But I completely understand where you're coming from. I read your post to my coworker and she laughed! She had complained ot me after the movie, so that stuck in my head.
I am a big proponent of environmentally friendly practices, but this was an either/or movie

I think the mom has to be super-convincing that she knows what's going on and it's NOT what it appears to be.

No one really wants to know about their parents' sex life.

Race, good point. That way they know dad isn't "cheating" but also don't know more than they want/need to know.

I'm home! Stopped at a liquor store on the way home, had to write directions to get there. they don't take credit cards (whICH i knew, so I had cash on me). Inside was an off duty st. paul cop, and holy crapoli he is the hottest man I've seen in ... maybe my life. Hotter than Bradley Cooper. Dark hair, gorgeous face... and he was super nice and chatty with people, big smile on his face, good mood.

Nice job in the hiring, st. paul. Nice job.

Now going to have a cocktail and put a pizza in the oven, and game. L8R

Oh, there you are. Come along home , dear . I have some milk nd oreos for you and you can watch Garfield Goose if you like.
I don't like milk and Oreos aren't really my thing. haven't heard of Garfield Goose. But I AM having a Captain Morgan and Sierra Mist, just smoked a bowl, and am going to go game while I watch Family Guy.

You needed written directions to a liquor store in St Paul? Did you have a Groupon or something?

A quacking goose puppet who "talked" to Frazier Thomas. He had the best personality for a kids show. Kid shows were calmer and informative then, I think. But my favorite was Ray Raynor. He had a real duck named Chelveston on the show. The duck was pretty vicious, and Ray would keep feeding it lettuce so it wouldn't bite him. Other days he would "visit" his friend "Cuddly Duddley", a life sized dog "puppet". He also did a weather report which was more accurate then the news shows. Met him and he was a really nice guy.

Thanks for the memories.
I had to sit with my kids every morning and watch this stuff. Their father worked nights and had to sleep so I had to keep them quiet.

WGN shows a program every holiday season that shows all these shows that were on years ago.

So I took my kid to the Magic game tonight. First time at a basketball game. Don't know what kinda mamby pamby bs they been teachin him at school, but, when someone from the other team was about to shoot a free throw, I started to boo. He told me not to boo because he's tying his hardest.

The place is far from a packed house, so when we were looking for our seats(way at the top) someone was in them, so I just turned in the other direction and sat in a wide open area(with a slightly better view). After half time, we were headed back to those seats, and were passing a wide open row lower down. I said "sit here".
And he tried to tell me "No. our seats are up there!" . I had to physically pick him up and start him down the row I wanted.

i barely remember Bozo and you think i'd know Garfield Goose first hand?:-j but then, i was raised listening to Andrews Sisters and watching My Three Sons & Donna Reed on NIck at Nite...

WGN rolls out a show "Bozo, Ray & Gar" (i think)- a retrospective of their kiddie shows - at the holidays. it might be available online soemwhere. I started watching it on New Year's but then the boys came in so we turned off the TV and played Legos instead.

That's the WGN show. I think kids even now would enjoy it. Or not. I don't have much interaction with the young ones now. Maybe it's not as active or noisy as they're used to. There's nothing more boring then the Susie Snowflake song. And it's like the It's a Small World one. stays in your brain forever.
Donna Reed is on a local station here. I don't know about anyone else but my mother did not wear her best dresses with pearls and high heels to vacuum the house. But I do...:)

So, you'd rather the schools teach your kids how to be rude and dishonest? I realize your game strategy was not that serious, but I'm thinking of the just overall good character building. Traits that seem to be lacking these days.

See if you can eavesdrop on his telling someone else what it was like . He's 7? Good that he was able to stay through the whole thing.

When I was 12 or so my dad got tickets for a Blackhawks game at the old Stadium. He had 4 together and the 5th a few rows up not near the rest of them. That was my seat. I have very different memories of that game than my dad or my sibs. Old smelly men with cigars they were smoking who were yelling and looking sideways at me when they swore- a lot. I didn't understand what all was going on on teh ice and no one near by was explaining really

Took the dogs to the semi-muddy dog park, then we hit Starbucks on the way home. They offered me "puppuchinos" for the beasts--coffee lids full of whipped cream.

Probably a good time to get the car detailed...

So A and I had a productive day of moving and cleaning and unpacking yesterday, then we went to see the movie Temptation (it was AWFUL, do not go), then I went out to watch the Gator game which came on like 40 minutes later than was originally scheduled. I'm soooo tired. I've resigned myself to the fact that I'm probably never going to catch up on sleep.
