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."
