"FINE!" they both sing out in unison [a sure sign they're not quite telling the whole truth].
"Did anyone get in trouble today?" I prod.
"NO!" he says. "YES!" she counters.
"What happended, Santiago?"
"For..." I coax.
"For not listening," he continues.
"To..." I add.
"To the teachers when they asked me to stop," he concludes.
"Stop what?" I ask dreading, always dreading, the answer.
"Stop making everyone laugh when I tell them I can burp my ABCs," he says giggling.
"Where in the world did you get that from?!?!" I demand.
"From Hami in Over the Hedge," they reply, both barely able to contain their laughter at the apparently fond and furiously funny recollection.
"No," he says. "I mean, yes," he stumbles, "but, Mom," he goes on, "everyone really laughed when I said diaper."
[and they erupt into uncontrollable hysterics]
Obviously, they got their sense of humor from their other Mommy!!!
