Screaming Contest....can I get in on that?

Friday we made a trip to McDonald's to have lunch outside and play! It was pretty for the early part of the day and we went to enjoy it!

Jack soooo wanted to play on the playground! There were some older kids out there so I would let him. At one point I caught him halfway up the swirly tube slide and and had to climb in and get him. NOT FUN!

We came home and played around the house, the boys made up a new game. The Screaming Contest. Oh, my ears were ringing. They sat right in front of each other and screaming. Sounds fun huh?

When one would stop the other would start, trying to be the loudest!!!

While I was cooking dinner, Barrett asked me to come turn on his t.v. I told him I was busy and would be in to do it in a minute. Well, I forgot and he got angry. I heard him yelling for me to come, which I have explained to him is NOT how we get our way. The next thing I know I hear, "Mommy, Mommy help!!!!" OH YES!!! My sweet little son has thrown a race car, and it shattered the flat screen. OH my heavens!!!! I was livid. Which might be a clue to where his temper comes from??? I sent him straight to TIME OUT. I told him he better not come out for his own sake! I immediately called Ryan, "Honey, come home and deal with YOUR son!! He said leave him in time out until I get home. So, I calmed down and continued with dinner. When Ryan walked in and said where is Barrett? UHHHH? In time out! I think? I hope? I hadn't heard him for a while. Did I forget about my own child???

Here is where Barrett was.......

Asleep in a laundry basket in time out! Bless his heart! My child + No Rest = an upset little boy!!! Can I get in on that screaming contest now? What a day!
