^ Lil, I hope you didn't think I was implying that!

Just responding to Drew's "if Lil told you to jump off Hoover Dam, etc"  My response is that I trust you enough personally that if you told me to do that it was to save my life or something.

What everyone else decides for them is for them to determine.

And I do believe you know the language of the law and you are straight up to the point that sometimes you agree with Drew against me!  If you said the law was good I would take another look at it to see why!

But you didn't and other people I trust have said the same thing.

Now, I am glad to see you practicing all of those Parental phrases like the "jumping off the Hoover Dam" one.
Yep. Just trying to get into the groove of it.  :cool:
Heehee.  I swore as  child I would NEVER say things like that to children.  We do, but in an exaggerated way to make fun of it and then we state the reasons why a certain behavior is unacceptable.

Like "take your hands OFF your brothers neck, can't you see he CAN'T breathe!!!"

When the kids were little (my niece and nephew), I had zebra finches - and I used to yell "no hissing, no spitting, no chasing!" at them when they got rowdy. When the kids would fight I would yell "no hissing, no spitting, no chasing! Don't look at your sister, don't talk to your sister, DON'T TOUCH YOUR SISTER!" They'd crack up every time and forget what they were fighting about.  :hehe:

I have to admit that now that Ben is almost 21, and Jenna is almost 17, I *still* haven't gotten up the nerve to get in a car with either of them.  :lol:  Sure makes you empathize with your parents.  :p

Girls aren't any easier - they're just difficult in other areas than boys.  :wideeyed:

But then I'm doomed. Because all she'll have to do is look up at me with watery eyes and I'll give her anything she wants.  :look:

Ohh, YES. :lol: My mother, because of her bad relationship with her father, wasn't at all certain she'd be able to deal with sons. She never found out, because she had two daughters, but I'm afraid that we put her through hell. :crazy: Poor, poor woman, thinking that daughters would be easier... :wideeyed:
