Today, is Friday. And had it been, say Monday, when I walked into the bathroom fifteen minutes before the boys were due at school to find this:
(point and shoot on last legs of battery came through to capture this, albiet fuzzy moment)
I would have been halfway through my third vodka now, a mere half hour later.
I would love to tell you that his brother did this to him or that it was an accident but if I did, I would be flat out lying. If you know me, then you know I am not overly adept at lying. Neither are my kids so while I don't know exactly what went down, these are the facts:
He didn't deny doing it.
Jack was no where near him during his stint in the bathroom.
Jack had already brushed his teeth.
Jack often brushes his teeth first and also often gets Kamden's brush ready for him.
Jack did not do this today.
Kamden could be heard muttering that if Jack hadn't got his toothbrush ready for him (grateful little bugger isn't he?), he was going to put toothpaste in his hair.
I didn't think too much of all this as I overheard it while making our bed. Such empty teasing threats are common in our household (judge us if you will but I am willing to bet we have more fun that you). The boys can often be seen chasing each other around the house weilding the toothpaste tube pretending they will put in the other's hair (with me yelling to get back in the bathroom before there is toothpaste all over the carpet - see I am not THAT fun). Up until today, it was all just a joke.
I just never thought one of them would do it to themselves. Vodka, anyone?
