Puddle Hunters

Donned in rubber boots, rubber pants, and rubber coats with rubber hoods, Peter and David were ready to go kill some puddles. Before starting our version of Full Rubber Jacket, I sat them down on the steps and told them to give me two thumbs up and shout 'right on!'. As you can see, David thinks his index finger resembles a thumb. I like this picture because it captures David's fascination with his BIG brother. After a minute or so of watching Peter, David was able to give me the thumbs up symbol. I am sure as they get older, Peter will also teach him signs that can be made using other fingers.

Angie was still sick, so Grams & Opa came over and brought chicken soup, just without the soup. Angie stayed in bed as the boys devoured their roasted chickens. I slid a plate of chicken and fries under the door and heard chewing noises, so at least I knew Angie was eating.

After dinner, Opa began making duck noises, which the boys found to be hilarious. Not that that means anything - they also laugh at our plants sometimes - but Opa Duck was pretty funny and the boys enjoyed the show.

As we got ready for bed, Peter informed me that he was now ready to get showers and not baths. I guess the puddle hunting excursion and getting rained on was enough to build his confidence for showering. I told him that was great and that we would try it soon. And, of course, I gave him two thumbs up.
1) What was the best part of your day?
Peter: When I go'ed to the swimming pool and when Grams & Opa come over.
David: When Opa make ducky ducky.

2) What was the worst part of your day?
Peter: When I went to the swimming pool and the lady wanted me to stand and jump in and I didn't want to jump in the pool. But she made me.
David: When I bonk my head - owa, schmowa.

3) What would you like to do tomorrow?
Peter: I want to sing owa-schmowa.
David: Ladder Talk with you.
