Hey there. You know, I like to mess around, I like to have a good time, and if I can bring somewhat of a smile to someone, I'll do try my best to make it happen. Considering that I'm usually with my family, they're my audience. Whether I'm in the kitchen slicing tomatoes with a samurai sword, doing the robot at the most inconvenient of places, or just making a funny comment about stuff, I'm always rewarded with smiles, a "you're funny, daddy", and some eye rolling from the wife. lol It's all in good nature and in good fun so I don't mind. But recently, I've come to think if it's a little too much now that the kids are a little older.
This week, yesterday, actually, I walked my oldest daughter (9 yrs) across the street to her school. In the middle of the street, I yell out, "Let's robot!" and I start doing the robot while crossing the street. Mind you there were no cars around so it was safe... not like I stopped traffic or anything of that sort. Anyways, my young one yelled out, "Daddy, NOOOOOOOO!", clearly embarrassed by the episode. I stopped and once we crossed the street she scurried off with her friend. lol
It's funny because a few years ago, I would get an "Oh my god, daddy... really?", and the kids would join in or just laugh but yesterday I got a "NOOOOOOOO". lol Just last month, she said, "Daddy, not at the store. Do the robot at home." lmao!!! Maybe I'm embarrassing the young one a little too much. My youngest daughter (5) loves it. She's do the robot with me if I bust the moves. I guess a little bit of the quirkiness in me was transferred to her.
