Dinner Is Never Boring at Our House!

What an eventful dinner we had last night :)

But first some background: Yesterday, Jen, our nanny, took the kids to McDonald’s for lunch and to play in the play area. Apparently, some boy that Kylie was playing with gave her an Indian burn. She’d never had one before and didn’t know what they were, so Jen explained it to her and they were talking about them the rest of the day.

At dinner last night, Ryan was being fussy, so I took him upstairs to get him ready for bed. While I was up there, I heard John and the kids start yelling and Kylie start crying (her fake cry).

I went downstairs and found Joshie yelling at the top of his lungs “it did hurt her, she’s her own body.” John kept telling Joshie it didn’t hurt her – she was faking it. And Joshie kept repeating “she’s her own body.” I was cracking up! What Joshie was trying to tell him was that John can’t tell Kylie whether he hurt her or not, she knows what she feels…I wonder where he gets that from ;)

So apparently, John and Kylie had gotten into a little fist fight. They were going back and forth and Kylie really clobbered him, so he put both hands on her arm pretending he was going to give her an Indian burn. She didn’t want that, so she started her fake crying and telling him he hurt her.

Unfortunately by the time I got the video camera out the real fire had died down, but I desperately wanted to get Joshie fiercely defending his sister on video, so John was trying as hard as he could to egg him on, and it worked a little, but he never repeated “she’s her own body” which is what I really wanted to get (you can hear John trying to get him to say it).

Please note that by this time the real issue was over and done with (you will even hear and see Kylie laughing)…John is just trying to help me capture the moment on video. And take a look at the vein on Joshie’s neck that’s ready to pop when he’s getting really angry!
