I'll Be Peace, You Be Quiet

My sister has been here for the last week. She brought with her my 14 year old niece (to leave with me!!!!) her 13 year old son, and 7 month old baby and for part of the week, her husband. We have been piled on top of each other and at any given moment, 27 conversations have been going on at one time. Most of the time one or other of the babies are crying or squawking for his or her mama. And as a general rule, Avee is barking orders at one of her subordinates.

This morning was no exception as my sister and husband were trying to get their car loaded up to leave. A 13 year old distracted by cartoons, a post-nap baby who wanted her mama, Avee in need of a s'mores, etc. The noise escalated quickly and over it all, was a four year old trying to watch Jay Jay the Jet Plane, yelling, "Could I get a PLEASE get a PIECE OF QUIET!?!?!"

At which point, Avee came racing around the corning yelling, "I want a piece of gum toooooooo!"

Bo didn't get his quiet, but Avee did get a gum flavored jellybelly.

Heeeeeee. That's probably my favorite What About Bob? quote. "I'll be peace!"

I think it's funny that he was having a hard time not being able to stay focused on "Jay Jay the Jet Plane." That show (sorry Ben) is a total train wreck. When it's on over here, I totally get sucked in. Aaaaaaahhhhhh!!

P.S. I hope Avee's jelly bean was buttered popcorn-flavored.
