“What the heck are you guys doing?”

“We are COWBOYS!”

“HI MOMMY! HI MOMMY! HI MOMMY!”

“So why are you grabbing your crotches?”

“I’m not. I am breaking this horse. He’s a wild one. I had to get him with my lasso.”

“COWBOYZZ!”

“Wait, what horse?”

“The horse I am riding. We are both riding horses.”

“RIDEA HORSE!”

“I don’t understand, where’s the—ohhhhhh. Ah, okay. Well, those are some very, very tiny horses.”

“But they are wild.”

“A BABY! BABY HORSE!”

If only we could bottle the imagination (and unending energy) of little boys…we’d be gajillionaires…or addicts…

OMFG they are so cute. Looking at them I just can’t imagine that you ever have the desire to flip them off behind their backs. Which I did when my kid was two ALL THE TIME.

They will love you for this in about 10 years.

This post made me want sons really, really bad.

Well, you know, kind of. These tiny horses (HORSE!) might be a wee-ish bit embarrassing in, say, CHURCH.

Before I got to the end and saw the picture, I was quite sure that Riley was going to be riding Dylan :)

I am still cracking up. They definitely look like they need to pee, but then you see the tiny little horse legs poking through…

Oh that is going in the lockbox to bring out at a random time so DF will give me the weirdest look and ask what I’m smoking. HILARIOUS!

Just wait until they figure out how to make those tiny “horses” grow! They won’t ever leave the bathroom! (I know- I live it- my boys are 12 and 14)

wow, total html fail. I knew I shouldn’t have skipped coffee today.
Anyway, cute pic, funny post. Enjoy the cabin fever. I don’t even have small kids, and I’m desperate for the Seattle Winter Gray to disperse.

I love that you asked why they were holding their crotches. Hysterical.

Awesome. I don’t have a crotch-grabber on my hands, but my son has his quirks. He has a Barbie Princess book that he loves to read, and we were talking about it one night. . .

“Do you like the princesses, Dylan?”
“Yeah, I love princesses!”
“Why do you like them?”
“I want to kiss their bellies!”
“Uh. . . where are their bellies?”

Which is when he took the book from me and pointed squarely to the ample bosoms of the two princesses pictured on the cover.

Ah, to be a kid again when every day involved leaping around like a kangaroo. If someone could bottle that into an energy drink, I could use a case. (And also the screaming. I sometimes envy kids their ability to let fly with a loud happy yell or screech…adults aren’t allowed to do that.)

So, if we’d had that 4th child, and he’d been a he, then I’d be dealing with this now, instead of just the one running around like a banshee and sounding like a herd of horses all on his own.

Some days, I’m very sad that this will never happen.

your boys are seriously the cutest little boys EVER. Dylan’s hair looks like it is lightening into a beautiful blonde color. I won’t lie, as a redhead myself I am a little sad haha.
