LOL....welll sounds like we have a few "left feet" in the group...so I suggest at any future events that may involve dancing we don't allow filming of any sort...

What's something cool you have been taught by a kid?


I actually have 3-4 left feet when it comes to dancing.


Let's see, something cool I have been taught by a kid.

I don't know if this qualifies as cool or not but my Niece taught me how to make wallets, purses and flowers out of duct tape. It's been a while since I made one with her but I could probably still remember how if I had a roll of duct tape in front of me


She used to take the ones she made and sell them for a few bucks. A little entrepreneur!

Something cool of a more sentimental value, is something my Niece and Nephew helped to teach me to understand on a deeper level, is that with out love in your life, you are truly lost.... They taught me this through their actions and through being great kids.

They helped me to understand the greatness and importance of love.

I have seen that duck tape art...and they have beautiful duct tape now too! I've only seen this "designer" duck tape this last year....thought it was pretty fun.

I agree that kids can teach us alot about Love....lol....and that includes "loving" them when they are teenagers...talk about a "test" of faith.....yikes......


That's a fun question...what were you like as a teenager? What "crowd" were you in, Jock, Nerd, Cool kids, etc.?

For myself I would say I was a "crowd" jumper....played Volleyball, so could relate to Jocks, I liked school and was really into horticulture, so related to Nerds, I absolutely would not tolerate bullying around me, and took many a nerd out of bad situations because I was also a Cool kid, which gave me a certain about of "clout", plus my long time BF...age 12 till I went away to school...was very popular and played drums in a band....and if you "messed" with me or anyone I cared about, he would "deal" with you.....

It's funny, after all these years he still seems to have a 6th sense when it comes to me, I just got an e-mail from him, asking how I was.......lol...well as many of you know, probably more then you wanted, not so good lately...and although he is happily married now, and it's completely innocent....somehow he "knew" hearing from him would really cheer me up.....I didn't even tell him what was going on, I just said I was good, and asked him to say Hi to his family.....but it made me smile......

I would like to plead the fifth on that one


Okay, but really, I admit, I was a rather rebellious teenager. A trouble maker. Not mean by any means. I was sort of...The class clown type, perhaps... Skipped school some, like most kids do at some point or another.Just causing general trouble at school....I refuse to go into specifics though!


I was lucky enough to fit in with everyone. A crowd jumper as you call it. For whatever reason, I was welcome and fit in with all groups of people....

Though the teachers were kind of fed up with me at times.

I have done a lot of growing up though and am much more responsible with my mischief.

LOL...I knew you had a "dark side" ....yeah I was a handful in my teens too.....and it is absolutely true when your Mom tells you, "just wait till your a Mom"...., lol, probably the same thing with Father's saying something similiar to thier Sons, we should have listened. My Smart, Funny, Beautiful Daughter was been the "ultimate" Karma lesson, and my Mom had it "almost" completely right...♥

To be more open minded and "just be."

Kids live so much in there here and now, they don't stress about things the way adults do. I think if we as people lived more like that, there wouldn't be so much doom and gloom in the world.

My mom's piece of advice for raising children.... " Been there, done that, screwed it up, now it's your turn".


Well, hopefully I wont screw up being a dad.

How to examine a flower as if I'd never seen one before.

Because I guess I really hadn't.

Until I learned how to look.

From a child.

Evil.

Pure evil.

I didn't have a "crowd". I was a loner. I was the kid that everyone said "he was such a quiet kid... who knew?"

I guess maybe there is a possibility that I AM trainable - it just takes a kid to get the job done!

I was the ADHD Gifted kid that drives teachers crazy because they get "bored" and have to entertain themselves. I'd do all my homework, ask for more, do the next day's work, then get out of class the next day because it drove the teacher nuts....4.0+ GPA (weighted classes) , Presidential Scholarship, Valedictorian, voted "most mischevious" and had a really, really long rap sheet

Now..............why does that not surprise me.

NB: The banter between you and Ipsissimusmagus had me in stitches - my face still hurts. Love the Walmart Billboard, and the purple dinosaur father thing - classic stuff.
