All Pro Dad: Troy Vincent [2:41 PM]
BuffaloBills.com reports: 'BB: There's no blueprint for raising children.
TV: There's no protocol. Because every human being, every child is different. There is no script. When that kid's going to be in a good mood, bad mood, when the kid gets hungry, when he doesn't get hungry … there's no script. There's no manual. There's no agenda that you can set, and say, "Okay, this is what we're going to do today." You can plan it that way (laughs). But the reality is, when the kid wakes up, is he sick? Are Taron's allergies acting up? Do we have to make a stop here? Do we have to make a stop here? Troy's not feeling well. Desire's not feeling well today. So those things change. Circumstances come up and you have to adjust. The most important thing is patience.'
