|Dramatic photo reveals kid re-enacting Bay of Pigs invasion with updated night vision gear. "This time the good guys get to win!"|
If I knew what I was getting into when I became a parent, well, I would say, yay!
So far things have worked out pretty well. I realize that my tastes and opinions are not what the mainstream refers to as "normal." So how the hell am I supposed to have normal kids?
So the kids are doing weird stuff and I approve. Sort of. The problem occurs when the weirdness is directed in a way that does not meet my seal of weird approval. For example, the kids like watching videos of other people playing video games. I say make your own videos!
As I live in Portland, I'm a big believer in doing the weird stuff yourself and not being a passive consumer of generic weirdness.
At the moment both kids are sick with colds and coughs and so we're taking a break in artistic expression and settling in until the winds of health blow us back on course.
Until then stay tuned.
