Not Kansas

I came home from work to the following disaster area and thought I'm not in Kansas, anymore. At first glance, it seemed like the normal Peter-David special. Broken cars and mangled animals littered the floor; pillows and covers were ripped off of the bed; several games were scattered about the room. Then something hit me. Holy crap! Is that an upside elephant on the table?!

My first thought was more of a flashback to the movie Twister and the scene where the cow was flying around in the middle of a tornado. Since that particular scene made me laugh my ass off (sorry SPCA), my initial anger was quickly replaced with chuckling, as well as a smidgen of curiosity. As much as I wanted to know which of my two short ones had the brilliant notion of placing elephants down on the table, cock-roach style, they kept quiet. For a change.

Dalia was spending the night, so the twister brothers continued their path of destruction into the living room. Tonight was Angie's turn to cook, so we ordered a pizza. It was great and the animals were relatively quiet after their feeding. Dalia did not mind sleeping in David's bed, who did not mind sleeping with Mama and Papa, who did mind, actually. Probably more Papa than Mama, but she isn't the one getting kicked in the face, is she?

As I tucked Dalia in, I thought of the elephant and hoped that I would not wake up to find Dalia upside down on the table.
1) What was the best part of your day?
Peter: When we go in the zoo and buy the dinosaur that flies - that Fly-o-rex.
David: When I play that with the ball with Dalia and Peter.
Dalia: That we gave us a hug really big. Me and Peter. That and kindergarten, of course.

2) What was the worst part of your day?
Peter: When I just had two pizzas and one just not the crust like Dalia.
David: When I bonk a bonk.
Dalia: That we had to eat very early and I was a little slow.

3) What would you like to do tomorrow?
Peter: To build with sand and maybe make a volcano.
David: When we make the bobono [volcano].
Dalia: Build the volcano.
