One Reason Being a Parent is CoolPosted: August 25, 2007
So we’re reading stories tonight before bed. It was just Aidan and me.
Renee was at a friend’s, and she took Erin with her.
Boys’ Night like these usually start with a meal at McDonalds, which is always a treat.
So, we got back, did bath with no issues and then it was story time.
After Brown Bear, Brown Bear and a Thomas book, it was time for One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish — which is my favorite book to read.
So we’re going through it, having fun and we get to the part about having a Zans.
Now, usually, if Renee is reading the book, Aidan will say, “I don’t have a Zans. I have a can opener.”
Can’t argue with that.
But, tonight, it was pure joy to hear him say the following:
“I don’t have a Zans, Daddy.”
“I know, bud.”
“I have you and Mommy and Erin.”
I mean, how cool is that?
What else? I got nothin’.
