A Little Understanding

Me: So, buddy…soon you’re going to be a big brother. Are you excited?

Al: Yes.

Me: But listen…when your little brother comes, sometimes Mummy’s going to be really busy. You know, she has to give him milk, and all that stuff. So you’ll be spending a lot of time with Daddy, okay?

Al: No, Daddy.

Me: No? But you know, Mummy’s going to be really busy. In fact, Daddy has to help a lot too. I’ll be changing a lot of diapers. Everybody’s going to be really busy.

Al: No, Daddy! Not busy. CRAZY.

Me: Uh…wow. So you understand.

Al: Yes.

I still don’t know whether to be very impressed or slightly disturbed. Maybe both.
