Superheroes and Suds?

I was fairly surprised tonight when I went in to check on the boys in the bath to find this scene....

Really? With library comics none the less. I do have to say that so far this blog has had a positive effect on me as in the past I would have gotten mad at them for potentially ruining comics, instead I thought I had better grab the camera. Guess this old dog did learn a new trick today.

Blobby arms and Foodtensils

Here it goes, first blog. I thought I'd share Declan's quotes of the week. Declan's job during supper prep is to set out the utensils. As he was grabbing the forks out of the drawer he says "are we using all the foodtensils tonight or do we just need forks?" In those moments it's hard to keep a straight face and not laugh. As I corrected him I thought that really they should be foodtensils, it does make more sense.

The second story also occured at supper as we were convincing our strapping 35lbs 4 year old that he needs to eat more, especially food with protein in order to develop healthy muscles. He then flexes his arm and informs us that he is doing just fine. Hudson also flexes as Declan walks over and grabs his bicep to compare and then says " Hudson all you have is blob". I couldn't help but burst out laughing and Aaron and I couldn't stop at poor Hudson's expense. Although the lesson may have been lost on Declan perhaps it will help Hudson to increase his protein intake.
