David vs. the caterpillar

Disgusto Angie found a slimy little bug in our salad growing in the garden and decided to teach our kids that it's perfectly ok to pick up creepy crawlies. Captain Dave must be a fisherman at heart, for he immediately tried to hook the bait. Luckily for Angie's hand, the Capt'n has not yet graduated from the rubber hook.

At breakfast today, I poured a cup of coffee using Peter's mug. I have two - each one has a picture of me with one of them, as babies. David immediately demanded to know why I was using Peter's cup and not his. Oh, jealousy starts at such a young age. Having just changed a rather stinky diaper, I really wanted to tell him it's because you don't use the toilet like a big boy, but I restrained myself and told him the truth - that his cup was dirty and Papa was too much of a lazy bastard to wash a mug.

Today I started a very short-lived game of indoor dodge ball. Angie was off getting poked at her preggy-puncture class, so I thought I would entertain the boys by pegging them in the head with some inflatable plastic. As it turned out, it was more entertaining for me than for them. After ten minutes of 'ow, Papa, that hurts' and 'my nose stings', I simply gave up. If they don't know how to have fun, it's not my fault.

Before dinner, Angie played Curious George with Peter. My thoughts drifted slightly and I found myself thinking about what a dumbass the Man with the Yellow hat is. I mean, come on! Every freakin' story starts out with some absurd scenario and the man telling George 'stay here and don't get into any trouble'. First of all, it's a monkey. Hello? Do you really expect a primate to sit still just because you tell them to? Even if the man was stupid enough to do it once, why does he continue to do it over and over again? Aren't we just teaching the kids to treat anyone wearing a yellow hat like a moron?

During dinner, David started the most disgusting display of noodle-eating I have ever seen in my entire life. It was like watching a car wreck in fast motion. I could not take my eyes off of him. He did things to those poor noodles that will haunt me in my nightmares for years. My only consolation was that Disgusto Angie now pales by comparison.
1) What was the best part of your day?
Peter: My best part from today was when I play with Mama Curious George and the Man with the Yellow Hat.
David: Peter look TV.

2) What was the worst part of your day?
Peter: When David said 'I want to hit you' and then later when he peed all over the floor.
David: When I bonk a shark so bonky my head.

3) What would you like to do tomorrow?
Peter: To play that crocodile game.
David: When Dalia come back and Dalia come back.
