My son, Henrik, and his friends are really into building stuff.

It is great that they have interest in such constructive things.  Here what they were able to do with trains:  

And I want to point out that they did not have a kit but did it from scratch!  How can I not be proud of him?

I'm not so sure about their remote control car project, however.  I must admit it was probably the most thrilling experience of my entire life even surpassing the first time I held him.  It took me hours to recover.  My mechanic says that the car is fine and my doctor said we can skip the heart stress test as I'm sure to pass it.  I'm glad to say that the pickup truck is undented but I totally need a new garage.  It would not be fair not to mention that it was scheduled to
be demolished because it was infested with termites.

I certainly don't want to discourage Henrik nor his friends from such constructive play but have they gone too far?  

Should they be spanked?

Here's what happened:

At least they aren't holed up inside playing video games.

Looks like there was no real harm and so a good talking to is in order. I will ask Henrik and company to approved all projects through me from now on.

However, I really should have spanked when they borrowed my crane without permission. (How else did they loop the train tracks?)

Also, why am I wasting time and money sending Henrik to school? Looks like he is ready to sit for his PE license and get on with life.

The question is "Should they be spanked?"  The answer is Do I DARE?!!

And yes the fact they are NOT playing video games IS a big deal!!



Did Thomas Edisons parents feel the same way about him. I am dumbstruck. I need to lie down


I am glad they are not stuck indoors playing computer/video games. But I am not sure they are currently on the right track. There are certain points in life where a change of direction is needed and I consider one is signalled now. Consequently their little cabooses are going to be painted red.


Their next challenge.

"to design, build AND TEAM TEST an effective spanking machine.


Henrik and any of the boys for whom I have authority are going to be worn out. I warned them last time that they have to leave my car street legal, and what would happen if they didn't.

Though honestly, MM has the best idea so far.

"In the end, it's just a story. But if you ask me, it's all true."


Too bad, MM...

Someone has already beaten the boys to it and all...
