However, trutch be told, there are, in fact, a lot of things my kids do that downright pisses me off.
But, once in a while (okay more than once in a while), they say something or do something that puts a great big smile on my face and makes me proudly say, "Yep, them's my kids."
Case in point was something that happened a couple days ago. I showed both of my kids (my 3-old son and 4-old daughter) the 50 monsters cartoon, which I posted last week prior to Halloween.
They were mesmerized. My daughter more so than my son. She was particularly taken by this image:
"What's that?" she asked.
"Oh, that's from the movie The Thing," I said.
"What is it?"
"It's a creature that takes the form of other creatures and, sort of, morphs into them via some crazy biology."
I don't think she really understood my answer. However, that was about the extent of the conversation.
I looked at her face and she was still transfixed. I was proud that she liked my stuff.
Yesterday, when I picked my daughter from school, she approached me with a proud smile on her face and handed me the following picture:
"What's this," I asked already knowing the answer.
"The Thing," she said with a beeming beautiful smile.
Not sure about you, but it does look like the creature Kurt Rusell confronted in the final scene.
