Show offs.

January 17, 2013


I was sending a text last night and as I stood at the top of the stairs, forehead scrunched up and trying to see my tiny little phone screen, out of the corner of my eye – Ralph was showing off again. He was walking the balcony like a tightrope. I tried to very cautiously go downstairs to get the camera.

I did get one shot on the way back up …


… but then he jumped down. I stood around and pretended to text some more, and sure enough – he tried to get up again, but fumbled it.


Emme, though? No problem for a tiny, evil tightrope walker:

It’s a fairly high drop, considering the stairs. Those daredevils.

    Tell the truth now… Are you training them to burgle? Ha! I like that word… burgle. Burgle. Burgle. Hehehe…

    I think it’s time for me to go to bed.

    Yes, it’s much quicker to walk the rail to get to the bathroom rather than walk completely around it. I should learn to do that.

    Poor Ralph, I dont’ think he fumbled on his own. Are those rays coming out from Emme’s eyes….or can she do that just with her mind?

    Emme showed him how to do it!

    I worry that he will fall the other way. 🙁
