Not Even Saving This Gem for the X Blog!


So Zev went snowboarding with his dad this weekend.  That's cool - Zev sounds like he's having a blast!  Tonight on our good night call, I happened to ask, after he mentioned that he fell a few times today, "Are you wearing a helmet when you snowboard?"

"No," Zev replied.

"Why not?" I asked.

"Cuz Daddy says: (here it comes - ya'll better sit down!!) if I fall its a soft landing cuz the snow is soft."

Um....WTF???

i'm glad you gave the sit down warning!!! Whoa!!! Maybe a good physics lesson is in order here. Please remind dad that trees are not so soft either.

lol - OMG! u mean in NY you dont have styrofoam trees like in PA??

I give up.

But perhaps he'll listen to a third party - doubt it tho....

Thanks anyway!

He'll listen when the judge tells him he's losing visitation 'cause he's endangering the kid.
What a dingbat!

Update:
The bad news: My son came home quite worldly after a weekend of watching Hancock (PG-13), House (TV-14), Monk (TV-14) and South Park (from which he's been muttering something about killing Kenny and "dumbass" under his breath).

The good news: No concussion due to lack of helmet while snowboarding.

I think, in addition to Mrs. LFD's suggestion to a physics lesson, someone needs a class in Commom Sense.

Let me see if I understand you here.
You object to Z watching PG-13/TV-14, but you don't mind him reading this?

One is educational (and clearly marked age appropriate) the other isn't.

MK said...

marked age appropriate by who?
and South Park is very educational...

The only thing that is soft is DB's head!

Dear Lord. Its true. Procreation doesnt necessarily give dads brains. Jesus

Liz - dont worry - your hubby is exceptional!

Maybe he's confusing the snow with feathers?....

Liz said...

Aww. Thank you hon! (Still monitoring your "Momma" blog. :-) But I wont talk. I've been absent too much myself)

The smiles on those kids faces are simply Angelic !!
