The Viking Facelift

Never shove a viking in the face. Especially if you're a pirate. Even more so if you are only two years old. If you're handcuffed on top of everything, you're just insanse.

Tom had his first bath today if you can really call it that. It was a big tub full of milk and olive oil. Are we trying to clean him or marinate him?

Today I tried to help Angie while she was giving Tom his 'I'm a new baby' medicine. I held his hands and feet and her only task was to shove the tiny spoon into his open mouth. When she stumbled for too long, I questioned her previous work experience at a nursing home. 'Bigger mouths' was Angie's short and sweet response.

Rob the viking stopped by today and entertained the kids for hours. In addition to being handcuffed, David was also hooked, macheted and tickled. He also somehow conned Rob into reading every book they own.

When Rob was done with the boys, I took them to bed for an easy out. Rob stayed with Angie and got her addicted to Facebook. Thanks, Rob - I always wanted a social-networking junkie in the house.

It actually started when Rob logged on to Facebook and was explaining it to Angie. I came in and mentioned to Angie that she had an account. Despite many, many failed attempts over the years, Angie decided yet again to argue with me. I then logged on to her account, which was still active, despite the fact that it has not been used since being created over a year ago.

The first screen that came up informed Angie that she had two friends. The only noise in the room was me cracking up at how comical Angie's jaw-dropping exercise was. Next came Rob, who simply started laughing and pointing fingers at Angie and her two friends.

Never tell Angie that she has only two friends. Especially if those two friends have waited over a year to have their friendship requests answered. Even more so if this information is discovered on the losing end of a bet with your sexy husband. If you actually set up the account over a year ago but forgot to tell your lovely and hopefully forgiving wife and then openly admit this, you're insane.

2) What was the worst part of your day?
Peter: When I slipped in the bathroom and hurt my...it's like a knee on your arm...yeah, the elbow.
David: When Christoph bite me in my hair.

3) What would you like to do tomorrow?
Peter: To see the surprise that is Mama's surprise.
David: When I can go to the swimming pool mit my family, even Tom.
