how to tell if your child is an addict


There are always telltale signs.

We think that our youngest may be addicted to Blues Clues. He talks about it in his sleep, tossing and turning in the night and murmuring about needing 3 clues. Clutching his stuffed Blue puppy to his chest like a mother protecting her young.

He speaks in blueese. Buhbuhbuh. He pants and wags his tail.

The mailman is fearful to approach the house, because the baby will jam his face to the window and scream MAILTIME! Poor fella even dropped his load of letters and ran one day.

He becomes highly agitated at the mention of college. If you'll remember, Steve left for college entrusting his younger brother Joe to manage the brood at home. Tucker is terrified of the word c-o-l-l-e-g-e. Obviously not taking a liking to Joe as well as Steve.

The salt and pepper shaker are expected to speak and not only that, but with French accents.

We are forced to instigate a cat and mouse game of finding three clues to determine what the child wants for dinner.

And God forbid the baby looses his handy dandy notebook!

Addicted? Nah ... in love!

Ha ha ha! My son is addicted to playing racing games on the Wii. It's the first thing he mentions in the morning, I've begun to wonder if we should stage an intervention. Oh, and PS... Joe is my favorite. ;D

That's hilarious. I was looking at the pic thinking "Boy, Tuck is growing up... and getting blonder. Those blond Camerons." ;) Glad to know I wasn't alone thinking it was another of the boys.

Love it..... my #4 opens the freezers at grocery stores and leaves a "paw pint" on the foggy window. :)
