Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.

Rainy day Texas Hold 'em

Rain all day. So we do what any redneck family would do on a long holiday weekend: we played No Limit Texas Hold'em Poker .... with our 6-year-old.

He kicked our asses the first game.

Army of Dad won the second game and I won the final game.

Hot Rod isn't too bad at poker. I've been teaching him for the past few months just playing cards with no chips or anything. He watches us play Party Poker and poker tournaments on TV and we explain things to him. The poker game today was a good learning lesson because we made him count his chips - by ones, fives and tens. So, he had a ball playing with mom and dad while also working on his math. Win-win situation. Except for the two games I lost, but you know what I mean.

    If your 5-year-old son knows the odds on a king jack suited before the flop ... you might be a redneck

    He's 6 now, but that's not the point.

    He's a smart redneck to be able to play and WIN. He still hasn't mastered the finer points of knowing when to call and when to fold, but he has the general idea.
