Battle of...Wits? Pot Pie wins!

Being a household with two working parents, I often feel like there is this unspoken checklist of home responsibilities between us. Sundays are always busy days at our house, especially during the school semester. I am currently finishing my senior year of college through online courses, and the majority of my homework is due by Sunday at midnight. This past Sunday, while doing my homework, Jack crawled by and he smelled RIPE! Because I was busy and Clint was relaxing in his recliner, I assumed he would change Jack's diaper. However, Clint has a weak sense of smell, and on Jack's first pass, he didn't say anything. The next time Jack crawled by, I mentioned, "Whoo, Jack is poo-oo-oo-py...". Clint sniffed and shook his head in agreement, but still did not get up...
I stayed where I was because I was obviously doing something very important. I heard Luke, in the living room, state, "Jack is POOOPY!". Apparently the smell was too much for Beau to take, because he got a bottle of Citrus-scented Febreeze and proceeded to spray Jackson down with it. Clint hopped up, grabbed the Febreeze from Beau, and brought Jack into our room to change his diaper. This time, as his scent wafted by, it was the poopy smell with this awful citrusy after smell. Maybe next time, we'll forgo the battle of wits and just change the diaper...

That's my Beau....
Middle child, usually quiet but to the point.
If things need to be done & he thinks they should be done now.... he'll take care of it. His way!
Love to you all!
