Father/Son Bonding

I don't know about you, but when my children were small, we were always searching for new ways to "bond" with our kids.

Perhaps reading a book together, going outside for a "catch", building legos, solving a jigsaw puzzle, or riding a bike.

As they grew older, this became a little more difficult because, of course, they were more interested in spending time with friends than with mom and dad.

Of course we found this impossible to believe, why, being the cool, hip, baby-boomer parents that we are.

Now, we're lucky if we can get them to go out to dinner with us, and if they do, I'm sure it has nothing to do with the fact that we pay.

So, imagine my excitement when the news flashed the story last night that Ryan and Redmond O'Neal were arrested together for possession of drugs.

What a fabulous bonding activity. Maybe they'll even get to share a jail cell. Think of the hours these two could have to spend together, just shmoozing and sharing and well, simply being together.

Wow, the 21st century continues to surprise and delight me.

I must remember this fine father/son activity when the boy outgrows wanting to have a catch.

Ah yes, I look forward to tipping back a beer and sharing our first fatty.

Hmmm...possession of drugs... Wonder if wheeling/dealing drugs is also their favorite pastime...
And if they bond so much, do you think they're willing to share the profits of the drug deals?

It's certainly a LOVE STORY gone sour. Ryan has no "mazel" anymore, not in his life, not with his kids...

I have given you one of those bloggy award thingies. Check my blog for details, please.

Lots of love and all that good stuff,

Is Redmond - Farrah's son? Well, honestly it didn't surprise knowing how screwed up Tatum is.

yes that is Farrah's son. I know I poked fun...but the truth is it's a very sad story for this whole family. Drugs, alcohol, fame have been the destruction of this family

How quick you are to judge! I just read that Ryan swears he's innocent. So there. (grin)
