The End...

Boy Child and GFOBC (girl friend of Boy Child) are breaking up and in the discussion they are dividing up stuff! Boy Child: "You can have the family room and the kitchen; I'm taking the Play Room and the living room". This is the most surreal thing I have ever experienced.

Summer Fun!

My kids have decided to play that classic game this summer. It's called lets see how much we can annoy daddy before threatens to beat us.

Girl Friend says...

Boy Child tried to "break up" with his girl friend today because he likes another girl. Response from said girl friend "Shut up, you aren't allowed to break up with me". So now Boy Child wants to know if it is ok to just ask out the other girl since he tried. Oh, need I remind you he is all of 6 years old.

Boy Child: Making a color chart.

The Boy Child Project

The Boy Child, is inquisitive. How inquisitive? Well, he has decided that he wants to decorate his room in maps and post cards from around the world. So in an effort to foster his desire to learn the wife and I have acquired world maps, subway maps, treasure maps and Disney maps and framed and hung them in his room.

Maps are easy. We can go to Target, The Learning Store and the local book store for those. It's the post cards that are the problem. And then I had an idea; thanks to the beauty of the Internet we have been able to connect with friends and family all over the world. And well, we were hoping that could look to you, our friends around the world, to possibly send a post card our way that shows off the beauty of where you live. If you, or anyone you know, are willing to help please send us a message and we will forward you our address.

All post cards we receive will be scanned and posted here as part of the Boy Child Project!

The English language is dumb...

The Setting: Boy Child and I working on his home work after school.

Me: ... actually that is the word "know".
Boy Child: No, no is spelled "no". I know that word.
Me: Actually it is spelled both ways and has 2 different meanings.
Boy Child: Seriously, how do they expect me to learn English is they keep making up all new rules?
Me: That is a very good question; just wait until we start discussing "to", "too" and "two".
Boy Child: English is dumb.
Me: Which ends in a silent "B".
Boy Child: Wait, what, why?
Me: I have no clue.

I have always said that the Family Sarcasm evolves with each generation of Gold men. My grandfather was sarcastic, my father was more sarcastic than him and I in turn am more sarcastic than my father. And all was right in the world until 5 years ago when my wife and i were blessed with a bouncing bundle of joy. We shall call him... Boy Child. From birth I knew there was something special about this one; he would roll his eyes when ever anyone made mention of how lucky we were to have a boy instead of a girl. There was a glint in his eye as if he was already saying just wait until I can talk.

Now here we are 5 years later and he is proving to be a sarcasm prodigy. In this space I will share with you some of the amazing pearls that he drops at the most inappropriate time.

Today, we shall start with last nights "complement" to his mother.

Boy Child Says: When I grow up I'm gonna be just like mom. Very responsible and no fun.
