The Barbershop Duet

I'd like to think that it is just strange coincidence that David is wearing the black cape and Peter the white one, but the boys have been to this barbershop before. I'm guessing their last visit made a last-ing impression with the ladies. At least they didn't 'accidentally' shave David's head.

As a treat for not blowing up anything at the barber shop, Peter and David got an ice cream, courtesy of Mama, the goofy snapper in the funny reflection snapping funny pictures of the goofy kids.

It may look like David is wearing shorts, but he is not. He is going through what I can only hope is a short-lived phase of 'discovering' his diaper. Hey, buddy - cool socks, when's the flood?

After two licks of a cone, the boys headed home, where Peter the blockhead showed off how smartie he is.

Nestle is undoubtedly going to wonder tomorrow why their Smarties website suddenly jumped by three additional hits. Feel free to pay me in chocolate.

Today was a discovery round for all three boys. David found his diaper and Peter realized the fun you can have with Jenga blocks, which is actually a drinking game. Tom joined in by discovering himself.

Papa took one look in the mirror and discovered that it was happy hour and began playing the drinking game, just without the wooden blocks. Eventually, I called Angie, who was at a birthday party, and told her to meet us at the Schnitzel Haus. It was here that Angie and I broke the shocking news to Tom that he is, in fact, a Johnson.

Needless to say, Tom did not take it well. On the way home, we tried to snap Tom out of his sudden and unexpected depression by taking a stroll down castle-square.

He continued frowning, but I am wishfully hoping that it is because he is missing a cool blue helmet and not because he is staring off in the distance looking for a new family. He'll be ok, though - the animals at the zoo grow on each other. Eventually.
Ladder Talk:
1) What was the best part of your day?
Peter: When we go to Schnitzel Haus and I ate almost my whole thing.
David: When I go myself in Kindergarten.

2) What was the worst part of your day?
Peter: When David hit my ear with the book.
David: When I played...nothing.

3) What would you like to do tomorrow?
Peter: To go to Opa's party.
David: When I play coal mine with these trains.


  1. You know what Tom needs? Thought bubbles. The picture of him at the Schnitzelhaus screams, "What've I gotten myself into? I never should have left mom's uterus."

  2. Kato: Thought bubbles imply thinking, though, something that Tommy Funnyface does not yet do.

    Regarding Tom's escape from Mom, he actually did not want to leave - the doctor's wanted to spank a baby so badly, they went in and babynapped him.

    I was always wondering whether the word "uterus" would ever show up on the blog - thanks! I'll be looking forward to the weird google searches that will now find the Zoo.
