bump for slinky
My wife had to go out of town on business for the first time since we had our son. Last night I survived almost 14 hours alone and managed to keep an 8 month old alive overnight until the nanny showed up again this morning. I'm pretty proud of that and hats off to all the single parents out there.
my boy has an unnerving high ability at computer games.
he has only recently turned 4 and loves mario kart wii, he is so good at this that he wins nearly every race, even against his older brother and sisters and me.
he hammers his mum as she's rubbish.
if he's winning against the computer he'll stop on the line on the last lap turn the kart around and reverse over the line to win!
i have not taught him this!
he can also play fifa 12 at a good level.
this is cool but but slightly worrying!
he is also very good with apple products, but then what kid isn't!?
- oh and on coin battle he gets over 20 coins a battle and has had 38 once!cruddlebub
- get your kid away from this garbage. my god...CanHasQBN
- whats wrong with that?cruddlebub
- absence of other interests/skillsdrgs
- he loves football, drawing, music! he's only 4. kids are allowed to have fun!cruddlebub
I don't have children but I hang out with my friend's kids a lot. I seem to be surrounded by 4 year olds.
Yesterday I invited a friend over to work on our motorcycles; once we got done, ordered the necessary parts, we played ball with his son. It should be noted he wanted to know what we were doing & why. He said "Why.." several times followed by an interested "Oh." never fidgeting with tools or parts.
When we started playing, it was basketball first and he got at least 60% from underneath the 10ft basket, he was bouncing off the back board and everything. Then football, throwing wobbly spirals across the 3 car driveway. After going back to his dad's house, we played baseball where he hit several balls past and over his father...
Strange considering he was wearing his soccer uniform all day complete with shinguards from a game earlier in the day in which he scored on his own team.
I love that kid.
My son came in third place at a mile race for 7-10 year old. He's only 6, he pasted his heat and caught up to the first heat.
obviously, mom and dad are runners. He's already better than me as a runner...
my lad asked if he could listen to the tron music when he got home from play school today! :)
I like reading these posts from you guys. My fiance and I are getting married soon and are eager to start a family. I hope we can be parents eventually because we're both kind of selfish with our time and waste it sometimes on the stupidest crap. I really am excited about having a child in our lives someday because I know that will be so much more important and meaningful than some silly hobbies I have. Now, I'm not looking for a child to be a solution to anything or solve anything... I just mean that I daydream constantly about how awesome it must be to have this little human being depend on you for so much to really put life in perspective.
My twin boys are 17 months - and the first word they said was "da da" - now they say it every other word in every sentence. Makes me proud every time I hear - since I am still such a new dad. They tell me stories, most of which is gibberish other than the word "da da". Now they have more words that occasionally get mixed in, for example - dog, thank you, giggle, etc.
