When You Raise a Child With Sarcasm...

Scene: For our Family Movie Night this week, we screened "Jurassic Park." After the movie, to the kids' great amusement, Tom darted about the living room pretending to be a velociraptor.

Tom: ScEEEEEEEeech! HaaRRRRkkkk! (pause to cock head, then dash across room) SCREEEEECH!

Me (to Bear): Aren't you glad that at least your mother is a sane and reasonable parent?

Bear: Wait. You're not my mother?

Very cute. I'm proud of my niece! I object to your use of the verb "screened", though. Unless you've installed a 100" screen with a 1080p HD Projector since my last visit, you simply "watched" said movie on your TV. Admittedly a nice TV, but hardly worthy of "screening" a movie.

Oh, for God's sake, "parnola" aka My Brother. Could you BE a bigger technology geek? And maybe I do have a 100" screen...guess you'll have to come visit to find out.

They do turn around and use it on you, don't they?!

Oooh snap.

Yeah, kids. They'll come back and bite you in the butt every time.

Tom sounds pretty funny, though!

I love those velociraptor impressions Tom does! Sometimes I wonder if he was a dinosaur in a previous life. :)

OMG-- stop. Laughing is making me cough (I had it before reading the post about you infecting everyone over the phone, so it wasn't you).

Oh, this made me laugh out loud. Let's never introduce Bear to Jane.
