Pumpkin Head

Peter, Peter pumpkin eater, had a wife but couldn't keep her. Well no kidding, freak-o. Who wants to be married to Pumpkin Top?

Angie's day started out with a shower. With three boys and a cat, Angie and I have to set aside time to brush our teeth, so a shower can be somewhat of a luxury.

This morning, luxury turned quickly into disaster shortly after Angie rinsed off the shampoo. I picture the events unfolding as follows.

Angie is destinkafying under a steady stream of hot water, letting her muscles soak away the sores of lugging babies and diaper bags around all day. Her thoughts drift back to a hilarious prank that her mega-funny husband pulled on her years ago B.C. (before children)

At that time, I snuck into the bathroom and unscrewed the lid on her shampoo bottle. Next, I took duct tape and completely taped shut the hole. Then I put the lid back on and waited. And waited. And waited. Ok, maybe Angie didn't shower that often even before we had kids.

Eventually, Angie did bathe again and I huddled outside the door, giggling in anticipation like a little school girl. Finally, the moment came when Angie stood in the shower, hands above her head gripping the shampoo bottle and squeezing until turning red in the face. Finally, the moment of realization hit. 'STEVE!!!!'

It is at this moment of fond remembrance that Angie finishes rinsing off the shampoo only to find that David's hand is sticking through the shower curtains. In his hand, our portable phone, getting completely soaked. 'Mama. Phone. For you?'

We have a history of destroying phones in our family. Oddly enough, the destruction of said phones tends to revolve around Peter, David, and water. With Tom getting bigger by the week, we may need to invest in non-portable water-proof phones with short cords.
Ladder Talk:
1) What was the best part of your day?
Peter: When I said goodnight to Mama.
David: When I go'ed mit you and Mama said you are out.

2) What was the worst part of your day?
Peter: When I couldn't play with Eisi so long.
David: Peter said you Mama out and I not.

3) What would you like to do tomorrow?
Peter: To play with Dalia.
David: When I go mit Peter and bring in water.
