The nutty professor

I know I already did a blog last week about David going nuts, but he really is. If I hadn't stopped him today, he would have collected enough chestnuts to spell out David the nut collector, just doing my job. I think he likes them so much because of the similarities with his own head. Brown on the outside, hard to crack open and not so much meat on the inside.

Angie had a doctor's appointment today. Her preg-o-date is in two days, so it's coming down to the finish line. As she left, I stopped and asked her if she had her cell phone. No, came the answer, as if I were a stupid stupo for asking that question. Because, what earth-shattering event could possibly happen two days before her due date where it might be good for her to be able to get in touch with me? How idiotic of silly old me. Hey sweetie, if you have the baby while you're out, don't forget to send me a postcard, ok?

After kindergarten today, Peter came home and gave David a big hug. Angie told him you're such a nice brother, to which Peter replied with a sigh I'm just doing my job. Very cute. Then Peter went to the toilet and called me in when he was finished to show me his new trick. I watched hesitantly as he put his chin about an inch from the toilet seat and then flushed, spraying water in his face. Not very cute.

After hygenically explaining to Peter why his trick was not a good one, I went in to wake up Angie, who was taking a nap after a long day of sleeping. She is in the last few days of the pregnancy and she has gone into hibernation mode. She did this with Peter and David, so I was not alarmed. It's almost as if her body is preparing for something.

She woke up groggy, mumbling something about beached whales and her arms being asleep. I left the whale comment completely alone and tried shaking her arms to wake them up. It didn't work, but she thanked me for trying to help. Hey, I'm just doing my job.
