Don't try this at home

Peter was running around the house today screaming off-key cartoon songs at the top of his lungs. In an effort to shut the boy up for two minutes, I told him to go lick his elbow. For most normal humans, this is not possible. Peter is anything but normal and today he used his disproportionate arms and tongue to prove this point. Next time, I will simply tell him to go whistle.

You will notice a missing entry for yesterday. This was my first day back to work after several weeks off and Angie's first day home with three kids and a cat. I don't know who made out better, but I can certainly tell you who made out quieter.

Rob stopped by, which is great because he has a beard. The kids are fascinated by beards and somehow much quieter whenever bearded people are around. Of course Angie and I like Rob for a number of other reasons, but his hairy face's ability to mute our children definitely tops my list.

The theme lately has been loud. Tom is already proving that he is not one to easily be outdone. I think he feels a need to compete with Peter and David, but he sleeps too often during the day to even come close. He compensates for this lost loud time by waking up every two hours at night to scream. His plan does not work, though, since his screaming fits normally wake up Peter and David, who also begin crying. At 4 o'clock in the morning, I confirmed my suspicions that screaming at them to go lick their elbows does not work.
Ladder Talk:
1) What was the best part of your day?
Peter: When I played with Mara in the sun group from my kindergarten.
David: When Rob come by to play mit me.

2) What was the worst part of your day?
Peter: When it's getting shorter and shorter and shorter by the days.
David: When Tom cry so loud, owa on my ears.

3) What would you like to do tomorrow?
Peter: To play with David and show him my kindergarten.
David: When I go swimming mit you.
