Mini Tarzan


I sighed when I heard another bang from upstairs. I pushed back my chair and stood to make my way to the top floor. Arwen looked up at me and grinned, knowing what was coming to her brothers. I heard her stand as she got up to follow me.

I quietly walked up the first and second set of stairs. By now I could hear the noise much more clearly. It was obvious they were having a good time.

I grasped the door handle and quickly pushed it open, my mouth wide ready to yell out, "Get in bed!" when it happened.

Vincent plunged from Logan's bed and took flight. His entire body seemed to float as he flew from Logans mattress toward his own. In that moment I pictured a monkey plunging from tree to tree in a forest, just like my own little mini Tarzan. His aim was perfect and as he landed he quickly grabbed the covers and threw them on top of his body before resting back on his pillow.

As mad as I wanted to be at having to tell them to go to nap again, I had to bite my cheek to stop from laughing. It was the funniest thing I've seen all week.
