Male Role Models

Sis and I were worrying about Nephew not having enough in the way of good male role models while growing up. While Sis was still with her second husband, Nephew had a daddy; that was fine although his ass was lazy and didn't work and he didn't even do a good job as a "homemaker". When Sis moved back in with her parents, Nephew had Grandpa as a role model, however interesting that role model might be.

So when Sis and Nephew and I moved in together, Nephew's main male role models were Brock and Ash from Pokemon. Uncle Darkside wasn't hanging out much. Uncle Alan started to hang out with us, though, and then Dude moved in...

Nephew's got three regular guys to copy from now: Dude, Neighbor, and Alan, not to mention Darkside and Sis's Dave, whenever they show up.

I'm feeling much more secure as a parent-type person these days with all my backup. Whichever president it was who said "it takes a village to raise a child" was right.
