Have you seen the Will Ferrel/John C Riley movie “Step Brothers”? I sometimes feel like Hubs and I should get bunk beds so our boys will have more room for their activities. From the time we wake up in the morning (and on the weekends, before we’re ready to get out of bed) they are at it. I know they’re just playing – wrestling, nipping, boxing with their little paws. The roll and rumble from one end of the house to the next. They crawl under the coffee table and the bed. The tug on tore up foxes and giraffes! There are quiet whimpers and growls, there are teeth and exposed gums, and inevitably there is a Fiona off to the side barking at them to stop.
They seem to be happiest rumbling right on top of us, as if we didn’t know they were fighting over the same toy. Oh, we have about two dozen different toys for them to play with. Cuddly critters and ropes, squeaky snowmen and knotted monkeys. They never want their own toy, they always want what the other one has.
I think it’s safe to say our boys have become the best of step brothers.
This was around 7 am on Saturday morning. Thanks for letting us sleep in, fellas.
Oh, that great display of teeth? All for show. No dogs were harmed in the taking of these pictures. (great cell phone shots at that!)
Don’t let them fool you, when it’s not a battle royale between them, it’s attack of puppy dog kisses, which I don’t mind at all!
I love my boys!
