Bucket Heads

What is even cuter than this picture is the following two minutes. David's bucket slipped down over his eyes and his head became totally stuck. He panicked and began running around like a chicken with it's head cut off. It must have been a possessed chicken, since even without a head, it was able to scream like a little girl. The screaming stopped and my laughing started when David ran full force into our shoe closet. And who said buckets can't be funny?

Grams and Opa came over today to help Angie with the boys. For Peter's third day of swim class, it was Grams, Opa, Peter and David. I can only imagine how David reacted to not being able to get in the pool with his brother. Man, I am so glad I was at work for that one.

I came back from work and took the boys to the playground, where Peter and I met a real jackhole. His daughter had obviously learned her manners from jerko-dad. Peter tried talking to them and he was being so nice, but they completely ignored him and did not answer his questions. I told Peter to ignore them and explained what the A in antisocial stood for.

As I put the boys to bed, Peter asked why it is ok to be naked in the bathtub, but not in a swimming pool. Jesus! What's next - why do you park on a driveway, but drive on a parkway? I tried to explain, but I'll be damned if his questions aren't getting harder. I hope there is not a quiz when he turns 18 because I will be screwed.

Peter fell asleep easily, but David was somehow restless and really fighting the whole bedtime routine. It was getting pretty late, so I finally had to resort to threats. If you don't lay down right now, I'm going to go and get the bucket!
1) What was the best part of your day?
Peter: When I went to the playground and when we come back up and my mommy was feeling better.
David: When I play aminals.

2) What was the worst part of your day?
Peter: When I couldn't see you today because you was by work.
David: When Gizma scratch me.

3) What would you like to do tomorrow?
Peter: To go with you to play a game outside on the playground.
David: When I play pirates.
