"How to drive your parents crazy - a guide book for all kids" by Harrison and Ella

1.  Ask for toys/candy/computer time non-stop.

2.  Suck on your straw hard enough so it makes noise - then pull it out of the glass and let the drink drip onto the table.

3.  Say you're "SO full" after a meal and then BEG for dessert.

4.  Run around in Costco, or the grocery store, until someone gets hurt.

5.  Talk and giggle at bedtime in your bed.  (Harry and Ella share a room)

6.  Pick at your sister or brother and then run to a parent and tattle.

7.  Leave the door open just enough so the air conditioning or heat pours out.

Hey, didn't my kids just leave that book lying on the bottom step where I wouldn't see it but would totally wipe out on it? Or was that the one they begged me to buy for oh, 3 weeks, and then left outside on the front lawn in the rain after about 5 minutes?

Happy birthday to your boy.
