I Think My Son is Alex Keaton
The following is a REAL conversation I had with my son one evening, after my husband called to be picked up from work:
Me: "Let's go pick up Daddy!"
My Son: "Nooooo. I want Dad to stay at work."
Me: "Why? Don't you want Daddy to come home? It's so fun when Daddy comes home!"
My Son: "I want dad to keep working and make lots of money."
My Son: "I want Daddy to make lots of money so we can buy expensive things."
I promise, we have never uttered those words or any attitude like unto them. (And I'm pretty sure, by "expensive things" he means $50 Lego sets).
As my brother put it, my husband's way has been paved to become a career man. This might be the only time a child has wished that his father spend more time at work.
