It's warm today (in the 30's) so when Arie got home from school I sent him and his brother out to play in the backyard. Unfortunately, to them "playing" meant yelling and screaming viciously at one another until I told them if I saw one more fight going on they'd have to come in.

"But Daddy!" Arie shouted. "We're having fun!"

The "fun" lasted a couple more minutes until Arie screamed at his brother that he was going to punch him hard. Then I brought Arie in and sent him up to his room (loudly complaining about the unfairness of life, the universe and fathers) and left √Čiden outside where he now sits in front of the window crying because the brother who was beating on him is now inside and unable to "play."

God, I love days like this.

They'll remember them as the best of times.

Jeez, don't you know anything? I'm ALWAYS having fun when I threaten to punch someone hard.

Yeah, I know -- the tip-off to how much fun they were having should have been that Arie's face was beet-red and spittle flew from his mouth as he screamed that he was going to punch his brother. I guess I blew it.
