Of all the things I've come to love about parenting, one of my favorites is the power to train Cheeky for comedy.
We've managed to coax some pretty amusing behavior out of her, even if she doesn't always know why it's funny.
For example, Oodgie has programmed Cheeky to greet people with a hearty, somewhat condescending, "Helloooo, Newman."
For my part, I've prepared her for college by having her throw her arms up in the air and yell, "Woo hoo! Party!" Once I hand her a red plastic cup and teach her to tap the keg the image will be complete.
My next task is to get her to yell "Oi! Oi! Oi!" on cue, like right after I say, "Cause I'm T.N.T!" or "In every alley way, and every avenue!" Then, once football season starts it will be, "C'MON, REF! YOU SUCK!"
So let's open up the floor for requests: If you have something you'd like Cheeky to say, let me know! I'll record it and send it to you!
