I Don't Think It's an X, But She Definitely Marked the Spot

Hyrum has started being a wild animal--literally.  He roars and grabs and chases and scares.  And people don't like it.
Yesterday he grabbed Evie in a tight hug, accompanied with his signature growl.
Evie, in turn, bit him as hard as she could on the stomach.  It was HARD.
Hyrum has been hugging her a little more gingerly today.
You know what they say, "Once bit, twice shy."
We'll see.
Linking up late to Jenny Matlock's X on Alphabe-Thursday.

  4. I'm the oldest, and I still have to resort to that sometimes ;)

    Also, tell Micah I really am fine and that I'll come see him when I get home. Apparently Tucker didn't have him convinced on the phone the other day. :)

  6. Here if the answer to "Is there blood?" is negative, it doesn't count as a real injury!

  8. Ah when the natural consequences do the teaching. That's ideal even if it does hurt.

  13. Uh-oh!
    Hyrum seems semi-proud showing it off.

  14. It seems a shame to say "NO hugging!" but "No biting!" is quite in order, I think!

  20. Poor Hyrum - the stoic look on his face says it all.

  21. It sounds like Hyrum has that recessive 'Lenny' gene expressing itself.

  22. Youch! That's one he'll remember for awhile.

  23. Oh my goodness. Sounds like my two kids!

  24. Oh that biting. I had one child and one grand who was a biter.

    I had to laugh about your daughter protecting herself.

    Good for her.

    But I don't envy you the drama!

    Thanks for an xcellent stop this week.

    A+ and my apologies for the lateness of my visit this week.
