A Rant by Nathan as told to Daddy
Transcribed by Mommy based on Daddy’s memory of the conversation
When I am a grown up* I am going to read stories to my kids every night. Until midnight.
And then Lexi will come upstairs and say, “What the heck are you doing? It is 10 minutes to midnight and you have to go to bed. If you don’t stop this you can’t go to dinner with us tomorrow!”
But I WILL go to dinner with them tomorrow.
I will not just read stories, I will TELL them stories and I will tell them about the Tickle Monster and tickle them if they are 2 boys and want to be tickled…..
…or maybe I will have two girls. Or maybe one boy and one girl.
(long pause. much thought.)
Maybe I will have one and one set of MULTIPLES!
*=This is his new thing when we make a decision he doesn’t agree with. He has also told us that he will never spank his kids, only tickle them when they have been bad. I told him good luck with that one.
