This was taken a week or two ago…right before Christmas…hence the adorable Peanuts Christmas shirt Jack is wearing 🙂 I went outside to let the dog pee…and as I usually do in this freezing cold, I left the boys inside (door unlocked ALWAYS since I learned the hard way TWICE when Jack was younger)…well, when I came inside, Jack ran away and hid. I knew something was up. When I found him he was holding a pen. Of course I immediately noticed the lovely tattoo Jack gave himself on his forehead. No harm no fowl. Usual Jack stuff. At least he didn’t write on the walls right? Thats when it really s*cks. When there is permanent Sharpie marker on the couch, or rug, or wood furniture. Yeah, thats when mom gets a little upset. And even still I’m pretty calm cool and collected….so a little pen on the forehead doesn’t make me more than hide a little giggle. And then I walked into the living room and saw Ben…smiling…with pen all over his face. First instinct “Jackson Robert what did you do?!!?!?!” and then again I had to hide my smile and motherly pride of their first brotherly trouble making. And yes, we know, Ben had NOTHING to do with it. But the little devil had a sneaky grin on that cute little face of his like he really KNEW what rascals they had been. Notice the pen Jack is STILL holding in his hands. And Ben cuddling up to his big bro. Never thought these types of things would make me beam with pride for my two boys. Talk to me in 10 years. I’m sure it will be QUITE another story! But for now, a little pen tattoo never hurt anyone…
