So, ever since my son was little, we have had this game where I say: “Guess what” and he says “What?” and I say “I love you”. Cheesy I know, but, like any good parent I succomb to the cheese for my kids. As he has gotten older, he has started to say in that 5 year old sarcastic drawl: “you love me” complete with rolling his eyes and shaking his head. Well, yesterday, I said “Guess what?” and he got all excited and said “What?” and I replied with my normal response. He then said, “Ahhhh, I thought you were going to say something good this time like we were getting popcorn or going to Legoland.” Interesting that he thinks there is a direct comparison in the level of happiness these two things can bring him.
I just wanted to add that when I reread my last post with my husband he made a remark about how dirty my little joke was. It was not until that point that I realized just exactly what I had said. Those people who truly know me are rolling on the floor laughing because they know how totally naive I can be. In college, I would say a little north fellas. Usually. Mind you, sometimes….
