Conversations with kids. You never know what kind of gems you’ll be gifted. The following transpired last week with both kids driving to my son’s golf lesson.
“Daddy, our home isn't very fun,” said my daughter in a dejected tone of voice from the back seat of the car.
“No fun? What do you mean? You’ve got that cool tent set up in the office for you and your stuffed animals,” I countered kind of surprised. “You’ve got your own room. That’s pretty good. And your big girl bed.” She was very pleased with herself when we removed the rails from her bed a month ago.
“Well, some day you’ll own your own house,” I continued after a pause. “Do you know when that’s going to be?”
“After college,” said my son from his booster seat in the back.
“That’s right. And after college you’ll get a job, get your own place to live, have your own family, and buy your own house too,” I said wrapping things up.
“Dad, of all the things, I’m not looking forward to kissing the bride,” said my boy.
I suggested to him that some day he may change his mind. He appeared skeptical.
