i cracked up over this article.... typical boys..

Video cameras around the home provide an added measure of security on multiple fronts for Cuba Gooding Jr. The 41-year-old actor revealed during a recent appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno that with a trampoline, a hockey rink, a batting cage and a boxing ring at his disposal, his 14-year-old son Spencer has become quite an accident-prone kid. While recovering from a broken arm, Spencer began urinating blood, necessitating yet another trip to the emergency room. “The doctor said, ‘What’s going on? He’s got a broken arm and he’s urinating blood. You’re beating the hell out of this kid,’” Cuba recalled. “I said, ‘No, no, no. Cut to the tape.”

“So I put the tape in, and there he was on the trampoline, doing backflips with his roller blades on, and a cast. I said, ‘I got you on tape, man! That’s right! Because you know I love you and everything, but they aren’t putting [me] in jail!’”

When asked by host Jay Leno if Spencer and his 11-year-old younger brother Mason have discovered girls yet, Cuba demurred, replying “that’s their own personal business.” While Cuba hasn’t yet had “the talk” with any of the kids from the sound of things, that talk will instead be had with their mom, Cuba’s wife of 15 years, Sara. “Spencer and Mason are two years apart, so when Spencer was 1 ½ it was cute for him to say ‘penis,’” Cuba explains. “Then when he was 4 ½, and Mason was 2 ½, he’d say something and Mason would repeat it, and Spencer would laugh…for an hour.” Sara stepped in, telling the boys that certain words can be said in the bathroom, only — which quickly made the bathroom the funniest room in their house!

Said Cuba,
“I’d come home and there’s all kinds of craziness coming from the bathroom…My wife said, ‘No no no, that’s where they talk like that.’ They’d be in there laughing, you know, ‘Penis…butt…fart!,’ [laughter] ‘Poopy, poopy!’ [laughter].”

In addition to the boys, Cuba and Sara are parents to 3-year-old daughter Piper Adelaide.

Freeze & Preserve Fresh Herbs in Olive OilKITCHEN TIP Do you use your freezer to preserve herbs, vegetables, or fruit? The freezer can be a powerful, overlooked method of preserving. Pesto, strawberry puree, tomato soup — stash them away now for colder times! One of my favorite ingredients, a handful of fresh herbs from the garden, is one of the simplest things to preserve in the freezer, and I just learned a new, better way to freeze herbs: In oil!I noticed a post at The Gardener's Eden (read it here) recommending that you freeze some herbs in oil. Why? Preserving herbs in oil reduces some of the browning and freezer burn that herbs can get in the freezer. It's also a great way to have herbs ready immediately for winter stews, roasts, soups, and potato dishes. These dishes usually c…
