Marty's Joke of the Day

Marty's Joke of the day is an internet column that I've written for more than 5 years.
I tell humorous stories about my "sweet wife" and raising our 4 young sons, named #1, #2, #3, and #4.
After 5 years of story telling, in August of 2005, doctors found a brain tumor in son #4.
Our focus here has changed little as we still try to find humor in our lives.

Church Bullies

Tuesday, December 07, 2004

Happy Pear Harbor day!

Last Sunday we were in church, and it always seems that we’re
telling the kids, “shhh!!” The boys are actually pretty good, but
sometimes son #4 is still a bit loud. He was trying to get son #1’s
attention. He wanted son #1 to watch him do something, but we kept
shushing him, and son #1 looked like he didn’t care if he saw what
son #4 was doing or not. All of a sudden, son #4 grabbed son #1 by
the tie, pulled him down so he was nose to nose with him, and in a
husky, but firm whisper said, “You watch me!”

So how are you supposed to discipline a kid when you’re laughing?

Enjoy today’s Jokes!

Reader Comment Section:

Dear Marty,
I’m writing to commend you for raising your boys right. You
penalize yourself for using the less choice words. In an issue
earlier this summer, you went back and paid for a slurpee that was
missed. In various other ways, you’ve shown that you are going out
of your way to teach your children character (and your sweet wife
undoubtedly helps). I hate to say it, but that’s becoming less
common these days, and it is certainly an uphill battle. If you
have days when you feel discouraged, please remember that the JOTD
readers notice and applaud your efforts.
Marianne R.
P.S. Good luck with the new job!
