Busted!

The kids from across the street were here playing with W. and T. yesterday. They are really good kids that have been friends with W. since he was a toddler. They are here quite a bit, which is fine with me because they keep W. and T. out of my hair busy.

Even though we have known them since they were barely walking, and even though there are times they practically live at our house, they are still very uneasy around Mr. Schmitty and myself. Actually, they are pretty uneasy around most people. J., the 9 year old boy, is shy and sensitive. K., the 11 year old girl, is self-conscious and awkward. I do my best to treat them like they are my own by bringing out my goofy, silly, crazy self to get them to laugh. I try to lighten the mood as much as possible.

Like any other 9-11 year old, they are addicted to their Gameboys. After lunch J., K., and my three kids were sprawled on the living room furniture. Each had a Nintendo DS. They were all in Pictochat sending messages back and forth to each other.

T. needed a bandaid, so he and I went downstairs to find one. He was putting the bandaid on his foot, because you know, HE.HAD.TO.DO.IT, and I held his DS. I glanced down at the screen and what did I see?

The little perverts were channeling Michelangelo! I grabbed the stylus and wrote, "Nice." That only prompted another drawing. Dumb arses! T. doesn't know how to write anything other than his name, didn't they realize it couldn't have been him responding? Did they seriously think he was commenting on their artistic ability?

I wrote, "Inappropriate!" Lord, there was a 4 and 5 year old involved here. Except I really wasn't that worried because the boobs looked like big cartoon eyes and the pee-pee, well it looked more like earmuffs. But that's beside the point.

I didn't know what each kid's screen name was, so I'm not sure which one responded, "Naga? Is that you?" Naga, of course, being T.

"Not Naga, MOM."

'Sonic has left the room', 'Runyon has left the room', 'Hydronoid has left the room', which left only K., scribbling away, lost in her own, innocent world.

The other three? I think they raced each other to the bathroom to check their pants for skids.

They did, didn't they? They pooped their pants! Eyeballs and earmuffs....thank goodness you have a few years until they discover porn on the internet. Call me, I have all kinds of tips for you when that happens.

LOL! So busted, and so silly. I love seeing kids faces deflate after they are caught out being smartarses. I think it's the sadist in me...

"Channeling Michelangelo!" That was awesome! Little pervs. I fear the day my kids are old enough to draw penises.

That's some funny stuff right there. Duly filed away when they begin lobbying for Game Boys...

Oh...that is so wild. VERY funny. I wish sometimes that Liv was more interested in her nintendo/game boy. She plays for maybe ten minutes and then gets bored and wants to do something messy like dig rocks out of our garden, wash them in MY SINK and then paint them and make pet rock families. I would LOVE to have her just sprawl on the sofa for a half hour of so, lost in a screen. I have even turned the television on myself a few times to hopefully escape any ideas she might have of cajoling me into playing chutes and ladders again.

LOL!!! I think it's great when kids are at that age when they still aren't adept at getting away with things.
