The grumpies

We've all managed to catch the stomach bug that's going around, and feel yucky, to one degree or another. I won't go into the details, trust me you don't want to know.  Let's just say I woke up from a really bad nightmare yesterday to an even grosser reality.  Now your imagination is working...and it's probably worse than what you're thinking.  'Nuf said.

Today is the second day in a row for the boys to be stuck at home together, feeling not-so-great.  Yesterday, they played nicely, and just generally enjoyed (as much as you can) being sick at home in their pjs.  Today?  Not so much.
We've all three got a case of the grumpies.  Lots of arguments, taunting, and several rounds of tears.  Thankfully they come and go pretty quickly.  

Case in point?  The knock knock joke:

After a minute or two of arguing about who-knows-what...

E: KNOCK... KNOCK!!!! (In the GRUMPIEST voice imaginable.)
N: WHO's THERE??? ( In an even grumpier voice, if you can believe that...
E: Giant lego man.  (Not so grumpy... almost sounding like a normal human...)
N:  Giant lego man who? (Almost said with a smile in his voice...)
E: Giant lego man fell on the floor (as he throws the lego man across the room...)
Both:  Laughing together hysterically.  Go figure.

Like I said, at least the grumpies leave as quickly as they come!

UPDATE:  While writing this, I noticed a very loud lack of fighting coming from the next room.  In fact, I realized that there hadn't been any noise in there for about 30 minutes.  Hmmm..  must investigate.  Want to see what I found?  They were in the cabinet together... quietly playing their handheld games with the door closed.
quiet at last
I couldn't help but laugh and run for the camera.  Boys, even on the days you're driving me crazy, you always manage to make me laugh!  I love you.
