Owen's getting funny

A week ago we were stopped at a stop light.  It had been a long day and we were finally going home to get the boys down for naps.  I looked back at Owen as he was giving in to his heavy eyelids.  I asked him if he was tired just to keep him from falling asleep.  He looked up just as a car honked.  With his eyelids half shut he muttered...

"Mom, they beeping you!"

Sure enough...the light was green and I was being honked at.

A few days later we were going to Carter's baseball game.  Carter and Alexis were fighting in the back seat...A NORM these past few weeks...and it's killing me.  I had a busy day of games without Chad so I said to myself, "Amber, pick your battles today.  This one isn't worth it!"  So I kept my mouth shut and let them fight it out.  They quit fighting within a few minutes.  About 20 seconds after they quit fighting Owen comments.

"Mom, you spank their bums?"

To which I laughed and agreed it was a great idea.  Carter's and Alexis' silence was ended with an eruption of laughter.

I think I should pick my battles more often.
