What did you call me?

Peter's got a girlfriend, Peter's got a girlfriend. Oooohh - aren't you going to kiss the phone?

Ok, sometimes I have to remember that I am the adult. I just can't believe how early it starts now with the phone calls. I don't mind, though. I am keeping a running total of all the phone calls and will present Mr. Chit Chat with the bill in twenty years. Oh yeah, with interest. I am doing the same with David and the costs of diapers and everything he has destroyed. I am going to be so rich. They may hate me when I present them the bill, but I will be so stinking, filthy rich, they will need to be nice to me. And people say logic is one of my weak points - ha.

Angie took the boys to the river today. Along the way, Peter all but tackled another little boy who was wearing the same hat that David had and somehow lost last week.

'Hey! Give me that hat! That's my BROTHER'S!'

'Uh, no. This is my hat'

'No, I know that hat. My BROTHER has that hat and can't find it and there it is.
Give it to me. Now!'


What Peter did not consider was that the hat is a very common one that is widely sold in our area. I feel sorry for the little kid who was almost beaten for what turned out to be his own hat, but even that was pretty damn funny. Not for the kid, of course. Or for his mother, who came running to rescue him. But funny for me. I don't care, I love the protective big-brotherness of the act.

I have been teaching the boys karate lately and today they volunteered Mama to be the sparring partner. She was sitting by the river, minding her own business, when she heard a fast approaching cry - 'aaaaaahhhhh'. She turned to find Peter in mid-air, trying to execute a flying karate kick to her head. Luckily, Peter missed, but Angie still ended up with a muddy footprint on her shirt. I have a sneaking suspicion that our karate lessons may be temporarily on hold.
1) What was the best part of your day?
Peter: When we go to the Neckar with Dalia.
David: When happy birthday to you.

2) What was the worst part of your day?
Peter: One boy slipped and he can't swim, but then he was in the water and he can swim.
David: When doo-tee di-di-do.

3) What would you like to do tomorrow?
Peter: To go to Grams & Opa and to play with David.
David: Nani-noo-ni - I pick a good book.

    Oh I hate that. It reminds me of the things my father and brother would say when I had a date...just before my father would tell me he needed the socks back in the morning in time for church. so embarrasing. I really have never totally recovered.
