Like (LOOOONEY) father, like (CURAAAZY) sons.


Remember THIS?

Alfred Bandura must have gotten it right. His Social Learning Theory basically states that children learn and do what they observe. Todd and Alec are demonstrating this quite nicely thanks to their exemplar father. I suppose having your mother laugh her head off and think you're funny enough to grab the camera counts as the appreciable reinforcement that will certainly encourage this type of behavior. [Guilty.] Looks like we're going to have generations of pale, shirtless guitar heroes. What a legacy.

This message is from Jeff:

It is probably more of your influence, seeing that Bandura is from Alberta! You thought you were the only famous psychologist from wild rose country. What I'm trying to say is if your kids are wacko...blame the shrink parent. Are we sure you can't be blamed for the topless part?

That is wonderful. I love it!

So cute and so funny! But boy am I glad we don't play shirtless around my place! LOL

Scott said...

And from whom did Brent get his craziness? NOT ME! In this case NOT father like son. I categorically deny every having strummed a guitar--or pretended to strum a guitar--shirtless. (And if you've ever seen me shirtless, you know why.)

Cutest pictures ever.

Wild! We don't claim any part of Brent's shirtless guitarist antics.

Love it!

Classic! These boys defiantly have a similar sense of humor to their father! I love it.
