Just hanging

David loves to experience new things. At the zoo today, it was rope burn. I think it ranked right up there with his first 'brain freeze' in terms of being interesting, painful and strangely repeatable. For David, it's more 'once bitten, twice stubborn'.

As of today, I am on half day vacations and half day working from home. Until Nonameyet comes, I will be staying close to home to help Preggy with the kids. Working from home is... well, how should I put this... it's a little like...Get me OUT OF HERE! Send help NOW!

Angie had another checkup today. Our neighbor downstairs watched the boys so I could go with Angie. Angie's normal doctor is on vacation, so we went to his backup. I can only hope that the strategy here was to name a backup that was so kooky that you would never think of switching to him permanently. If so, it worked.

As we left Dr. Weer Doe's office, we took the elevator down. It is a tiny elevator and Angie's belly is, well, not so tiny. By strange luck, the emergency call button is exactly the height where Angie's belly sticks out. Yes, Angie bumped the emergency belly button and called the police, fire department, ambulances, veterinarians and whoever else normally responds to such things. We will never know for sure - we got the hell out of there. For a pregnant woman in her last trimester, Angie can move pretty damn fast when presented with a potentially embarrassing situation.

I am pretty sure that we will be taking the stairs at Angie's next checkup. I know this because, unlike David, Angie is definitely 'once bitten, twice shy'.
1) What was the best part of your day?
Peter: When I went to the zoo and saw the sea lions because I like them.
David: When I tickle go to Mama with helicopter.

2) What was the worst part of your day?
Peter: When Mama cut my nails.
David: My owa on my elbows.

3) What would you like to do tomorrow?
Peter: To play the Hippo Flip.
David: When I go to the helicopter.
