I love my son. Of course, that goes without saying. However, there are times when my heart swells, choirs burst forth and the sky opens just for me.
The other day was one of those times. Picture, if you will, the following scenario:
Calvin & Joep are in the kitchen in the morning. Calvin asks his father for a banana for breakfast. Joep hands him a banana that, much to Calvin''s dismay, does NOT have a sticker on it. Calvin asks his father if he could please have a banana with a sticker on it, AS IF HE SHOULD HAVE TO ASK.
Joep, not wanting to die on this particular hill, eats the non-stickered banana and gives Calvin the superior stickered banana.
Calvin immediately removes the sticker, hands it to Joep, asks him if he could please throw it away, and goes on his merry way.
Joep proceeds to create several craters on the kitchen counter tops with his forehead.
Do you hear that? That''s the choir I was telling you about earlier. God, I love this kid.
