Bored and Boreder

I don't think it was that David found Tom to be boring. David has been fighting a cold and the medicine had him tuckered out and rubbing his eyes. Tom can be slightly unspectacular, though. Eating, sleeping and shitting, with a little burping and crying may be a cool way for Celine Dion to spend her weekend, but it makes you incredibly dull for those people staring at you. Even here, it appears like Tom is boring the hell out of...well, Tom.

The morning started out with the dishwasher repairman finally coming to fix good ole Angie II. It was not exactly thrilling to watch the repairman dismantle our other baby and flood the kitchen floor, so instead I got Peter ready for kindergarten.

It was his first day back since Tom broke loose, so I printed off a nice picture in case any untrusting teachers thought Peter was playing hooky. When asked later what his classmates thought of the picture, Peter told me 'cool'. Wow, four whole letters. Can't wait to see the poetry and prose they will be reciting next year.

Peter mentioned to me today that it was funny that Mama was no longer a 'Belly Bird'. He then explained - 'it's like Big Bird, and because her belly was so big, it was a Belly Bird. Get it?' Oh, I got it and cracked my ass up. I, along with Angie I'm sure, am really going to miss all the prego cracks, so this one came as an unexpected but very welcome afterjoke.

I spent the rest of the day racing around to stores, pharmacies, kindergartens, and our home trying to get everything ready for Angie's homecoming. By the time I made it back to the hospital to say goodnight to Angie and Tom, got home, fed the kids, tucked them into bed and drank one beer and four bottles of whiskey, I was exhausted. David may have the eye rubbing down pat and Tom might be able to patent that yawn of his, but I definitely had the snoring covered.
Ladder Talk:

Peter: When I played with David and Tom.
David: When I go'ed mit Mama in there.

2) What was the worst part of your day?
Peter: When you went upstairs and I started crying in the car.
David: When I cry 'cause I bonk and fall down.

3) What would you like to do tomorrow?
Peter: To go to Grams & Opa and to see that Carol again.
David: When I go to Grams and Opa and Carol.
