Monkey Business

I wish there was someway I could have recorded this conversation or video-taped it so you could get the full effect. You will just have to use your imagination, but if you know my boys it won't be hard.

I sent the big kids in the living room to clean it up. I sat down on the couch to eat my bon-bons (so just kidding, it was the kid's Halloween tootsi rolls), and I hear a ruckus that definitely wasn't of the cleaning up variety. I got up, went into the living room and saw Matt holding Tyler down on a chair. Without asking a question I sent them to my room to get their spanking for not obeying.

Tyler walked by me and said, "Matt was holding me down trying to hypnotize me into a monkey."

Matt: "It was working too."

Tyler: "He was trying to make me into a monkey slave."

Matt: "I need a monkey slave to clean up for me."

Mark and I got to laughing so hard, I was crying. I tried to pull it together and go in and spank them, but when I saw both of them sitting on my bed looking so pitiful I just started laughing again.

I think they have my number.

My two little monkey slaves...
