Being a good parent

Before you have kids you always wonder if you'll be a good parent.

And then you have kids and wonder:

::am i a good parent, am i a good parent, am i a good parent::

And you think this when they're babies.

And when they're toddlers

And when they get to school age

::am i a good parent, am i a good parent, am i a good parent::

And then they become teenagers.

::am i a good parent, am i a good parent, am i a good parent::

And then today your youngest starts her first day of senior year in high school and she's wearing a Christopher Walken t-shirt and you KNOW deep in your heart you've been a great parent.

You've taught them well.

Very cool! Do those come in toddler sizes? The Lois Boys need some new fashions.

Y'know, I've always thought this blog needed more cowbell...

I've checked the manual....it's impossible for this blog to have any more cowbell then we already have.

Sorry.

Think outside the box for once.

Clearly, not only have you guys been A+ parents, you have produced the coolest high school senior ever. I gotta go watch that "Weapon of Choice" video with Christopher Walken dancing STAT. And remember, it ain't "Don't Fear the Reaper" if it don't have enough cowbell.

Sparkle: While you're over watching the Weapon of Choice video, check out the video of Walken cooking a chicken with pears too on YouTube.

He should have a show on Food Network, definitely.

Lois: That dude has mad skills.

A friend sent me that cooking video the other day...I didn't believe it could actually be Walken and had to be talked into opening it.

He dances, he cooks, he's funny...I want to marry him, I think. (Shhh, don't tell anyone.)

I think I now have a "man-crush" on Christopher Walken.

"Bacon Ace has a vagina!?"

I did, then it moved out.

Christopher Walken made an appearence on the Henry Rollins show a couple weeks ago, too.

If Rollins likes him, I like him. I think those are generally words we can all live by...

Bacon Ace-

"..and then she moved out"

I'm speechless.
