Cat's in the cradle

It's great that the old geezer thinks I'm a kitty and that he can cradle me like a sack of flour, but where the hell is my silver spoon?

David woke up this morning astounded that Mama has TWO boobs. Tom had just finished eating and Angie was 'airing out' when David came barging in. He did a double-take at Mama's double-barrels and shouted 'Hey Mama, you have two booooooobbbbbiiiiieeeessss!!' I am sure the neighbors cracked up along with me. Not surprisingly, Angie did not join our laughing circle.

Silly Pop-Pop thought he might gain a little jet-lag sympathy, but our boys do not understand things like time zones and jet lag. They think that people who sleep until noon are funny and they find it funny to jump on people who sleep until noon. It turns out that they were right for a change - it was hilarious.

Waking a sleeping dragon will normally result in a lot of spit and fire. If cursing and indigestion count, then Pop-Pop the Magic Dragon did just fine. We picked up Puff at the hotel and forced him to watch Peter and David perform amazing tricks at the playground like going down slides and swinging.

Time flies when you are nursing a jetlagover and before the boys could check if Pop-Pop's mustache was real, it was time for the sailor man to pull out of port. This is a fancy way of stating that Pop-Pop was flooding with affection and needed to anchor out to avoid eye drowning.

Tom was extremely sad to see Pop-Pop go. Sad, in this context, involves a lot of giggling and sticking his tongue out, and not necessarily in that order. I truly think that if Tom had been given that silver spoon, Pop-Pop might have had a harder time getting through the metal detector.
Ladder Talk:
1) What was the best part of your day?
Peter: When I go'ed with Ice-Pop to the playground.
David: When I see Pop-Pop, your Papa.

2) What was the worst part of your day?
Peter: When I couldn't see Ice-Pop anymore.
David: When Christoph bite me.

3) What would you like to do tomorrow?
Peter: To play with you, David and Mama with that game from Ice-Pop with these chips and the cards.
David: When I go mit you to see hippo.
