I hear your mom calling you

The boys have spent a great deal of time in the last week pretending to play KU football in the basement. The stairs are the locker room and they run down them into the family room yelling, “Here come your Kansas Jayhawks!”

Andrew has mostly been Dezmon Briscoe this week but after last night’s loss, is back to pretending to be Todd Reesing this morning. Thomas, though, is not as fickle.  He’s all Jake Sharp, all the time.  This has made him the subject of much teasing from his brother because Jake has been hurt and hasn’t played in the last few real games, making it hilarious to Andrew that Thomas would choose to be him. Further adding to that hilarity for Andrew is the fact that about 50% of the time, Thomas refers to himself as, “Jake SHARK,” which always prompts a correction from big brother “Todd.”

A few minutes ago, Thomas came flying upstairs and I said, “Hi, Jake. How’s your game today?”  He came to a screeching halt and told me that he couldn’t be Jake right now because Todd – aka Andrew - told him that Jake’s mom called and told him it was time to go home for dinner, so he would now need to be Kerry Meier.

With a brother like that, who needs your own brain?!

I hope Kerry & Todd have a great day AND a super game next weekend. Yes, we tried our best, but we just couldn't catch that ball, either. Darn! Go 'Hawks!
