Geez what kind of parent do you think I am?). You know, he's cool. A child from a real Gen-Xer.

I'm trying to teach him to to devils. You know:

But...lets face it-- at 3 coordination is lacking. I'm bad enough, I just like to watch him stare at his fingers with his tongue sticking out wiggling his index. It makes me giggle.

"Come on Val. Devils! You just hold out these two fingers. Yeah, see me two little horns? You make two little horns."

This is what he came up with:
