Phil’s latest

August 8, 2012

My son has been so quotable lately that I’m thinking of compiling his best sound bytes into a little book of some sort.

Tonight we took our bikes to a playground past some overgrown blackberry bushes. Phil didn’t like the bushes’ encroachment on the sidewalk.

“Should we come back sometime and trim these?” I asked.

“Sure,” he answered without hesitation. “You can do the work. I’ll bring the drinks.”

When I started laughing, he added, “You can put that in your book.”

Then we reached the playground, and he rode his bike without training wheels for the first time ever.

Some nights it’s great to be a dad.
