As Tee is about to get a reminder for being under Ollie’s crib during nap and playing peek-a-boo, I asked him:

Me: “Tee, why have you not obeyed Mommy and rested quietly in your bed?”

Tee (with a very serious face, standing right in front of me): “Mommy, it’s how I love my brothers.  I play peek-a-boo and I get Catchel Keese Keese and Ber Ber when Ollie drops them and get his blanket if he throws it out and I’m just busy in there.  (long pause)  I just love my brothers.”

I had to literally pinch my cheeks with my fingers like a fish to keep from laughing and stay in the discipline moment.  So Tee, still serious, started pinching his cheeks just like me.  Needless to say, he got only a warning…there was just too much going on in that head of his.

Love that boy.
