Leave me alone

What goes up must come down. What we see here are the after effects of a lot of sugar-packed candy and Kool-Aid. This would be the up. I really hope that Angie is the one around when he comes crashing back down.

David surprised me today by doing something that did not involve breaking windows, coloring on the wall or peeing on the sofa. Those examples were not changed to protect the innocent - David really did these things and he was guilty as hell.

David's pleasant shocker today was his ability to recite the entire ABC song, including the ever-annoying 'won't you sing with me next time?' question at the end. What pisses me off is that the first time you hear it, you are so thrilled that you accept this offer. This then locks you into singing the dumb-ass song for the next two years. My answer from now on is 'No! I will not sing that shitty song with you - it drives me nuts. If you really want to score points with me, forget the ABC song and learn both versions of Man From Nantucket.'

Barb stopped by today and as you can see here, she had lots of interesting things to show the boys. The first was how the sun is attracted to her butt for some strange reason. Holy crap?

Next, Barb thought it would be beyond brilliance to teach our children to put sharp knives in their mouths. Thanks, maybe next week you can show them the fine art of sword swallowing.

In her final tidbit of wisdom, the Godmother demonstrated how to sneak a pistol in her boot. At least now they are ready if prohibition ever comes around again. Even if it doesn't, what self-respecting four year-old doesn't know how to smuggle weapons? I just hope that Angie is the one around when they get caught crossing the border.

Peter: When I played by Grams & Opa and when Barbara came.
David: When I go'ed mit Peter to the zoo and see Opa and Grams and Babara.

2) What was the worst part of your day?
Peter: When I couldn't longer as 5 minutes to play.
David: When Tom cry.

3) What would you like to do tomorrow?
Peter: To play with you swords.
David: When I go mit Mama see you and Tom to see Babara and Opa and Grams.
