Where did my kids go?

I posted this morning about how thoughtful Michael was this morning. I now firmly believe that my children have been replaced by space aliens.

- While I was on the phone this afternoon, Michael walked up and just stood there with his hand up. When I got to a stopping point, I went on mute and he asked me a question. I thanked him immediately for not interrupting and holding his hand up to ask a question.

- A few minutes later, Matthew did the same thing. Are they learning this at school?

- I noticed some Cheerios on the floor and asked who spilled cereal. Matthew immediately said it was him. I said it needed to be cleaned up and he gave me a snappy "Yes Ma'am!". They have both been saying "Yes Ma'am" all day. It gets more consistent each day. Thank God for Tae Kwon Do.

Really - are these my kids? I need to come back and read this on those days where they are driving me up the walls and I'm ready to curl up into a ball in frustration. *laugh*

My husband should be home soon. YAY!

My boys aren't twins, they're almost 2 years apart to the day. But because the oldest one has some social/mental issues, they are about the same maturity level/social skills level.

I'm not sure where your boys learned this, but can I send mine??

You mean I'll get my sanity back too eventually??? Yeehaw!

Today is one of my "days where they are driving me up the walls and I'm ready to curl up into a ball in frustration". I still have 3 more days before Daddy comes home to give me some relief. Next time he is stuck in Texas for 8 days, I'm pulling the kids out of preschool and going with him - at least then I could maybe talk you into driving to where he is *grin*. He is in Longview this week on a job (Sunday to Sunday, yes, into the holiday weekend).
