Stop my Whiny son.

My son just had 2 of his cub scout friends come over for the day and one of them was here for the last 2 days. And both days started the same, 45 minutes of fart/burp jokes then more weird behavior about boobs. They would hold up balls or anything circular and would say hey look “boobs”. This was really funny since I have never seen him act this way with other people. It was funny though to see what kids his age are thinking about. Not everything I found out was funny about his behavior. Continue reading

Building rounder kids

For the last year I have volunteered as a Den Leader for the Cub Scouts. It’s also a good spot to mention that I have never been in Scouts or to a meeting before, so it’s all new to me. I made a great plan for the kids and even kept it exciting. I am looking for a full-time job and I would really enjoy volunteering again as a den leader. I plan on getting the scouts to be more community helpful with community service projects and doing some fundraising. Even though some of the kids are moody little drama queens.  I plan is that it will show the scouts that each of us can help change someone else life.Kayaking

I want my son to know that we acknowledge that he is growing up and to celebrate it we decided to get him a pocket knife. Which turned into a multi-tool because the pocket knives all looked really sharp and were about 5 inches long at Wal-Mart.  So just like the Berlin Wall a big NO from my girlfriend, till we saw a Winchester Multi-Tool.

I don’t know much about brands except Gerber, Bear Grylls and Black and Decker, but not much about toughness of tools. The only thing I really know about tools is that you get what you pay for, buy a quality tool and you only have to buy it once.  But in this case it’s not the brand of tool but more the act of relieving  the tool. Maybe even in his head its more of an understanding that he is becoming a man. Continue reading
