06.27.08 changes

I am noticing some changes of behavior from the boys and frankly, I don't like it.

Ryan has gotten very sassy. He has a retort for every comment and his tone his just, ugh, I wanna smack him. I guess this is normal behavior for his age but I wasn't expecting it and I don't know how to curb it. If I raise my voice, Andy gets upset. And speaking of Andy, if I reprimand him, even without me getting upset, he does. He acts like I have just done the worst thing possible to him and then I have to spend 15-20 minutes consoling him.

Damn prepubescence.
