Tuesday, I was on the phone, telling my dad that we were getting ready to go somewhere "fun" for my birthday. My sweet five year old overheard. He piped up with anticipation in his voice, "Mom, are we going to Chuck E. Cheese for your birthday?"
My quick and sullen reply came without a pause, "No, we are not going to Chuck E. Cheese for my birthday."
Rolling laughter came from the other end of the phone, as Dad enjoyed the conversation from his perspective.
My dad continued to laugh as he reminded me of the time when I was little and I just insisted that , "Mommy really wants this baby doll for Christmas!"
It does seem that the more things change, the more they stay the same. Glad we can still make you laugh, Dad!
