The Great Gummi War
Leave it to a dad to devise the most incredibly random, off-the-wall activities for children. I leave the kids in David's hands for half an hour to take a bath, and when I emerge from my restful, relaxing cocoon of steam and bubbles, I step right into the middle of a raging battle. The thundering feet of Isaac nearly trample me as he races by, arm cocked to fire. His ammunition? A bag of gummis. Apparently David thought it would be a great idea to let the kids chase each other around the house throwing bags of gummis at each other. Even Adam, his little legs going a mile a minute, ran by with his beloved gummis in hand ready to attack. This melee went on for an HOUR. Apparently gummis are as good for throwing as they are for eating. Granted the kids had a great time, but really, David? [rolling eyes]. No wonder the kids all like daddy better...he lets them run amok any 'ol time.
