Conversation yesterday, as I was driving my 8 year old daughter home from gymnastics.
8 yr old - "Can we go to the park after supper?"
Me - "That's up to your dad because I have to go to a parent council meeting after supper. You'll have to ask him."
8 yr old - "I know what to do, just do something that Daddy really wants to do and then after, when he's happy, ask him for what you want!"
Me - laughing uproariously "Where did you learn that?!"
8 yr old - "I don't know, tv maybe?"
Me - "Well, you're right, that works with men."
8 yr old - "But don't they know that you're doing that?"
Me - "They know about it, but it doesn't seem to matter to them."
8 yr old - "Do they teach you how to do that in school?"
Me - "No, it's just something you learn how to do as you get older."
