choking, lying, and a different game plan

One evening Dad looks over at the little boys to find Tamu choking Yordy!
"TAMU!! Stop choking him!"
Tamu lets go and says,
"I wasn't choking him, I almost choked him."

While my grandparents were visiting, Maddie gave my grandmother a little angel as a  belated birthday gift. A little while later Elaina walks up to my grandmother and asks what that "thing" was.
"Oh, it is what Maddie gave me for my birthday."
"Oh," Elaina said thoughtfully, "well... um... ya see, we asked her to give that to you from ALL of us."
Yeah.... I told Dad later that she was most definitely HIS daughter. :) To which we fully took responsibility.


One afternoon, Mom, Ms. Pam and I were sitting in the kitchen, when I spotted Tame tip-toeing past the kitchen towards the back with a play tea cup FULL of water.
"What are you doing with that water Tamu?" I asked.
He stopped, pausing for a moment, then started walking towards the table where we were sitting.
"Uh...." He continued walking. "Um... I was just going to..... uh..... set it here!" He set it right in front of me and ran off before I could accuse him of anything different. :)
