I'm shining in the rain

Today was Peter's first day at the new Kindergarten. As you can see, he is glowing with excitement. The umbrella was part of a back-to-school package that Angie put together for him - a new umbrella, scissors, slippers, and of course, a gun. Luckily, the gun was made of rubber. He won't get the real thing until he starts high school.

Angie got a little nervous today about the baby room. Actually, it was more like a mild panic attack. Ok, it was a full-blown, head-spinning, freak-out-a-thon that ended up with me building IKEA furniture all afternoon. I now officially hate Sweden.

After lunch, David found a bag of marbles and what else would any intelligent human being do with marbles other than to quickly cram as many of them into your greedy little mouth as you can? I blame my father, who made me watch 'The Godfather' so many times growing up that I somehow passed on this freak gene to my children. Thanks, Dad - if I wake up to a dead horse in my bed, I am sending you the dry-cleaning bill.

The tricky part of having a mouthful of marbles is getting them out without choking to death. David immediately confused my concern with some new game where he runs away down the hall laughing. I finally tackled El Padrino by his bed and managed to extract all of them. At least, I hope I got all of them. I should know for sure in the next day or so.
[David's pillow made an offer he couldn't refuse, so no Ladder Talk tonight]
1) What was the best part of your day?
Peter: When I went to my new kindergarten.

2) What was the worst part of your day?
Peter: When my belly full.

3) What would you like to do tomorrow?
Peter: To play with you on the playground football.

  1. Hi Peter, it's me, Eisi. Looks like you enjoyed your first day at the new kindergarten. And I'm pretty sure you made some new friends. Soon I'm back and you can tell me about it and - which is much more important - we can do a lot of QUATSCH again. Greetings, christian
