Our cat was losing weight and vomiting a couple of times a week for years. The kids knew he was sick.

He suddenly blew up like a basketballand the vet said cancer and gave him weeks. We told the kids that and the 5yo and 9yo balled. Then he was in so much pain, we put him down like 4 days later (a god damned week before Christmas). Everyone balled. The 11yo had the hardest time that day. Once a week or so, there is some sadness as something reminds us all of him.

I actually ordered a picture book from Shutterfly b/c the kids wanted one to remember him by. I'm sure there will be much crying from all when that arrives.

Hell, it was hard for me too. That cat predated my marriage. I took him to the vet and held him as he died.


I know I'm a bad person. I've put down pets, and it's awful. But if you're going to compare the animal to a basketball, you've got to spell 'bawled' correctly or I'm going to laugh at the image that comes to my mind.


I was too grief stricken to properly consider my grammar. Now you guys have forced me to relive this extremely painful moment in my life with the added trauma of your abuse.

Your grammar was fine; it was the spelling that was on the low-end of retarded.

My son recently got Minecraft for his phone. Because he's too young to have an account, I signed into my Xbox live account for it. Because of this I get notifications like, "Wow, you got an achievement for making an axe!". Whatever.

Anyway, I get one at 9:58 at night and so I try to talk to him about it the next day. The usual teenage "I didn't do it I don't know why you don't believe me!" started up until I told him that I don't care. That confused him. I said I don't care what you do but if your grades start to slip (and he's got a 4.0) then it's over entirely.

Why does this matter? He woke me up at 10:00 last night to tell me that he's on this server that has this awesome whatever and if he doesn't log in every day it will disappear. And he prefaced this with, "Now remember, you said that you don't care about this."

We're going to have another talk about this, I think.

I'm not going back on it, I'm just going to clarify further from "grades" to "grades and MY sleep".

Guys, I love my 11 year old, but fuck!

I find myself leaving a room just so he can't ask me another idiotic question, tell me another pointless fact, or start another boring story which he forgets before he's finished.

Wait till he’s 14. We’ve started hiding out in our bedroom because the kids pretty much ran us out of the living room. We’ll be trying to watch tv and the 14-year-old will come in and talk and ask questions and generally annoy the fuck out of us. It takes an hour and a half to watch a 22-minute show.

Buy him an Xbox, allow him to have it in his room and have no rules surrounding it's use. You'll only ever see him for occasional meals again.

Discussion with my 11yr old ...

O: Do you know what Scratch is?
Me: No.
O proceeds to explain what scratch is. It's some kind of coding app.
...
O: What games to you think were coded in Scratch?


Is he just fucking with me? How am I supposed to know the history of an app that he JUST explained to me!?

My kids use scratch too. It's mostly full of Minecraft and Call of Duty ripoffs as far as I can tell.

I think it's a block based interface to get people into coding or something.

My son is 9 months old today and he started "singing" during the breakdown of Stairway to Heaven in the car this morning. He was mimicking the guitar. I've never been more proud.
