A dirty trick

This morning our family was enjoying our coffee, newspaper, and breakfast. While I was trying to read the paper and finish my first cup of coffee, Elsie was in my arms and being a little fussy. Eli was in his bouncy seat. Scott asked me if I would like him to take Elsie to give me a break.

So sweet, or so I thought.

The moment I handed him Elsie, he grinned a very mischievous "Scott grin" and told me that Eli had a really yucky diaper. He said, "I guess you will need to change, since I busy holding Elsie and all." Scott couldn't stop grinning at his own dirty trick, and the entire time Eli was smiling away, obviously proud of the present that awaited me.

These boys are sneaky I tell you! Emily, Elsie, and I will have to get them back!

We always do that to each other. We ask the other to hold Kennedy and as soon the transfer takes place we say "not it.". Oh the joys of dirty diapers:)

Jay just tried to pull the "not it" trick in barnes and noble! His loss! He ended up with poop soaking through his new seersucker shirt and his undershirt! He got what he deserved;)

Allison, I called Scott over to read your last comment so that he could learn from Jay! Ha ha ha! Scott smiled and shook his head as he walked away. I'm sure he could imagine himself with that happening.
