My wife is doing a series at church on the founding of America, of course that means Pilgrims. As she's researching, she keeps finding new things related to what she's looking at and trying to figure

Last night my eldest (7) took all his remaining allowance and birthday money (~$40) and put it in an envelope to give to the church. He said, "The church needs it more than I do. It will help."   My

Student: "I notice that you've been getting more sassy with our class. Is that because you're starting to feel more comfortable with us, or because you're just getting tired of our bullcrap?"   Me:

I was talking to my daughter last weekend about my upcoming Champions game, where the PCs' foes would be vampires.  Through a convoluted conversation I won't go into, she insisted that I needed to make one of the vampires be Elvis (or at least an Elvis impersonator). 

 

As I was writing up my game notes, I decided to write a few modified Elvis songs.  For example,

 

"Well, a-curse my soul, what's a-wrong with me?

I'm itchin' like a bat on a fuzzy tree.

My friends say I'm acting wild as a wolf,

I'm in love, huh, I vant your blood."

 

When I sang a few of them for my daughter, she shook her head sadly and said, "I regret some of the choices I made this past weekend."

He is a awesome dad. Learning that their parents can be embarasing is something that should happen normally in that life part. He applies "show, don't tell".

I think so - but I'm admittedly a biased judge. 

 

Here's one exchange with her I posted in the Quotes of the Week from My Gaming Group thread:

 

Quote

My budding supervillain daughter is watching me map out the building.

Her: Where's the armory?
Me: ... ?!?! It's a day care center! You don't put an armory in a day care center!!
Her: (pause) Maybe it's an EVIL day care center.

A few minutes later:

Her: So, no poison pit?
Me: Nope. Though it does have a ball pit. They never clean those, so it's probably pretty dangerous.

Thank you, but I give myself at best a "B+", more likely a "B" as a dad.  Parenting is one of those jobs where most of the tests come before the lessons.  But I consider myself extremely lucky that my kids (who are age 26 and almost 23) and I are friends as well as parent/children.  They turned out pretty good, despite my influence.  :winkgrin:
