Remember my meeting with Happy Momma? My sweet hubby made friends with their younger daughter...gaining her trust as he encouraged her to jump off their cofee table into his arms.
And so...we received the following email Friday:
This morning my mommy was changing my brother's diaper on his floor. I stood over him and said "wooon, twoooooo" and then I fell forward. On top of him. My mommy didn't think I would do it, either that or she thought to slow while I was counting. Either way, I'm quite sure my mommy said your name in a less than Christ like tone. I look forward to seeing what you teach me when we come this summer. Mommy has a few tricks up her sleeves to teach Ella and Evan.

So Hubby wrote back to the little Monkey:
Dear Grasshopper (Monkey),
You have learned well, excellent job! Don't worry about little brothers too much, they are highly resilient. Now, in order to really push Momma over the edge, I think you should try a few other "classic" kid maneuvers. Start out with something simple, like running with scissors for example. When you feel comfortable with that one, we'll move on to more advanced techniques like the ever popular, sticking a key in a wall outlet. If your parents are too sneaky for that one and have installed those pesky childproof outlet covers, then we'll have to go straight to the highest level of child mischief: turning on the garbage disposal while the cat's tail is in there. Anyway hope you have lots of fun!
P.S. Be sure to pass along this knowledge to your little brother one day.
