If You Teach a Child to Tie His Shoes

If you teach a child to tie his shoes, it won't be long before he does this:
 And if he does this to Mario, you can bet that it won't be long before you catch him doing this....

Best, perhaps, not to teach him to tie his shoes.
Long live velcro shoes!  Saving little brothers from torment on a daily basis!

That is just the way of little boys! My son is an only child but when he was little every army man and action figure was tied up...always..never released,lol! I am sure if he had a brother I would have been constantly setting him free!

HA! I love it! And we totally use that type of talk around here. We love the books so we're always saying, even accidentally, "if you ... something," and then the kiddo and I turn around and say something to go with it. ;)
