You Have to Wait

Wife to son: “You will have to wait until you are older.”
What my son had to wait for I cannot remember but it a standard answer to many questions.
Son: “Oh, why do I always have to wait till I’m older?”
Wife: “That’s just the way life is.”
Son: “Is this the way life is or the way you make it?”
My son is now 6. I’m not looking forward to when he is 16.


  • Sure sounds like he's a handful !

    Must be tough to keep a straight face :)

  • Hi Ash
    Actually, he is a darling little boy...most of the time. What struck me about that exchange was that he is already getting the best of us in these arguments, and it will only get worse. If only he could be so smart with his friends.
