Clone chooses a career.

Last night I had some one on one time with Clone. Ktreva went to a local spa after work to get a message and Boopie finally was able to go over to a friends house to hang out. After I did the dishes and started dinner, I discovered that the poor boy had fallen asleep on the couch. EXHAUSTED I tell you, its hard work being four. It took me an hour of rousing him to get him awake and keep him that way. It didnt help I did my beer review in that time. Fortunately when I served him dinner he finally woke up and stayed awake.

I spent an hour making dinner. Fresh herb crusted salmon, steamed fresh asparagus with a roasted garlic glaze and a dinner salad. Of course I was the only one to enjoy it. Clone loved the salmon but could care less about the asparagus and salad. After some fighting I got him to eat enough of it to satisfy me. After dinner I asked if he wanted to play a game, but he said no. He just wanted to watch TV.

As I sat down on the couch he climbed up next to me. Then he climbed up onto my lap and together we watched Ghost Hunters. We would talk about what we saw on the TV and Id explain they were out proving there were no ghosts. (Hes four Im not going to tell him they are trying to find ghosts or hed never go to sleep) Hed ask questions, Id give him the answers if I had them or a couple of times we had to go look it up on the internet.

At the end of the night as I was putting him to bed he told me, When I get big like you dad, Im going to prove there are no ghosts. After that he told me I was the best dad in the world. Which I highly doubt, but it makes me feel good that he thinks that.

"he told me I was the best dad in the world" The highest compliment in the doesn't even come close. Keep the quote to look at when he becomes a teen ager :-)
