Cotton breath

I've always wondered what the hell Angie does while I'm at work and how the kids could possibly have that much energy when I come home. Now I know - she takes them to the carnies and feeds them candy until they foam at the mouth. Good one, sweetie - maybe the next 'frenzy' can take place while I'm away on business?

Apparently, the sugar-fueled craziness can all be blamed on David's bowel movements. Oh, ok... well, as long as there is a logical explanation. Logic is not one of Angie's strong points. It's not even one of her weak points, but eventually I pieced together that David made it through a full day without wearing a diaper. This in itself is not news; the fact that he went the entire day without a diaper and managed not to soil himself or others is news.

As much as I know how much my two readers love hearing all about David's digestive progression, perhaps we should move back to the cotton candy rewards that the boys were reaping thanks to David's long overdue jump to the big-boy side of life.

I guess Captain Commando did not get high enough off of the sugar cone he had inhaled. To keep the adrenaline flying, he jumped on the nearest rocket and blasted off.

There was a green button that made the thing go up and down. After his solo flight, Destructo Dave smelled a little like hydraulic fluid and I am quite sure that the green button was broken. Before any of the freaky carnies could figure out what had happened to their ride, the boys rode off into the sunset.

The horse was obviously not aware that it was David's first full day without diapers. Luckily, the saddle remained dry as the two bandits headed south. Then east. Then north. Then west. Then south again. Yeah, that's right, genius - they were going in circles. Aren't we all?

After their odd little version of Showdown at the C.C. Corral, the Cotton Candy cowboys were getting mighty tuckered out. When the Sheriff instructed them to head back to the ranch, though, the Three Amigos were slightly less than thrilled.

Angie's excuse for rounding up the caballeros - 'Papa's coming home soon'. That's great - not only did you manage to wind them up to the breaking point, you were also able to somehow blame me while diverting their anger and disappointment on my unsuspecting ass as I walked in the front door.

'Hey, boys - I'm home!'
Ladder Talk:
1) What was the best part of your day?
Peter: When we go'ed on the rolly coaster rides - the first time I go'ed with Mama and David. The second time mommy was on not - I was there myself.
David: When we have no picture from Grams and Opa.

2) What was the worst part of your day?
Peter: When my foot hurt a little bit 'cause I tripped and bonked me self there.
David: When we only watch one Spongebob.

3) What would you like to do tomorrow?
Peter: To play hide-n-seek.
David: When Peter hide again in my covers like a bear.
