Thanks Trish.

(my kids still drive me crazy.) :)

hehe, Tai ... so do mine.
So I pretend I can't hear (old age thingie) them and off they go...

Also found that playing really horrible old music makes them leave me in peace.

"What's that, mom?'
"Strawberry Alarmclock, honey."

Mine is 26 and has a two year old daughter of his own so....

Time takes care of all things.

Try Inna Gadda Davida that really gets too them although when he was 4+ my boy loved ZZ Top. Go figure.

I can't get mine to go away enough! It doesn't matter what music I play. They just keep following me around, wanting me to give them this and that, help them this and that, take them here and there, ... you know, huh? Meanwhile while I'm working so hard to feed them, they just lay around the house like couch potatoes and get up every now and then to ask me for something.

(Kid)... "Please dad?"
(Dad)... "You don't deserve it."
(Dad)... "Quit bugg'n me! Can't you see I'm trying to concentrate."

I hear ya, Chuck ..

When Dan was 5, he loved Deep Purple.
Now it's Eminem, JaRule and Old Dirty Bastard.
Go figure is right ....

Usually, live "Freebird'' keeps them out of my shop.
Usually..... haven't tried Butterfly. Yet.

Don't feel bad, Tai, my daughter just tried to sell me 'Smarties' candies for a quarter --apiece.

O well, have a good day anyhow, fellas .. Considering the constraints of parenthood --which ought to be replaced with the 'restraints of childhood.'

I gotta go peel some more epoxy off my thumbs,

Don't know what Ian's listening to theses days actually but for a while I know it was all hip hop and ging to raves. Marriage and fatherhood seems to have settled him down.

Your daughter sounds like she's in the running to rule the world one day and maybe soon!:D :rolleyes: :D

Tai seems like they go through stages at that age and I don't know what to tell you bro other than just hang in there.

Tris what in the heck are you epoxying? If it's knife handles get rid of it and try out cutler's resin/pitch. Once you get the hang of it, it's wondeful stuff.

Someone ought to do something about "parent abuse", Dr. Phil or Opra maybe. :)

Parent abuse has been running amuck unchecked for eons now!

I had sent my son over to his mother's (my ex wife's) house for a few days. I called her this morning to make plans to get him back for fathers day (huh?), and she was still in tears over some cruel, disrespectful and hurtfull things he said to her the night before! He picked at things she could do nothing about.... it just ain't fair, is it? His poor mother works so hard and loves him so much! It's a crying shame, kids these days... :(
