Random Parenting Moments

I couldn't find a thread that seemed right so.....

Beest would have been so happy and excited that one of the sprogs is starting to play Dungeons and Dragons. And he would have laughed his arse off at which one....... neither of us would have predicted this.

Of course, first thing she did was buy a set or two of pretty dice Our online conversation went something like this.....

well when I find Daddy's dice you can use those if you like, that might be nice
oh yes I'd like that
but in the meanwhile you can borrow mine if you want. In fact you can keep the turquoise ones.... and a few other spares I have that will make you a full set. Or you could just get some online, they're not too expensive. You could go to local game store to get some, but way cheaper online and much more choice. Look here's a nice turquoise swirly set for $X.
Those are nice
...or there's this kind of thing. Or this. All of these sets have the 7 dice you need really.
Oops i just bought those turquoise ones, they're so pretty.
I wonder if you can get tiny dice, seeing as you like tiny things. Then you'll have nice tiny things even if you decide you don't like D&D. Oh look, yes you can, here are some just like the ones I showed you before, only tiny. ......Oh, you bought some already? OK Nevermind...
oops, just bought the mini ones too, they're so cute

I hope she checks for traps before she opens the packages

There should be condoms for "Check Out Now" buttons to avoid such oopses?

She has a friend group who have game nights and one of them has decided the non-initiates are ready to move away from boards and cards.... said individual is a grad student. Strangely enough the gaming group beest introduced me to was also led by graduates grasping at the few remaining wisps of not real adult life....

Random parenting moment #45

SonofV texted me very late last night saying that he FUCKING loves me and that he's SUPER DRUNK.

I para-spell to preserve the anonymity of his textthumbs endrunkenicity.

I was touched.

Right, the bail request often follows such outpouring of affection.

It's nothing short of a miracle that a game that's not played on a screen has survived this long.
