So, we went to my in-laws yesterday for Sunday afternoon. All of John's brothers and sisters were there too, so that includes Jonni and Erik's cousins too. Jonni and Erik LOVE their cousins. Erik has a cousin that is just a couple of months younger than him, Justice. These two are a volatile mix. The adults were upstairs in the living room, and we had unfortunately lost track of the Dangerous Duo. When we finally thought to go looking for them they had struck again! Grandma has a room downstairs where she paints and draws and suchlike, and hangs her work on the walls. The boys had pulled down several of the pictures, and wreaked merry havoc with them. Well, John and his mom went down to sort out the mess, and gave the little boys much deserved tongue lashings. When they were finished, my son proceeded to pull down another picture and throw it will all his might across the room. John said something like "Erik! You tell grandma you are sorry!" Whereas he told grandma he was sorry. Then John said, "Now give yourself a spanking!" He then proceeded to, with all the strength in his little boy body, spank his grandma. I mean he gave it his all! Put his whole body in it. John and grandma laughed so hard, it was hard to tell him why he should not have done that.

P.S. I would like to thank everyone for not making disparaging remarks about my poetry, but in actuality being extremely kind about the whole thing. Thanks for your tolerance.
