My favorite parenting moments often turn out like this…
I’m sitting at the table on a lazy Sunday morning, reading the paper on my trusty PowerBook, when Adam comes galloping over with a great big grin… and woofing like Blue (of Blue’s Clues fame). He climbs up on the chair next to me and sticks out his tongue, like he’s going to give me a great big happy hello, canine style. After I politely refuse the gesture, he sneezes.
Before I have a chance to say anything my energetic two-year-old says, “bless me daddy.”
