From the mouths of babes (and some dad advice)
Another weekend passes, and another weekend with the kids.
My (just turned) seven-year-old son came out with a couple of crackers this week.
Firstly, I heard myself giving out some typical “dad” advice when later on my son said to me “Dad, every time I swallow my throat hurts.” My response? “Don’t swallow then.”
Later, I got asked “Dad, if you could be an animal what would you be?”
After some thought, I replied that I’d be a bird so that I could fly high in the skies. Figuring he’d have his own reasons for asking me, I turned the question back to him.
“What would you be, son?”
His answer was quick and confident: “I’d be a banana!” before I had time to question this, he finished “No, wait. I mean a monkey.”
Easy to get the two confused, I guess.
