Sugar Daddy

Sofia came into our room this morning while we were having our morning coffee.

"Daddy, are you staying home today?" Big eyes looking up hopefully.

Daddy melts. "No, honey, I wish I was staying home today, but I have some meetings and then get to go to work." His face is sheer adoration at how sweet Sofia is to want him to stay home.

"Because, Daddy, on the days that you stay home I get to eat Cocoa Puffs, and I really want to eat Cocoa Puffs today."

Daddy looks astonished.... she didn't care about him spending time at home at all. He was just the means to an end.

Oh, that's funny!

Our kids seem to have a knack for keeping our egos in check -- usually dad's -- without them even knowing.
