Theres nothing like cosleeping

There is nothing like not having any room, the snoring, the farts, and kids everywhere in your bed. Don't get me wrong I love cosleeping most of the time but there is nothing like a romantic night with your husband with 2 kids in your bed. Its hard to get frisky to say the least. We have Jax at the bottom of the bed and Hudson between us, a few weeks back Jax was between us. It was late at night and we were up late watching a movie. I had said something smart to Isreal and he says, "don't make me spank you", before I was even able to say anything Jax pops his head up and goes, "who me???" 

This kid was in a dead sleep, he hears the word "spank" and it apparently triggers something. We started laughing and I said "yes if you don't go back to bed"

When we want to watch something in bed and the kids are still awake we usually give them the iphone or kindle to watch their shows on while we watch ours.

One night Jax was laying in his usual position at the end of the bed facing us with the iphone, we were watching The Walking Dead which if you don't know its about zombies. At a commercial break Jax goes, "wow that was a scary part", I said "what??" well apparently he had watched the whole show using the iphone turned off so he was watching the reflection through the black screen. I almost freaked, I was surprised he didn't have nightmares that night!!!

kids say the darndest things at the darndest times

As we left Jaxson's school the other day we chatted about his day, he talked about his friends, what they did in class and as we passed by some houses there sat an elderly woman on the stairs. She must have been 5 feet from us when we walked by to get to our car. As we were passing her Jax asks loudly" why doesn't she have her teeth yet?"

I scurried him along as fast as I could not making eye contact with the elderly woman. I just whispered, "she had her teeth but she didn't brush so they fell out, that's what will happen to you if you don't brush your teeth". He just looked at me and said, "I better go home and brush, I don't want my teeth to fall out". He continued on about how the woman eats and chews gum without teeth.

I don't know how kids say the darndest things at the least moment you want them too because I know she heard him, it probably wasn't as bad as when Kailey asked me why that man was so fat as we stood in line at the grocery store, at least this time we could quickly escape, but with Kailey we were stuck in line with the "fat man" in front of us, no where to turn.........
