I picked the little lady up from School today. She was in a good mood. I took her hand and made to head for the exit but she had other ideas.

No Daddy, No! Come and see this!

She dragged her old Daddy to the back of the Schoolyard. There was a copse of trees beyond.

What are we doing?

I said as enthusiastically as I could despite my body twitching for home and coffee.

This Daddy, come on!!

She dragged me in the bunch of trees and there I saw it. A big tyre tied to a tree, a swing. There were already a bunch of kids swinging like mad on it and screaming.

The little lady ran in and joined the screamers hanging from the old tyre which another kid was pushing with reckless abandon.

After twenty minutes of insane screaming and swinging, she was done.

Come on Daddy, let's go home. I'm starving.

We began walking home.

So did you know all those girls at the swing?

I was genuinely interested as she seemed to be having so much fun with them.

Yes Daddy, we play together in School.

Like a gang then?

I asked innocently.

A gang? Well, we are just friends. We like to play together. Sometimes the teacher tells us to be quiet because we have so much fun and scream so much!

Oh, I heard the screaming. My ears are still ringing from it. So if you are a gang. What is your gang name?

The little lady stopped skipping and looked at me as if I was a fool.

We aren't a gang, Daddy. We are just friends.

Well, little lady. It's like this, a gang has got to have a name. You said the teacher gave you into trouble... What about the Trouble Dawgs?

No, Daddy. Stop saying we're a gang. We are not a gang. Anyway. I don't like the name Trouble Dawgs.

You are right I suppose. It's not catchy enough. Hey, I know! What about, The T-Dawgs?

Stop it, Daddy. We are not a gang and we are not called anything.

I couldn't help myself, for the rest of the way home I relentlessly teased her about being in a gang called the T-Dawgs. By the time we arrived, she was getting rather annoyed about it.

The good lady met us just inside the door.

Hello my girl!! How was your day at School?

Before the little lady could reply I got in first.

Tell mummy-bear about the T-Dawgs!

The little lady threw her school bag down and stamped her foot furiously.

I AM NOT IN A GANG!!!!

She stormed off into the kitchen.

The good lady looked after her, concerned.

What on earth is going on there?

I made a chewing anchovies face.

Hmm, dunno. I think she might be getting in with a bad crowd in School?

Hey at least you were invited in. Parents are normally ignored when friends are around. Maybe you have to wait for that stage when she is a little older. Nothing wrong with name of the gang either.

·

I thought it was a fine name too. I will probably keep using it untili get kicked out of the house, lol!

Throw a party and invite her gang @meesterboom if they do some secret handshakes or peculiar hand signs, they they are a gang LOL :P

·

Haha. You are right. I will be watching for the signs!

Not in a gang? Right. That's what they all say. For all we know, the little lady was the one who organized the whole thing! The tire swing? A carefully constructed ruse to conceal the illegal goings on of their lot. But, you know what they say about the first rule. Kudos to the little lady for not letting up!

·

The first role, of trees. I know exactly what they say. I am waiting for her to come in with the gang colours anytime now!!

·
·

Gang colors? Pft! Wait till they roll out the secret handshakes!

·
·
·

We already have one!

·
·
·
·

Then you're further along than I thought!

That was hilarious. You're a man after my own heart. As daughter Zoe, whom I affectionately call 'number 3', was getting nearer to the big day of moving out of the house, momma @dreemit was weeping more and more. My response? I danced around like an idiot doing my best John Travolta and singing, "one less mouth to feed...I've got a new room for my office". I thought it was hilarious, the ladies not so much. All well, at least we can laugh at our own jokes. T-Dawgs...too funny!

Hehe, it's great laughing at your own jokes and it is equally great teasing the family!

I think I would do exactly the same in future at the prospect of a room becoming free!

The way i see it, they will adopt the name tomorrow hehe

·

I hope so. I hope I can tag all the gangs!! ;0(

Gangs these days are getting younger and younger members all the time. hahaha. Oh look the T-Dawgs are at it again, that is the 3rd park swing this week they have taken over. Their turf is spreading like wildfire....hahahaha now you just need to teach her some cool gang signs they can use. hahaha

·

Yeah and don't forget bandanas!! They are a positive must!! ;0)

·
·

oh for sure, you can't forget them. hahaha

·
·
·

I rock a fine Bandana. Any excuse and I fresh one on, lolz!

·
·
·
·

LOL awesome. I used to wear a banana more when I was younger, when I plated volleyball, and went rock climbing, pretty much to keep the sweat out of my eyes. lol Always good to rock the banana, and then put a hat on top as well. you know, for double protection...lol yes that is it.

·
·
·
·
·

Lol, now the hat is pushing it just a little bit!!! ;0)

·
·
·
·
·
·

lol yes yes hahaha. But it always amuses me when I see people wearing a bandana and a hat hehe.

·
·
·
·

·
·

Same here!

FutureBoomy is gonna come back and kick your arse if little lady becomes gangsta in high school XD

·

Ha. I know! That would be Karna and a half!!! I should mend my ways. Unless she brings in good gangsta money, lol!

I have always had a motto 'Freak teenagers out before they freak you out, that way you stay in control...' It looks like you are totally on the right path for the future hahaha

·

I'm doing it absolutely right then, weeeeee!!

Parenting at its best! Next: put a flat neodymium magnet under her plate before dinner. Such knife action.

·

Haha, I can see some smashing plate action there!

Hmmm... The little lady did not want to admit she is in the gang. The sound of T-Dawg is like a manly type of gang. I think that is why she did not like it. Upvoted!

·

I think she is hiding something. I will be checking her for tattoos!!

@meesterboom the little lady went to the father, is already in a gang, but never will admit
I wish you a beautiful night

·

Hehe, she will definitely never admit it now!

I heard Howie laughing heartily from the other room. When I went to be let in on the joke, I found him sitting at his desk with this post up on his screen, lol! You have the exact same brand of teasing little ladies!!

·

It's awesome eh, just can't stop till they go berserk!! :0)

I kinda like the T-Dawgs! She'll be telling the girls about the new name tomorrow. I can't wait to hear what she tells the good lady about the gang! LOL

·

She probably will. It will grow on her, lol!!

Bahahahahahaha.... Hilarious. What is the point of having kids if you can't rattle their cages a little bit? LOL. Enjoy it while you can though. Once she is a teen she will pay you back tenfold. Believe me, I know. LOL

·

Oh I am sure of it. Everyone I know with teens has said the same! For now, I will enjoy the teasing hehe!!

Thanks for sharing!

·

Your welcome!

Revenge for the brother thing?

·

Revenge is never far from a man's mind

·
·

All the more so a woman's. That includes girls.

Might want to watch out, Boomdawg old buddy. This could get ugly faster than Willard did after that fire.

·

And that was hella ugly!!
