A Little Update

What are the kids up to these days?
They've spent some time working on their British accent. The phrase of choice is "indulgent nonsense." Obviously, Simon Cowell is their inspiration.
If you haven't seen Connor lately, here's all you need to know: Connor is right and you are wrong. That is the essence of any conversation you might have with him. We are trying to explain the concept of "backtalk" and why it is inappropriate, but he just talks back when we do. Also, he says this a lot: "But I was just. . ." As in, "But I was just playing with the lightsaber near her face, I wasn't trying to hit her in the nose with it!"

The kids are also really interested in these YouTube videos of a beatboxing Japanese guy. They work on their beatboxing even more than their British accents. Or, as Chloe calls it, their "spit singing."
Chloe is kind of a butt these days. She will accept any punishment you dole out, because it's worth it to be able to do what she wants to do. She also grunts a lot, and for the past week or so has been glued to my side. She loves me again! (File under: be careful what you wish for.)
Aren't these the best pictures ever?

Charlie's a butt, too, right now. In fact, he's been one for the past year or so. Should I be worried the he's started the back-talking at the age of 3 rather than 5?

Great pics!
