Hubba Hubba

I have nothing creative running through my brain. We've had fights, arguments, temper tantrums, and I'm pretty sure at least one Geneva Convention rule broken today.

Tired, wore out, and just plain exhausted doesn't begin to cover it. As I wound my way around the World Wide Web tonight, I stumbled upon this trailer for the movie "Parenthood".

All these years later, it's amazing how true to life it really is.

And yes, I DID wear that exact same outfit later on in the evening.

I gotta go now.

For some reason, Ang hid the Valium.

And in case you were wondering; that WAS Trot with the bucket on his head banging against the wall.

The last two mornings, we've had fights with Stephanie about one thing or another. Wednesday, she ruined my wife's birthday by insisting that she needed to go to the doctor because her ankle hurt. I think the kid has Munchausen's. Seriously. She's obsessed with going to the doctor.

Yesterday morning, I got home from work and they were fighting about taking a shower. I swear, the kid would never take one if we would let her get away with it. And it's not really about taking the shower, you's all about control. I threatened her with a rolled up newspaper.

I don't think you can really hurt someone with a rolled up newspaper can you??

All that to say...I sympathize completely with you, man! In my house, it's ME doing the bucket bang.

Tex, I'm thinking about suing them for taking parts of our life and putting it to film.

Bickley, a rolled up newspaper would be laughed at here. I'm seriously thinking about a cue ball in a sock or a pair of brass knuckles. Keep the Fair, Bickley. And buy a punching bag to work all the stress out.

I think just about every dad can relate to something in Parenthood. I'm either the guy with the little girl wrapped around his leg or the guy going aggro on the pinata.

I totally forgot Keanu "I am an FBI agent" Reeves was in that! Tee hee! (what a dink)

Ted D said...

I think you're right, Redbeard. At one time or another, we're all sort of like Steve Martin in that movie. The scene where the little girl throws up? Me times 3.

Ted D said...

Court, where in the world have you been? And please keep the Golden Girls or whatever you called them retired. ;)

How is everyone? I haven't talked to them in forever.

Well atleast your kids didn't set a flyer on fire at 3AM, causing people to wake up on a dorm floor...oh wait, I was sane at home.

Could be worse...I guess?

Ted D said...

Krystle, it could always be worse.
