My 5yo likes to rhyme and will often repeat what you say with nonsense rhyming words. Today in a video message I got this sweet sentiment:
Mom: Say “we miss you daddy.”
5yo: We piss you paddy.
This is what it means to be a modern dad. (don’t take this too seriously)
How are you a modern dad/mom?
Last night right before I left Chandler’s room I told him this joke: “What did Batman bring to the party? PUNCH.” He giggled and I left.
This morning before I left for work I went in to say hi and the first thing he said was, “Dad, I think I got that joke you told me last night. You were talking about punching bad guys and fruit punch, right?”
It was the cutest thing, I just imagine this little 5-year-old laying awake in bed trying to figure this out and thinking, “What does it all mean!?”
I’m raising my boys to be feminists because when they grow up it will be a great way to get chicks.
