Bwahahahaha. Tap-dancing!

My husband and I were talking abut stuff. Probably new-house stuff. The baby woke up from her nap. We asked one of the boys to entertain the baby in her crib for a few minutes while we finished up. This sounds normal, right? Like something lots of parents do every single day? No drama here, right? Ha!

So, we were sitting there talking when the sounds started. Lots of stomping. And shuffleling. And baby-giggles. And the voices. We stopped talking and started paying attention. We could hear two voices, both boys. Then ... "Bwahahahaha! Tap-dancing is his weakness!"

We looked at each other. The wild noises continued. Add to that an ever increasing range of happy-baby-sounds! At our house, extreme quiet and extreme noise are often signs that something ... interesting ... is happening. We tried to be casual as we off-handedly asked "So. Hmmm. Ummm. What ya doing?" Fearing the answer, yet more frustrated by our inability to deduce the answer ourselves. We were rewarded with an answer we would NEVER have thought of!

"Ron and I are doing a show for Katherine! Ron is the bunny-rabbit! His weakness is tap-dancing!" I suppose the blank looks on our faces encouraged him. "You know, like Superman's weakness is krytonite? So I was leaning over, luring the bunny-rabbit onto my flat-back, and then ... TAPDANCING!" He demonstrated that last part. Bending over so his head was near his knees, and then suddenly exploding in a fit of stomping and twitching. I thought I'd fall over laughing!

And, yes, he talks in exclamation points. What would you expect from a boy that can imagine tap-dancing as a weapon?


Lucy, I couldn't resist. Your son is QOTD! *giggle*

He's in good company. I just LOVE that part of your blog! You know all the best quotes.

I won't be telling him that he's been honored, because ... well ... he doesn't know I blog. I figure to let them see it when they're about, um, 40.

Hahahahaha! My boys constanly speak in exclamation points. What other way is there for boys to talk?

This is understandable that cash makes us independent. But what to do when someone doesn't have money? The only one way is to get the personal loans or just secured loan.
