de·fi·ant

dɪˈfaɪənt/
–adjective characterized by defiance; boldly resistant or challenging: a defiant attitude.

Please tell me that there is some saying out there that says a defiant sons becomes the president or SOMETHING good!

Another call from the school today and another shot for me to refrain from laughing.
Today Josiah's teacher nicely announced that the classroom pencil sharpener was broken so be extra gentle to her pencils. Well to a child that "boldly resist and challenges" others Josiah then preceeded to break the tip of every pencil in the classroom.

Ahh the joys of mother hood. Last night I thought about writing a sweet little post about being a mom of boys and how truly wonderful it is. For instance I got to buy a bigger purse because Josiah's gameboy case didn't fit in my current one, or the fact that I have had hotwheels & lego's in every purse or pocket I've ever owned for the last 12 years. And I always have a fruit snack on hand. Today the joys of boys included phone calls from the schools "Turn Around Center" and the will power not to laugh. I did however manage to laugh with a few coworkers who found the story highly amusing.
What can I say, he's a Lewis through and through. Some day I will look back on this miss those phone calls... someday.


Don't worry, he got punished he missed morning recess making up work that he missed being sent to the office & lunchtime recess to resharpen all the pencils. Hopefully he learned his lesson. hopefully.

Ahh, kids... This is when I laugh with the joys of being an aunt and not a parent.

well.well.well.... Now you know what I have gone through... I think Gunnar did something like that once. Enjoy these times, as frustrating as it get, they grow up way to fast! BTW at least you are not stepping on the "little green army men" in the middle of the night! Buying a bigger purse is a nice plus!
