It's a nice mid-70s day. I got nothing going on for a couple hours, so I decide to wash a couple cars.

My 7 year old daughter wants to help. I tell her if she wants to get wet, she has to put on her bathing suit. She says, "No, I want to spray the hose." I say "Okay" and we start washing the car.

I quickly discover the phrase "Point it at the car." means nothing to her until its too late. It goes down like this:

"Point it at the car. Point it at the car. Point it at the car."

Face full of water.

"Sorry Daddy."

Repeat.

Not that I wouldn't put it past her, after all she describes herself as one of the three class clowns of her class, but I think it was more her watching it "rain" on the car, then the basketball hoop, then the garage... And I just happened to be in the line of fire.

I'm just making a conscious effort not to be like my dad. My dad is a really great guy, but helping him consists mainly of hanging out while he does the work.

BTW, If anyone wants to add to this thread with stories of their kids, feel free.

You've got to get her back when she least expects it. Do it! And tell us about it!

When my daughter was 9 she thought that doing the same thing would be real funny.... So me, being a good sport, when she was in the the shower I set up a nice fermenting bucket of water and ICE.... Turned off the hot water at the hot water tank..... and over the shower curtain went 3 gallons of ice water on top of an unsuspecting 9 year old, man did she SCREAM BLOODY MURDER ..Bahhaaaaaa It was funny as all get out! She, 6years later wont let me forget it..Ohhh man the funny kid stories I could tell... I have 3 of them little buggers!

Cheers
Jay

My oldest daughter once pierced my ear for father's day -- with a fish hook! She was no more that 10 years old. She asked for help with her bait, and when I was done, she stood right behind me and casted -- embedding the hook past the barb into the top of my left ear. Didn't hurt until my buddy had to remove it later! Not really mischievous, but one of those daddy-daughter moments...and funny as hell!

You didn't live in Huntington Beach at the time, did you? I had to pull a fish hook out of a friend's ear a few years ago.

I think I am more ready for kids than I ever have been. I know this because I thought this story was super cute. 8 years ago I would read this and thought "and you do this to yourself why?"
