I thought I'd just quickly share today a frighteningly foreshadowing conversation that took place recently between my wife J- and my 2-year-old daughter M-:
M- (having built a few short stacks of Duplos on the table): Look Momma, this is a family!
J- (laying on the usual patronizing Parent voice): Oh, that's a verrry nice family.
M- (like all women*, craving drama): And this one is nasty.
J-: Oh, he shouldn't be nasty, he should be nice.
M- (dismissively): He can't help it, him's just nasty.
* Disclaimer: When I say "all women", I am of course merely employing a rhetorical flourish, instead of specifically stating the reality, which is that every single woman in the history of time lives and breathes through the creation, enhancement, or management of drama.
You may also enjoy my previous (5 YO son) D- conversations, (2YO daughter) M- conversations, and (wife) J- conversations.
