Do you ever think about your answer to the question, “Why did you have kids?”
At least not anymore. But back before I had kids, I thought about it a bit. My answer was always pretty vague. Something like, “I just want to.” I didn’t have a list of reasons. There was nothing logical about it. I just wanted to.
Crappy Papa and I discussed it sometimes. His reasons were also unexplainable. Just a desire to do so. So we did.
Of course the moment I held Crappy Boy in my arms for the first time I thought, “Yep. This is why I did this. Totally worth it.” I always assumed Crappy Papa felt the same.
Now skip to the present…
One day, a LEGO® set arrives in the mail for Crappy Boy. A belated birthday present. He shows it to us.
Pretty neat. It is a “big boy” LEGO® set.
Star Wars something or other.
Crappy Papa seems excited.
Overly excited. He drops what he was doing and says he’ll build it with him immediately.
But before he goes off to play, he turns to me and says:
Crappy Papa is giddy.
So that explains it.
He was kidding. At least I think.
Happy Thanksgiving to all those who celebrate. If you were expecting a Thanksgiving themed post I think you should lower your expectations. I’m rarely timely.
Although I did write one last year called Thanksgiving Turkey. So you can read that one and not be sad.
Also, I’ve been posting less frequently because of technical difficulties. Both with the site and also my time machine is acting up again. I think everything is working now. At least until I post this and then surely it will break. (But it will all be okay. I have a web ninja on my side. Huge thanks to Sarah the ninja for dealing with my crazy.)
