you try to raise them to be upstanding citizens and what happens?

On Thursday afternoons Mr. M leaves work early and goes swimming with the boys. They love going with him but although they usually get along fairly well, there are times when things get a bit out of control and Mr. M comes back pretty frazzled. Yesterday was interesting.

Mr: Boy9 practiced creative anger management today.

Me: (Turning to Boy9) Oh, really? Tell me all about it.

Boy9: Well, when we were getting changed after swimming, Boy12 made me really, really mad. But I didn't hit him.

Me: That's good. You know I don't like it when you hit each other all the time. What did you do instead?

Boy9: I rubbed my underpants in his face!


(I'm off to bed at a reasonable hour this evening to get into practice for back-to-school on Monday morning. Bleh.)

As they say, "Boys will be boys!"

I've been thoroughly enjoying your posts of the last few days, Christina. I'm guessing 15 years really is a long time to be an expat, so my best wishes go out to you this year for being able to follow your dreams.

Haha - That one made me laugh. Way to go Boy9, creative thinking there and what a way to get back at the big brother. Yes We'd like to know if boy9 got hit back for doing so?

Boy12, in a remarkable display of self-control, claims to have NOT his his little brother back. I am truly amazed.
