short and sweet

my weekend with Jason, Phoebe and Verna Mavis went something like this:

AUNT JEN...CAN I HAVE A LOLLIPOP?
AUNT JEN...CAN I HAVE A COOKIE (oreos of course, phoebe is a girl after my own heart)
AUNT JEN...CAN WE PAINT?
AUNT JEN...WHEN ARE WE GOING TO MCDONALD'S PLAYLAND
AUNT JEN...CAN I HAVE A LOLLIPOP?
AUNT JEN...JASON WON'T SHARE
AUNT JEN...WHEN ARE WE GOING TO THE MUSEUM?
AUNT JEN... THE T-REX IS A MEAT-EATER
AUNT JEN...CAN I HAVE A LOLLIPOP?
AUNT JEN...CAN WE WATCH MIFFY?
AUNT JEN... THE T-REX IS THE MEANEST OF ALL DINOSAURS

AUNT JEN...AUNT JEN...AUNT JEN

All of these questions were asked at very high decibels and most every question was answered with a yes, because that's just the kind of Aunt Jen I am.

This is specifically the reason I am glad Avery can only speak a few words, her favorite being 'hi'. When we get to the constant, mom, mom, mom, mom, MOM!!!!! I think I will lose my mind. Well done you though for being a great aunt!

You must be the cool Aunt!

Hey just a note, I have had to have an ANA blood work done. I am having some sort of systemic issue happening that I commented on when you posted about your flare. Gads, who knew. They are considering lupus or rhumeatoid arthritis, or heaven knows what else. My hands have not been functioning well and now I am having some sort of eye issue that the opthamologist is saying is caused by something that is underlying that my body is causing but is not an infection. Oh joy.

Strange things do happen when "Aunt _______" becomes "Mom."

I no longer even think of the summons as an attention-getter. It's more of a habit for them to say, as in:

"Hey Mom. We have a test tomorrow in science."

or

"Hey Mom. I need $15 for our field trip."

or

"Hey Mom. Can you buy me some new Speedos?"

My favorite part is when they all say it at about the same time. That's when I say:

"Hey Boys! Did I tell you the circus called? They want you to come home."

Unlike you, however, I usually tell them "no." I was a better auntie than I am a mom.

Actually, in a rather sweet gesture, when I look at them, all wild-eyed and frazzled, they usually have the good graces to look a little embarrassed, and say:

"Hey Mom. Sorry. He can go first," pointing at another brother.

I love those monkeys.
