Father of the Year

Boy: Did you vote for George Bush the second time?
Me: I NEVER voted for George Bush!
Boy: That's good.
Me: Why?
Boy: Because George Bush and John McCain are dickheads.
ME: WHAT!!!
Girl: Bwa-ha-ha-ha-ha!
Me: You can't say that word!
Boy: Oops! I'm sorry! I forgot!
Me: You forgot that you can't say the word "dickhead"?
Boy: No. I forgot I couldn't say it in front of you.

I am both proud and horrified at the same time.

Damn. You really should be proud though.

Amazingly perceptive. Spot-on description. I give him a 10.

@GSG: I feel I have sufficiently poisoned his political viewpoint if that's what you mean by "proud". :)

Kurt said...

@sungodly: I would agree. I just hope none of his teachers make him angry.

Kurt said...

@IC: I knew YOU'D think it was funny. :)

Oh Kip! It's even funnier now that I just remembered his mom is a republican! HAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHA! You have brought much joy on this day... ~IC

@IC: Don't think I didn't LOVE telling her about it this morning.

Thank God America's youth is not such a lost cause as they seem.

My teen keeps trying to steal my "Obama for Change" tote bag, and calling McCain a retard - even though that may be the most forbidden term in our house.....after Republican.

The boy really wanted to wear his Obama pins to kindie, he almost wouldn't go without them today (I'm not sure if that's allowed there-- what with the sharp pointy bits).

*chest puffs with pride*

With that level of honesty you can rest assured that the Boy will never be a politician.

Your kids are fucking awesome. The only behavior my dog has picked up from me is my OCD. Picky little bitch!

GO STEELERS!

Kurt said...

@PC: I would be furious if the kids used that word in the house. "Retard" would get a scolding as well...unless it was funny. It's a pretty funny word.

Kurt said...

@floyd: I know, right? And here I was hoping he'd be the one to take care of me in my old age.

@xo12: You shouldn't diss Miss Rio. She's awesome.

The reason they won on Monday night was because I tuned in after half-time. They hate disappointing me.
