CARRY ME

I just had one of those heart to heart moment with my 5 year old daughter early this afternoon as I was carrying her home after her class at STI Prep School. She's now in PREP.She asked me, "Daddy are you going out later?"


I said, "No." and then asked her why.


She said, "Cause I don't want you to go."


Then I said, "What if I have work to do or I have a job and I need to go out later?"


Then she said, "I have a job too."


"Yeah, what?" I asked her.


"My job is to go to school, your job is to carry me."


I smiled and blow in her ears.


She smiled back and then said, "Daddy, when I get older you'll still carry me to school, OK?"


"I can barely carry you right now, how can I carry you when you're older?" I protested.


"You'll be like as heavy as an elephant by then." Then we laughed.


And then I said "OK."
