"I want MOM! M-O-M! Not you, Dad! I want MOM!"
So I walked into the bathroom to find him in there with a huge beard and moustache made of soap suds.
He looks at me, points up & says,
"Pass me the razor there, eh, Mom?!"
Madden replies, "THERE IS NO WAY I'm WASHING BETWEEN THE CHEEKS OF MY ARSE WITH A HABS FACECLOTH!!! GET ME ANOTHER FACECLOTH!" We had a pretty good chuckle. And the purple facecloth made him smell nice.
Madden's response... In song was...
"I came from the place where angels are born..."
Sent from my iPhone
"You’re the best mom euvr!”Me: “ahhhhhhhh! Thanks, Madden!”
Him: “well, uh, only sometimes...”
I was just in saying my 'good nights' to Madden, and he was laying there counting in Gaelic, "aon, a dha, a tri, a ceithir (continues) ...aon-deug, da, dheug, tri deug, ... naoi deug... um.... deich times 2..."
Dare say he's got a good handle on the Gaelic AND the mathematics ;)
I'm sure you're not, dear.
We're still laughing...
Anywhoo... Brenley pipes up,
"Yeah! Well you treat me differently than the other kids in class!"
"No, I don't. When you're not paying attention or up and about out of your seat, I call you out on it just as I would anyone else in the class... Would you have done that last year?"
"The year before that? .... the year before THAT?!..."
Brenley retorted with the utmost disdain,
"... well, it's not my fault this is the year the butterfly decided to break free from her cocoon!"
To which, Kyle and I both rolled our eyes...
"Spare me!" Kyle said.
Then I noticed a snapchat coming in on the ipad & I may have threatened to read it, which totally put vinegar in Brenley's wounds and she stormed off to her room and slammed the door.
Little Mr. I-Love-When-My-Sister-Is-In-Trouble starts to sing from side stage:
"Butterfly fly away..."
Then as we're laughing, Madden says,
"WHA? Butterflies fly out of their racoons!"
Oh we laughed!
Madden responds, "I don't care if I get presets or have cake... IM STILL GONNA BE SIX TOMORROW!!!!"
So Kyle comes back down the mountain after MORE water line problems for the rink & after just explaining that he had a bloody nose to us all, Madden asks why there's blood...
"Well, there was a wolf up there who punched me in the nose... I got on top of him, though and punched him back... You think this is bad? You should see the wolf now!"
Madden replies, "Cmon, dad. I'm a smart brain. I know there's no such thing as wolves... Right, mom?!"
Right, Madden. Lol
