My daughter (Keiana) were sitting at the dinner table eating. It was quiet, like always. You could hear the lights above the table type quiet. I take a bite and she out of the blue asks. Well, this is how it went.

[ul]Keiana: Am I ever going to have a step mom".

Me: (stumped, speechless, afraid to say the wrong thing, decided to mimic a filibuster) Ah, do you... want one? (with a puzzled look on my face)

Keiana: Yeah.

Me: Why?

Keiana: Just cuz..

Me: (still nervous of saying the wrong thing, i copted out an started making jokes) You want a step mom cuz ya don't like my cooking huh ... thats it isnt it? hah

Keiana: heh yea daddy that too, plus i bet if i had a step mom she could do my hair really nice (at this point she hid her little chipmunk cheeked face behind her homework folder)

Me: Okay ... Tell ya what, I'll go to the step mom store later tonight and pick one out just for you. (with a big smile on my face)

Keiana: (confused like mad crazy she asks) if its that easy... why haven't you done it already?

Me: (realizing i jus screwed up here) Umm, its not really that easy honey but just finish your dinner okay. [/ul]


Ya know, I always figured it would be my grandma or mother who would be urging me, pressuring me or what have you to get married, not my seven year old daughter! lol


Kids will say the damnedest things, I tell ya.

I love seven.

My son David: Dad? can I keep this fish?

Me: No David, we got to let him grow up, plus his mom and dad would miss him.

My son David: Dad? can I keep this one?

Me: No David, he's the same size as the last one, and you don't want to keep him from his mom and dad, do you?

My son David: (Silence)

We go home from fishing.

My wife Vicky: (After noticing that our aquarium was chock-full of bluegills and sunfish) "Dear, had you happened to notice that your son was stuffing his pockets with fish while you guys were fishing? (As she whips out about 4 more from his cargo pockets)

This is probably way out of line, as I don't know the situation up in Oh, too land, but it sounds like Keiana is givin' dad the go-ahead for a little strange... Maybe dad should spend a little less time hovering over his internet buds and a little more time cleaning up the remnants of the coal burning operation.... haul them ashes... you are now authorized to the degree that your daughter is calling you out for lack of poonie production!

Again, I hope this is in line with humor and not hitting a wrong note... I really don't know.

My son's name is David as well. I could see him doing the same when he was 7. +2

Zero,
I was never in your position. Be careful how often you make jokes. I know you were stunned so your reaction was natural. You had a good recovery.
Next time you should be the one to take the initiative in this conversation and explain why she does not have a step mother. (yet) Treat her like a grown up in this issue. (of course you don't have to be too explicit.)

4PG, your problem is solved. My wife said, "We always went together." (Not really she went to these more often than I did.) Get someone to watch the kids for an hour and the Dad Dan won't miss out on all the fun.

I'll go... teachers LOVE me at these conferences.

Liberal Wacked-out teacher: Well, your son does seem to have some developmental issues, possibly A.D.D., possibly at that growing stage where priorities are misplaced, we here at the school feel...yada, yada, yada........

Even More Liberal and pandering to her baby boy wife: Well, if you people paid a little more attention to my son's unique characteristics and allowed him to flourish.... yada, yada, yada...........

Hard-core a$hole father (Me): You can beat him if you want. Hell, I'll beat him for you... where is that lazy little sh*t, anyway... he needs a nice-swift kick in the ass, RFN....

I didn't get to go to many of the parent-teacher conferences....
:icon_smile:

EDIT- I never ACTUALLY beat my kids, but all of them SWEAR to this day that I did. All five of them got a really good smack on the butt for some indiscretion pre-kindergarten, coupled with good voice, volume and enthusiasm in the send a cold-rush of sh*t straight to the heart of the offender department. Mom milked that whack for entire child-hoods... "Just wait until your father gets home." was standard fare in my household. :icon_smile:

Here's one of my favorite stories,
My secretary use to be a nanny for a couple out in the DC area.
She had taken the two young children to the mall. The youngest was around a year old and sat in the stroller most of the time. The older one was about 3-3 1/2 and he had to walk.
As they were leaving the 3 year old become fussy since he was getting tired.
"Carry me."
My secretary told him that she couldn't. I think by now the baby was out of the stroller and she was holding her. The stroller was full of stuff they had bought.
The 3 yr old, who had been trudging along and dragging his feet finally falls to the ground and would not go any further. He hollers even louder, "Carry me."
My secretary/one time nanny (who is not very big herself) tells him that she can't. She has the baby and is not able to carry them both.

Now most of you know that you tend treat your OWN children a whole lot different that you treat some one else's children. If my kid were laying there fussing I would pick him up and swat his behind and tell him to march. She could not or would not do this. So she simply told him that he would have to walk after all his legs weren't broken.

Not missing a beat he started to plead once again, "Carry me. My legs are broken!"
