Roommates

Since Annie has been born, we have moved the boys into a room together (we have a 3 bedroom house). I love that my boys are sharing a room. I have so many great childhood memories of sharing a room with my sister, Kristi. As young girls, we would fall asleep every night talking about all life's woes from one girl to another. Bedtime was a great bonding time for us. Because of all the great memories I have, Chris and I try to stay out of the boys room once we have tucked them in (unless we here the infamous, "I'm hurt" cry coming from behind the door). We figure that it is a bonding time for them, and great memories will be made as they talk themselves to sleep each night. Well, I forgot to figure in the fact that boys don't talk. They climb and jump and destroy until they crash. Last night, for example, we put the boys to bed at 8:30, and at about 10:30 I here this crazy amount of ruckus coming from their room.


Chris goes to check on the boys, peeks quietly in their room, and then runs back to our room for the camera. Here is the clip of the video he brings to show me.




The funny thing is, Chris records this, and then as he is leaving the room, I hear him say, "Alright boys, just be careful and you can play for awhile longer. You are being good boys playing together without fighting." (Remember it is 10:30 pm!!)


We will definitely never win parents of the year-- thanks to Chris :).

This is so funny. Isn't it intersting what they will get into expecially when avoiding going to bed.

That is so funny! I have also recently moved my kids into the same room in hopes that they will sleep better. We haven't had anything that exciting happen yet. I'll make sure Zack doesn't see the video though!!!

I went back & read all your posts...can't wait to get home so we can see baby Annie in person :)...she looks so beautiful in the pics you posted. And the boys are absolutely adorable is this video!

Too Funny! I let my boys watch the video and they kept asking to see it again and again. Of course I told them not to get any ideas :)
I'm blaming you if they start to tear their beds apart and slide down the mattress. Or maybe I should blame myself for letting them watch it :)
