      LOL Oh, my gosh, mine are! The part where they steal the nice chair & the guy ends up sitting on an uncomfortable folding one…ALL THE TIME! And every time I’m on the phone, they sudden need something of the right now, cry as loud as they can, begin destruction sequence in 3, 2, 1 variety! img28

      I swear they’re just like kids! img26
