What is a Hot Dad to do????? Continued

In an effort to keep you all updated on posts of importance, I thought I would fill you in on the latest home visit from the girl who can’t keep her hands to herself.

On Wednesday as I was heading to the front door to greet our 13 year old as she came home from school, when I saw ‘her’ head coming in the front door. I don’t know what came over me but I did an instant 180 and bolted straight back to my desk. After settling my head a bit I walked out, gave a passing fist bump to our daughter and then to ‘the girl’. I immediately went up stairs and just sat on the edge of my bed.

A few minutes later, Mariah came up and asked me what my pained look was for. I explained that I was …chicken to go down stairs…as I did not want any possibility of this child’s inappropriate behavior to present itself. She chuckled and told me to man up.

After thinking about it for a few more minutes and realizing that she was right and I was acting like a big old pussy…I went back down stairs and returned to my desk and normal after school activities.

Surprisingly enough, the two teens stayed at the table doing their homework and chatting with one another. Two hours later, when the girl’s parents showed up to bring her home, I realized that either my ‘fist bump and walk away’ worked or she was not in a ‘friendly’ mood…either way, I am happy that there was no incident to report this time.

I have decided…and have told all of the kids…I am now the fist bump dad. All of the kid’s friends get a fist bump every time they come over…nothing less, nothing more.

Sounds like a good plan :)

Great plan, Camper. I can definitely tell you that something is NOT right with these girls. Either affection-starved or "overly affectionate" step-dad to put it nicely. Stay with the fist bump.

Perfect! You rock! But you already knew that, now didn't you?

Thanks for the props ladies...and Missty, yeah...I know!!

Hopefully she got the hint - fist bumps when she's around, then hugs for the kids when she's gone!

Keith Wilcox said...

That's an excellent policy. Or you know you could always go the Japanese way and bow instead :-)

LiteralDan said...

Just make sure you don't get taken down for punching a kid who's just after your millions!

TentCamper said...

swirl - It is gonna be fist bumps for all!

Keith - I am 42...my lower back would not support the constant bowing!

Dan - A. I always pretend that they have hurt MY fist when I do it.
B. Either way...I'd be glad to split my $10 with them...that's all I got. If they want millions, I'll send them your way.

I was thinking the other day about this story and wondering what the outcome was. Thanks for the update. A fist bump for ya.

Good for you pal. Well handled

AFter reading part 1, I think they fist bums all the way around is a good idea.
It will probably help for her to see a stern, parental side of you. If it doesn't work, I'd go back to hidig in the bedroom.

It sounds like you found a good solution- I hope it keeps working for you!

Good idea. Hope it continues to work, who needs to be uncomfortable in their own home?
