My 11 year old Spencer often thinks he has life all figured out. And sometimes his ‘thinking out loud’ comments completely crack me up.
Yesterday, he announced he noticed a distinct difference between moms and dads. You see, I was urging him to put on his seat belt when I picked him up from his day at the Homeschool academy.
“Why do I have to wear it?” he questioned.
“Spencer, because I love you and don’t want you to get hurt if we have an accident. Besides, it is against the law not to wear one,” I replied.
“See!” he said. “Moms and dads are so different! You moms get all mushy and care about us getting hurt and following the rules and laws like good citizens. Dads are so different.”
When I asked him why he thought that, he quipped, “Because, when dad tells me to put on my seat belt and I ask him why I have to, he doesn’t go all mushy, he just says cause he doesn’t want to pay the $75 fine if we are caught by the cops!”
