You know what separates the males from the females?
Dirt, danger, and destruction.

Case in point:
That debris on the floor is what drifted down when, while wrestling/pushing/grabbing each other  simply getting dressed, Wyatt and Tate managed to yank on their curtains and rip the bracket right out of the wall.

The 108 year-old wall that isn't exactly gyp board.

Well, now the boys have the chance to learn some home-repair skills as they spend their afternoon helping Daddy fix the hole in the wall and remount the curtain bracket.

I see they've begun with spackling.

But this will be harder to fix.  (You might have to click on the pic to see it.)  And Wyatt swears he has no idea at all how it came to be there.

You know, because someone else must have carved his initial into the top of his dresser.

We have the evidence.
We have a suspect.
We have opportunity.
And I think we've found the weapon, too.

But the motive?

BOYS! Sometimes it feels like a hurricane has run through the house (and I only have two)!

And that "W" totally just appeared. By the closet gnome named Wally. Honest!

Wait! You mean that we're not supposed to carve on wooden furniture? Not every? Waste of good wood, it you ask me...

And no chewing, either, Squirrel!

Don't under estimate the depravity of the heart♥ One of mine scratched the initials of another into, of all things... a church pew.... Cringe.
