So last Saturday (I know I'm playing catch up) we wake up and the boys are arguing so I figure lets go to my mom & dad's and let them run and maybe put them to work. So we get there get them in painting clothes and they go outside and paint boards for the laundry room. My mom makes a smiley face on a spare big board and Ethan my oldest and Tyler my middle who is 7 ask to make the guy into Uncle Ben. Of course she says and they draw him with a hammer and glasses and just make him the coolest stick figure ever. They even get him to show him their fine art and everything is great. Until we turn our backs and Tyler finds a nice piece of plastic pipe and feels that it needs to be added as an extra limb now making the figure with a 3 dimensional attachment in....well you know where he added this thing! So they get banned from painting and we went home to do hair cuts and PJ's because of their outburst earlier in the day. I figure we are home well I'll wash sheets not biggie throw everything off my bed little did I know that would cause a crazy assumption made by none other than Ethan. Its about dinner time and my bf comes over to hang out and all of us play outside and bake cookies things that are considered "normal". ........until Ethan walks into my room see the sheets off and comes out and says "Mommy, did your bf come over and you two roll around in there and do the dirty?" all while flinging his arms in the motion where you pretend to be making out with yourself. Of course the honest answer is NO! Which now not only is this the second time he has met my kids it is now the second time we have had a random awkward situation!! Of course I laugh because I never saw that one coming then again I guess you never do either. I said ugh no considering I've been with you boys all day and where did you hear that from. Ethan then tries to say I taught him that! Throwing me under the bus...not cool especially since he for sure never learned that from me. The night goes on I tell him to think about where he heard that because we need to keep our communication more open and he is learning more than what I think he should for his age (maybe I'm wrong). Next morning over a delicious cinnamon roll breakfast I ask where he learned that from. I get "It's none of your business!". Seriously?!?!? None of my business of I swear. I know it's the playground because he isn't around anyone else that I can think of that would even be talking or be curious about that kinda stuff. What do I do ban him from the playground...tell him he isn't allowed to even look or think about a girl till he's 40. Oh boy he's the first of 3 and hopefully by the second time I get to the 9 year old age group I'll be much more equipped to handle this random questioning and have sharpened up my interrogation skills!!
