Getting My Jollies From a Few Silly Boys

As a mother I get several good, hearty laughs each and every day. Especially from those crazy boys of mine. Now, don't get me wrong. My girls are absolutely hilarious, and oh-so-witty. But there is just something about those funny, silly boys and the blatent things they do. Even Magnus gives me a few laughs here and there. And he doesn't even know it :)

One day Andy called me in to come see Bear.... he had set this up to make it look like Bear was really holding Magnus on his shoulders (even though Andy is really behind the wall holding M up ;) It cracked me up!

Look at this kid! I laid him on his stomach for tummy time, came back a few minutes later and saw him like this. Face-planted in the couch. Asleep. Made me laugh. Doesn't that look so uncomfortable?!

Here's this kid thinking he's all that after he found my shoes and click-clacked around in them for at least 1/2 hour. Pretty cute. And pretty funny.

What is it with kids and laundry baskets? This kid will sit and play with an empty laundry basket for over an hour.

This is what happens numerous times a day after I nurse Mr. M. The first time it happened I laughed so loud I startled him and made him cry. His ear will just stick like that until I peel it off his face!

I don't know why I thought this was so funny. Andy put Magnus in the swing at the park and he just looked like he was peeking out of an egg or something. He looked so funny. And he loved the swing. Funny kid.And here we have another uncomfortable sleeping spot. In the bumbo. One minute watching me do the dishes, the next minute, out! So cute.

This was too hilarious. I was doing laundry and when I picked up a pair of Jonah's pants, they were extra heavy and extra jingly. I started emptying pockets and the stuff just kept coming! The kid is obsessed with STUFF. Literally. He finds it on the ground, he sticks it in his pocket. Silly kid.A nice little collection of bottlecaps.... I'll give you one guess what most people drink around here.... ;) Don't worry-these went straight to the trashcan afterwards.
The erasur collection

The random stuff collection

And about 100 sillybandz.

All that stuff in 2 little pockets.

I have no idea where these funny boys get their silliness....

Certainly not this guy:

Hmmmm.... what do you think? Could they be related?

This made me smile...Tyler is my kid who walks around in my heels and Trenton ALWAYS has random items in his pocket. Perhaps it's the ages...Magnus is adorable!!

Not going to lie your boys are seriously too cute. Love the pic of Magnus dead asleep on the couch during tummy time...I wish I could sleep like that (ha ha ha!)
