In the spirit of Sam posts, here is a little interchange of my own with my seven year old, Sydney. We were looking at some baby pictures from around the time of the birth of Aaron, circa 1995.
Sydney: Daddy, where were you?
Daddy: We were at the hospital.
Sydney: Why were you wearing your glasses?
Daddy: I spent the night in the hospital room with Mommy, and I took my contacts out.
Sydney: No defense* Daddy, but those big glasses make you look kind of nerdy.
Daddy: You speak the truth, sweetheart.
*”No defense” is what Sydney says when she means to say “no offense.” Ashley and I are so amused by it that we have not yet corrected her. Aaron said “tennis-shoe” for “tissue” until about the age of 8, I think.
