And I have no idea if anyone is interested in these stories or not - I'm mostly posting them here for my own benefit.  I like opening this thread and going over past anecdotes. :)

I like the stories. :)

And they give you a lot of stuff to reminisce on talk about when he brings back his first girlfriend. :P

I've already got a couple of humiliating early childhood anecdotes picked out for Carl's first GF.  :P

I met a man who wasn’t there
He wasn’t there again today
I wish, I wish he’d go away...

In that case ... you aren't invited.  :P

So I did a spot of babysitting, as Mommy and Daddy hit a concert last night.
The 9 year old has access to her own computer from the kitchen, all locked down from the seedier side of the internet.
I asked her if it had parental controls on it, and she was all, "Yes, Mommy has parent controls on it, because there's this whole other side of the internet that isn’t kid friendly.”
I told her I’ve seen that side of the internet, and she wasn’t missing very much.
“Yes, it’s totally not age appropriate for me.”
I told her it wasn’t really age appropriate for me, either.
She said she didn’t need it anyway then.  Such a sharp girl.

I was watching TV when I heard one of the girls yelling "boogers!". So I get up and quietly 'observe' them. They had one of the iPads and apparently discovered the google voice search. After listening to them yell TURDS and POOP at the iPad and then giggle uncontrollably,I decide to intervene before WIENER and PEE PEE start getting thrown about.

So i pop out of my hiding space and they turn white. First I ask if they got permission to use the iPad. They start looking into space.. Yeah, that answers the question. Then I ask them where they learned those words. FROM YOU DADDY.  :Embarrass:

I decide not to punish them, but give them a talk about not taking things without permission. Then showed them the cannonball dookie and the boogers kid videos on youtube. I became father of the year in their eyes right then.

My sister's been doing "Movie Night" on Saturdays with the niece, the one night they can stay up later and watch movies with Mommy and Daddy.
Last week was Star Wars, and this past Saturday was Empire Strikes Back.
The youngest tried using The Force on Mommy all Sunday.  But Mommy's apparently too heavy.

Tommy does that, but without the turning white part-- if anything my presence encourages him using gross words somehow.  I'm guessing that's the difference between boys & girls.
