A barrel of monkeys

video
Tell me again why we buy toys? Current favorites are cardboard boxes and formula scoops.

These two monkeys of ours can really hit it off, but they are also starting to clash. Owen will stake his claim on a toy, but then big, bad Helen comes along and tells him otherwise. She is not even a year old, yet she is not shy about giving anyone a verbal dressing down. The other day I caught them fighting over a Mega Bloks wagon. They both were tugging at it, and it was rolling back and forth between them, literally a tug-o-war, complete with angry screams. Owen was defensively hollering over the whole matter, and Helen was just plain livid with rage. I want it so GIVE IT TO ME NOW!! They both went to bed, since it was only a few minutes before naptime. Lovely.

I'm loving these video clips you've added, Joyce! Hilarious! There's just something special about seeing siblings make each other laugh. That gut-laughter from Helen made me smile. :) Owen's head throw back was great too.
