Young Guys Sticking Together
I'm dropping my 7.12 year old son off at CCD (Church school) yesterday...
And the 'old coot' parking lot attendant (yes, traffic is INSANE - they need one/two) asked me,
"Hey, wait a minute....you're not his father are you?"
CaptiousNut - No. He's my little brother.
Of course then my son ruined it.
On my way out the guy accosted me again because he just couldn't believe that someone who looked like me was a father to a 7 year old.
Was he blind, dumb, and old? Perhaps.
Anyways this morning I had to have a talk with my son.
I told him that from now on....actually I ORDERED him, from now on to say that I was indeed his brother should that situation arise again.
And I told him that if the person asking is a female and he plays his part well....that I would take him out for an ice cream sundae.
When his sister got up this morning he ran over and eagerly announced, "Dad is now my brother!"
