."

They immediately stopped being PITAs because they didn't want naps.

But sometimes they'd say they were tired and wanted a nap, like it just dawned on them when I mentioned it.

It wasn't done as a punishment. Just "you sound soooooo tired."

So, in my experience, there's nothing wrong with putting a PITA kid down for a nap.
