Charlie's view

The other day, the kids and I were outside eating dinner. Well, Charlie and I were eating dinner. Jack and Melody were engaged in their favorite past time. They were bickering over everything. Who could take a bigger bite. Who made the biggest bubbles. Who was better at jumping. (In case you haven't figured this out, Jack was instigating all of this).

Their conversation would basically go something like this;
Jack: Melody, I can take a bigger bite than you.
Melody: No Jack. I take a bigger bite.
Jack: No, Melody, watch.
Melody: NOOOOOOOO I don't want to!
Jack: Mom! Melody's not watching me!
Melody: I don't want to, I don't want to, I don't want to!

You get it...

Charlie, however, was just cracking me up.

He looked from Jack

To Melody
All while calmly eating. It was like he couldn't understand why in the world they wanted to do anything other than eat. I kind of felt the same way.

That sounds just like my house! My boys will bicker over anything! The other day on the way to church they were fighting over which finger was tall man and which one was pointer!! Eli just sits and stares at them when they fight too! Charlie is such a cutie!!
