We had dinner with some friends that have children similar ages to my eldest. It was a great night cause the kids could have a ball wearing each other out. Interestingly though they were having so much fun that only the two year old girl slowed down.
Even on the drive home my four year old was still excited.
Finally after he had a drink I laid down the law and said he had to go to sleep. He became a bit puzzled, and said that he didn’t want to so why am I asking him to do that.
Mistakenly I said because I’m the Dad, and I say so.
He lowered his shaking head then defeatingly said, “I wish I could be the father first”.
