The other day E asked me how to spell 'quiet'. Then L asked me how to spell 'keep'. Aside from the fact that he knows how to spell keep, I was beginning to wonder what was up. Why were the two boys taking time out of their busy play outside to sit quietly and write? If you are a mom of 10 and 8 year old boys, you know that is pretty unusual for them to spontaneously write without being asked. It began to make sense when M asked me how to spell 'brothers'. This is what I found when I went down the hall to their bedrooms.
The boys door with many signs.
Love the face!
M's door across the hall.
For those who have a hard time reading 4 year old writing, the sign says "Knock first brothers".
Ah, sibling quarrels. At least these were of the silent variety this time. I'm not sure who first had the idea. I believe it was actually M and the boys decided to counter her "attack" with a few more signs. One of the boys signs reads, "No bargeing in". That is my particular favorite since that is something she is quite fond of doing.
