Captain Sleepy

It ain't easy being a pirate. All that raiding and looting really tuckers you out. It also ain't easy being Dave. All the destroying and destructing is just exhausting. Put the two together and you get a pretty cool picture. That and a little drool on your pillow. It's ok, though (that's Angie's side of the bed).

Today, Angie took the boys to the water playground down by the river. As usual, Angie met up with half of the city. Mariam showed up with her boys, Meyssam and Elias. Karin showed up with Christoph. Clarice and Dalia also showed up, but they were about nine hours late, so they just missed everyone.

The boys brought their whales to the river. David kept throwing his in the water to splash people. When that didn't work, he filled buckets with water and searched for little kids that looked like they would cry easily.

Peter kept tossing his whale in the mud and asking people what animal it could be. It's still a whale, only now it's covered in mud, genius.

At one point, he started tagging along with the BIG KIDS. Luckily, by this point, he had given up on the muddy whale guessing game. By the end of the day, he knew all of their names. They, on the other hand, just kept calling him the Small One. Well, he may be small, but you should see this kick-ass trick he does with a whale.

When I put the boys to bed, Peter found a spider in bed and FREAKED the freak out. In his defense, it was a big one with long legs and it was perched on his freakin' pillow. It freaked me out, but I remained relatively calm. I explained that spiders are good, but they belong outside. Then I carried the pillow over to the window and let the little creepy crawly crawl out onto the window ledge.

I came back from the window expecting a hero's welcome for saving the day. Instead, I got yelled at by Peter for chucking the spider outside. 'You said spiders are nice, then you throw it outside. That's not nice!' Yeah, sorry about that. Small One.
1) What was the best part of your day?
Peter: When I went with Mommy to the Neckar playground.
David: In the Neckar water.

2) What was the worst part of your day?
Peter: When Elias go'ed..
David: When Gizma scratch me.

3) What would you like to do tomorrow?
Peter: I want to dress myself as a pirate.
David: When I go and Meyssam come and I say 'hi Meyssam'.
