    They are 8 and 10. We just felt like we would wait until they were a little bit older, most of that stuff goes over their head anyway. But also it was just weird for them to watch dad on the television... it was really fun. It actually lightened the mood for my wife and I to have them laughing at everybody's ridiculousness. It kind of helped with the melancholy aspect of saying goodbye to the show and my fictional family.

When the judge said part of the probation was that we had to get married Josten smiled at me and I was turning red. The judge said, 'You might want to check with her first.' Josten said that because my face was red he thought I was OK with it, but then the judge made me stand up and asked me if I was OK with it. I said yes. People were laughing behind me and the bailiff had to say 'order in the court.' It was embarrassing.
