Bad Dad

My 4yr old (formerly known as the 3yr old) really likes Boba Fett.

And I have a Boba Fett that is still in its package which really pisses him off.

So I *accidentally* placed Boba a little bit out of reach. This created about an hour of fun for me…

    It’s important to teach them early that you have all the power and can make their lives a living hell.  ;-)

    Robert Browning, I think, said it first:

    Else what’s a heaven for?’

    he will get you back


    The only thing that would be cuter than this is if you had a hidden camera and you recorded his attempts to scale the wall.  And yes, he will definitely get you back when he’s older, taller and wiser.  A great fun pic.  Thank you so much.  

  • Brent Knowles

    Glad you enjoyed. And yes I know he will have his vengeance.

  • Brent Knowles

    So true.

    Bad dad! 1 hour? He’ll never forget the torture. :)

    Funny, I’m in the Bad Dad category too! My son left his brand new bike behind my Expedition (no backup camera) and I conveniently ran over it. 

    So he tells me…..

     “If I had the code to the garage door my bike wouldn’t have been behind your truck…..” We’ve all got that story….That was two months ago. We just got his bike fixed today… :-)I guess that makes me a bad dad….

    LOL that’s so evil but I love it!!!

  • Brent Knowles

    Ouch! I’m always worried about doing something like that.

  • Lisa Mason

    hahahaha nice! I have a 3 (soon to be 4) year old myself. She and my 5 year old are huge Star Wars fans and I can see this happening with them for sure. You’re giving me ideas here…

  • Brent Knowles

    Hehe. Have fun with them! 

  • Timothy Brand

    So I would totally do this =p I have a few Star Wars figures that my little ones keep asking for. Maybe I should try something like this!

  • Brent Knowles

    Do it!
