Comments: HB- Ringo

From age X to what I've heard is age 25, the part of the brain which has to do with decision making, and "is this a good idea?" type of stuff is still being formed. So the answer is that guys tend not to think things all the way through before they do them.

Heck, just watch an episode of Jackass. . .

Happy Birthday to Ringo!!

And not to discourage you...but wait for 16 and driving age...and 18 when they know every friggin' thing about everything! And are stupid enough to try to prove it.

They do grow so fast -- won't be long now before he's searching for your release button.

And someday he may even start thinking like a grown-up, but (as a guy) I assure you, that won't be happening soon.

Happy Bday Ringo!

Oh, and Bou? Just so you know....had 3 boys and actually the brain goes on vacation around 12 when the hormones hit. It usually kicks in about a decade later.

Brace yourself.......

Happy Birthday Ringo!

And Bou, he's just breaking you in slowly, just wait. You may want to start liking alcohol.

HB to Ringo!

And Bou- they are right- their brains stop working when the hormones kick in....good news is that most of the stuff you won't find out about until they get older....and then it's funny.

Happy Birthday Ringo!

Bou - if the worst he's done is carve his initials into a desk, you're doing pretty damn good. LOL. For that matter - thinking back to my school days... I don't remember any desks (except brand new ones) that hadn't had all kinds of crap craved on the desktop. I thought that's what kids did. I didn't because that never was of interest - but no one ever paid attention that I remember. In any other schools that wouldn't even get you a second glance much less onto the principal's radar.

The initial part cracks me up - it's amazing what kids don't think of when they are that age.

HB Ringo! That's a great story... I had to laugh, which made Brenna ask what was funny. Unfortunately, at 4, she doesn't see the humor.

All 14 year olds are knuckleheads, including the girls. I too was a knucklehead at 14 and didn't totally outgrow it until I hit my 30's. My wife may argue that I'm STILL a knucklehead. Teenagers will change their ways only when they get sick and tired of facing the consequences for their impulsive actions. Until then, it's a frustrating ride. So hang tough and love him anyway. BTW, happy B-day Ringo!!
