Thumbs and thumbing


So we have arrived at the war of the thumbs something has been brewing in our home for the past several months and while it seems silly we are now on the brink of childhood nuclear war. There are also may quotes about thumbs showing that many times we have insulted with out thumbs in Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet at the very beginning when they are having a street brawl one of the insults traded is "do you bite your thumb at me sir? Yes I bite my thumb at you sir" and it continues spiraling the same insult around.

In the absence of any other proof, the thumb alone would convince me of God's existence.

Well my children have started the thumbs up thumbs down war. Silly right well to my children getting a thumbs down is the end of the world and of course being children throw it at each other on a whim. Today has been especially bad so with screaming, tantrums and emotional children I would like to let everyone know that I have no clue where my two picked this up or created such an insult. No matter what Hubby and I do we have not been able to get our children to stop this titanic war of theirs. Our new resolve is to ignore any further thumbing here is crossing the rest of our digits hoping it helps. I love children especially my children but today that love is being tested they seem to be bouncing on my very last nerve. To top it all off after spending the whole day fighting, yelling and screaming my son lays down sweetly like an angel to take a nap!! AHHHHHHH

Just in case any one was wondering I think I am going insane lets just hope that my book sells. I am about as far as I can take it on my own and I am starting the long road to getting it published. This year may very well be the strangest year of my life.
