A Parent's Pride

Sometimes in the course of parenting I find that I make decisions that, in retrospect, look questionable.  For example, letting my son, at the age of 3, play the video game Plants vs. Zombies.  On the plus side, he is now, at the age of 4, capable of a pretty serviceable zombie impression.  You may have to be familiar with the Plants vs. Zombies particular brand of zombies to fully appreciate this performance.  Either way,  I submit, for your review:

I am both proud and mortified.

Karate Kid

Declan attended a martial arts birthday party for his friend Gavin. Declan was really really reluctant to participate.  He kept protesting that "fighting was bad" and he didn't want to be a fighter.  It took me a long time to cajole him into getting in there and mixing it up, but once he did, he loved it.

very pleased with himself...
