Tim has been working outside getting some projects done before winter and Eli loves to help him so they've spent a lot of time together lately. Tim reported to me the other day that while they were out working together, Eli asked him if we (Tim and I) ever fight.
I just smiled when Tim told me. We don't fight much, and that makes me happy.
Cue hair cutting night when I had called to Tim for a little assistance, and apparently he didn't hear me, but either way, I was starting to get irritated with the lack of assistance. Cutting hair is hard enough, but I needed some help to get them all herded into the shower before they covered the house in hair trimmings.
Eventually Tim wandered out to the living room and sat down on the couch to watch me cut Jesse's hair. Tim said something and I snapped at him. I don't even recall what was said. However, my Noah with his smarty-mouth and without even looking up from what he was doing said, "Why are you yelling at your one true love?" with the slightest smirk.
Me, with my smarty mouth and bad attitude said, "Because I asked my 'one true love' for help and he's not helping me!"
Tim promptly got up and said, "What do you want me to do?" and he smiled to keep from laughing. I laughed and told him how he could help.
