Don’t even ask where I ran the cord from

The boys are engaged in an ongoing battle of one-upmanship. Whatever one can do, the other can do better.

A snippet of conversation from today:

Tristan: “Yeah, well, I know more Pokémon characters than you do!”

Simon: “No you don’t!”

Tristan: “Yes I do!”

**fast forward through six rounds of “No you don’t!”/”Yes I do!”**

Simon: “I’ve been watching Pokémon longer than you!”

Tristan: “No you haven’t. I’m older, I’ve been watching Pokémon longer than you!”

Simon: “No you haven’t. I’ve been watching Pokémon since I was in mommy’s belly!”

Beloved, after the laughter of grownups subsides: “Sheesh, you didn’t tell me you had cable in there. No wonder they were all so reluctant to come out!”

That was just funny. My daughter does the same with a cousin. Sometimes they can argue about the most useless stuff. Nobody wants to lose. Happy new year to you and your family!

Someone has to say it: you’ve got a womb with a view.

I’ve heard of playing Mozart next to your swollen belly, but wasn’t familiar with the benefits to siddleing up next to an episode of Pokémon!
