Christmas: The day grown men get a chance to play with toys and it's not weird.

See what I mean. Christmas is were adults get to act like kids by playing with the toys they spent their hard earned money on for their children. Being the good father that I am, I decided my boys needed NERF guns. And by my boys, I of course mean me. If the last 72 hours have taught me anything, it's that everyone needs a NERF gun in their life. There is nothing more satisfying than shooting your kids and or spouse and releasing some frustration. Be sure to note that they will shoot you back, so be prepared.

The awesome thing about the guns we bought is that they have velcro on the darts thereby preventing your kid from cheating when you're playing dart tag. Memo to my kids and all the other little munchkins your age: We (people in our late 20's early 30's) make the toys now and we know what cheating little turds we were when we were kids. So, don't think for a second we would create games that would allow you to cheat us...we're winners...always have been, always will be. Believe that.

I believe the phrase the kids are using these days is "pwned." Take that boy.

I got Thad some cool looking toys made by LEGO called Hero Factory. Essentially, these are the LEGO version of Transformers, but for about 1/3 of the cost. You can also take them all apart and mix and match the pieces. I thought this was cool until the little guy created this...whatever "it" is.

Now I'm no child psychologist (although I did get a B in that class in community college), but I don't think you need to be to think there might be something wrong with the 5 year old that created this thing. Scratch that, this thing is awesome and I'm actually a bit ticked off I didn't build it myself. I love my kid because he builds stuff like this. It shows imagination. I mean, the kid is related to me so what chance did he really have of avoiding having some major issues?

Anyway, here's his explanation of how this thing "kills the good guys." Pray for us.
