Well, you can look at her face in the picture and see that she's nothing but trouble! It's when she brings that Barbie and Ken onboard planes with her. Airlines hate domestic disputes.

Not just on airplanes. My six year old son likes to announce himself to me by smacking me on the back. One time he even came up and right hooked me in the "not nice to hit people there" place.

I would have to announce to him what it feels like to get smacked on the back. . .and other not nice to hit places. I can't believe you let him get away with that the FIRST time he did it.

My relationship w/ my almost 9 yr old is very much like that between Clouseau and Kato (I am Clouseau).

My 5.5 yr old, she would totally be banned from planes if we turned her loose (which the rules do allow, only need to be 5 to be a solo passenger in the US).

For a while now I've thought they should use very well trained dogs as security on planes. The kids can go up and pet them, but the bad guys can die trying to get past them.

Based on my first 2 dogs. Sweethearts and like any kid that comes up to them, but not fond of door to door salesmen. (Hmm I guess I sould give any salesman who actually gets along with them a special chance to make a sale).
