Do You Know What Your Children Are Doing? Hell, Me Neither

Last year, Ms. Diva stole Tiny T’s pucker powder candy. I don’t mean she placed it in her bag, mistakenly thinking it was her candy. I don’t mean she accidentally tripped and the candy fell into her mouth. I mean she stole it – on purpose, intentionally – she meant to do it. I was mortified, she was in big trouble. We dealt with it.

This year, I found out from Perky Girl that she is bossy at school and often informs people they cannot sit with her unless they wear bedazzled pants.

Meanwhile, according to Tiny J, Mr. Smartypants was involved with that bunch of boys, who got into trouble this week at soccer practice for putting bees in a bottle, shaking them up and turning them loose in the coach’s general direction. Tiny J. didn’t actually see Smartypants do this, but HyperKid told LoudKid who told Nosy N, who told Tiny J. – right after making him swear not to tell anyone else.   Smartypants has admitted to giving the boys the bottle but claims that was the extent of his involvement.  Of course, I’ll need to investigate before deciding to ship him to military school – but deep down, I don’t believe he’s so innocent.

Same thing with State Rep. Mike Kernell, whose son is purportedly rumored to have possibly had some alleged involvement in the Palin email hack. Of course, there’s no proof, documentation, or real evidence as of yet.  Nevertheless, the media (new and old) is all in a tizzy reporting that Kernell is aware of the rumors… but will not address them.

Really? What exactly did we expect him to say? Would he offer an adamant denial on his son’s behalf? No. Most parents realize they may not always know what their kids are doing, why they do it or if they realize they were going to be in trouble when they did it – if they did it at all. Plain and simple: much like you cannot determine guilt without evidence… as a parent, you tend not to determine innocence without it either.

So, perhaps they expected Kernell to agree with the claims and offer up some quick psychoanalysis on his son?

“Well, in my Psychoanalytic theory, which stems from the work of Sigmund Freud and the basic philosophies of liberal Democrats, if these allegations are true, then it might be possible that… “

Get real. Calm down and wait for the investigation to turn up some facts.  I, for one, cannot wait for this mess will work itself out – because I just know my 401K will be instantly improved due to the effort. It will won’t it? It won’t? Oh. Well, at least we can all be optimistic that Palin has learned her lesson and will be less likely to share top secret military strategy with Pentagon officials from a web-based mail account that a 13-year old online gamer could hack.

And no, I’m not saying what the unauthorized password changer did was cool: it’s not. It’s illegal.  In fact, I’m glad the feds will be taking this unauthorized password changing seriously and since the law applies evenly to all: they might be interested in knowing my yahoo mail account was hacked last year. There was nothing in there but Old Navy ads, but that’s not the point. The law is the law, therefore, I’ll be expecting the FBI to contact me soon.

Thursdays are best for me.
