"I sort of knew what to expect with the third girl, but I’m still on high alert all the time. They call me ‘Red Alert.’ If any of the kids werenear anything close to being dangerous, I would say, ‘Is she touchingthat?’ or ‘Watch out!’ And the whole family would go, ‘Red alert! Redalert!’ I guess I can be a bit worried sometimes."

           — Matt Damon, on the family nickname he’s received from wife Lucy and mom Nancy in regards to parenting his daughters.

Thats funny, but you can never be to careful with children..Good for him!!

That’s hilarious!!! Those words seem to come out of the mouths of parents with toddlers more than any other age group. I know I’ve said those phrases thousands of times. So, it doesn’t suprise me Matt says them too (with his toddler).

I think it’s great that he is so concerned with his daughters. I know my DH is the same way and was very watchful of our daughters (now 12 & 14), however his brother is the exact opposite and will yell for his wife to watch the boys because he is “too busy” (watching TV). I am so tired of hearing when they cry that it’s ok, they’re just being boys!

You can NEVER be too careful with little ones. Better safe than sorry!

I absolutely adore that Matt speaks so lovingly of his WHOLE family, especially by refering to his stepdaughter as his own. Blended families are just as blessed and loving as any!

Ella, it means Dear Husband lol
according to UrbanDictionary.com, it could also mean Designated Hitter, but i think Dear Husband makes more sense in this situation!

hope I’m right Christa!
