Aaron asked late last week if we could do something fun together. Talked to Mom, and we decided we’d get Here Comes the Boom and watch it together. (Meh. It’s all right.) Fun family time, though.

So he came back to me Sunday and said “Dad, the movie was good, but it wasn’t really what I had in mind.”

“Yeah? What did you have in mind?”

“Well, I was thinking just you and me could get sushi or something.”

Ah. He meant one-on-one time. I’m glad he came back and gave me another shot at it. He’s a more subtle kid than Nathan. He’s not obfuscatory; just more nuanced about some things.

He asked for sushi and miniature golf, just the two of us. You got it, man. Looking forward to it.

And I’m sorry I missed it the first time. I’ll work on that.

    1. Kudos to him though, for following up. ^_^

    2. Thank you, MrsDragon. It becomes ever more clear to me how short this time is.

    3. You know today, you said you thought I was a cool mom for trying to facilitate a way for my teenagers to spend significant summer time with their friends. I think episodes as this make you an equally cool dad.

    4. Aww, thanks, ‘seester. I try hard.
