Man, kids will do anything.


I don't have any good "my kid" stories. She's pretty much just a regular 3-year-old.


She is cute, though:

Man, she looks very much like you Knapp. Proud papa you must be. :-D

Very. :-D
AND, she's a genius. And I'm not just saying that. She is way advanced for her age.


Omaha, this picture was taken at the Henry Doorly Zoo, by the waterfall just outside the Giraffe Pen. It's a great place for pics of the kids. ;-D

My 2-3 yr old story...

I was in SC visiting my half-sister because her son had died in a car wreck. After the funeral, she was having a ...thing at her house for family and friends to come visit and offer condoliences. Since we hadn't seen each other in a few years, my wife, daughter, mother, and brother stayed around to visit with her and my other 2 half-sisters.

She has these 3 huge pittbull, lab mixes...the kind of dogs most people would be scared of, but they were really sweet. As we talked, my daughter played with the dogs. They ran all over the house chasing a tennis ball. My daughter was rolling all over the floor with them, reaching into their snapping jaws to pull out the ball to throw again...and just generally rough housing with them. It got to the point where Anéla (my daughter) was becoming their leader and we could tell they were being submissive to her.

Anyways, as we were talking, things got quiet and we didn't realize the dogs and my daughter had disappeared. My brother gets up and walks down the hall to go to the restroom, but turns around and walks back into the living room. With a jerk of his thumb over his shoulder he deadpans..."You're daughter's drinking out of the toliet."

Everything went really quiet before my wife and I started busting out laughing. Anéla had followed the dogs in for a drink....but thank goodness she was only scooping the water with her hand instead of sticking her head in the toliet like the dogs. Needless to say, when we got back to the hotel, she got scrubed down in the tub and her teeth were scrubed....a couple times.:-b

She's now about to turn 5 and we still call her "potty mouth" from time to time. :-b


Hilarious mystic! My wife and I busted a gut over your story!

VERY cute, Cap! How long has she been using a "big girl" swing? Maddie HAD to use hers this Spring - that's what the big kids at school use. ;-)

Thanks knapp - Meghan's been using the "big girl" swing since I installed the playset last spring. Meghan had to use b/c her big sister uses it. Meghan is my "tomboy" - she's a total daredevil and not afraid of anything. If I'm laying on the floor, she'll take a running leap - go airborne - and land on me. My eldest is the princess.

"Good girl, Bad attitude" - That's classic, Mystic!

Cute girl, too. She looks "peppy." I'll bet she keeps you busy. :-D

We actually got that idea from a Tinker Bell t-shirt. We saw it and was like...that's sooo her. We bought the shirt, but unfortunately because of the way the shoulders were cut it sat oddly on her shoulders and stuck out, so we had to return it and get a different Tinker Bell shirt.

I couldn't take a pic like yours. My wife and I tried our hardest to avoid getting water in her ears as an infant to avoid ear infections, so she doesn't like water on her head. She complains everytime we wash her hair. She loves to swim, but she won't go underwater and she won't swim without her floatie. She'd be too afraid of that running water to get that close without someone standing there with her. At least at first, then she'd get used to it and realize it's not going to sweep her away and get her head wet.
