Anyway, something super funny happened last night. I was giving the boys a bath -- I know, exciting, living on the edge! Daring to chance the flood that most likely comes from bathing my boys. My kids are so hard on the water, that it tries very hard to escape the tub.
The boys were covered in dirt, mac-n-cheese, sand, and something green.... I don't want to know! So I put them in the tub for some much needed soak time.
First Nephi pooped.
Not just any poop. One little turd followed by a green cloud. So out came the boys. I made them stand there naked while I fished out the floater and drained the rest with the water. After I refilled it, they jumped back in and played peacefully for a few minutes.
When the splashing started, I broke out the shampoo. Nephi first!
Now, I don't know about you, but rinsing out soapy hair has got to be the biggest drama moment in our house. They HATE it. They squirm and scream and rub the soap in their eyes... just making it worse! So I have this little game I play. They get 3 big cups of water dumped over their head really fast and then it is done and they get a dry washcloth to use on their face.
As I was doing Nephi's, Sammy started making fun of him and laughing hysterically. Which made Nephi cry even more! But when it was Sam's turn to get it, he was way more whinny than Nephi who decided that he was going to laugh louder than Sam had. He just kept laughing and laughing and I thought Sam was going to bean him in the head with a bath toy.
"Nephi!" I said, "Calm down! What's your problem?"
He stopped laughing. Looked me right in the eyes, and my little 2 year old said: "Payback."
First off, where did he learn that!? And second, what a little wise guy to actually know the connotation!
I waited until I left the room to laugh. I didn't want to encourage revenge... but you have to admit, it was pretty darn funny!
