Brother For Sale

For Sale
By Shel Silverstein

Brother for sale,
only 50 cents.
Brother for sale,
he's not a big expense.
You can hug him,
you can bug him,
you can buy or rent.
Brother for sale,
only 50 cents.

Notice the paint drizzled all over Mr.
Awesome's clothes. Anyone who knows me,
knows I have a hard time spending money
on clothes. My kids aren't always the best
dressed. So of course Max would have to
ruin his only nice pair of jeans that I
splurged on and a brand new shirt that Joey
bought him just a week ago. This happened
yesterday and the clothes are still soaking
in the sink and they will stay there until
I find something to get the paint out.
Any suggestions??

This is my brand new tile.

Gwen was really upset about
all of this. She asked what we
would do with him and I asked
her what she thought we should
do. She said, "I don't want to
give him away cause he is my
baby brother. Let's just put him
to bed."

Max is so cute! I love his mischievous personality. Does he act more like you or Joey? Sorry I missed you this weekend. Hope you guys had a great Easter!

Tie him up. His arms are too long.

I have so been there. Paint remover works really well on tile. As for the clothes I was never able to find a solution. Glad I'm not the only one with a naughty little boy...

My cell phone was dropped in the toilet! So I don't have any phone numbers right now. So call me at home if you want to do those pictures for my grandparents. Talk to you soon!

Suz, come on, paint or not- he's the cutest little Mr. Awesome! I can always get paint out of clothes if you can take them off right away, run them under water and "scrape" the paint out while it's under the water. But, I usually don't notice I have paint on my until it's too late. Anyway, I miss ya!

Suz, Holy crap! What a silly little boy. Well, there's always the possibility of just using those close as painting clothes. Ha ha. Or you can just dress him like me, keep the paint and don't fret about what people will think or say. Your kids are so cute. Gwenny is a silly goose. So those pics on your jack and jill are really nice. Did you get any money off of them? So tomorrow's your birthday. I'm really just telling you that so I don't forget. Expect a call, unless you're gonna come up here to celebrate. Anywho- Look at you- peek a boo. So I haven't slept all night and I'm a little cooky, SO SUE ME!

**** said...

Oh yeah, so I'm pretty sure you don't know who "****" is. It's your brother, Lukas. Ha ha. Sorry, I need to change my name.
