Overheard: Parenting

Abe hands Ben a drink pouch.

Abe: “Be careful you don’t spill—

Ben: “Dad. You’re parenting. Again.”

Abe: “Oh. Sorry. It won’t happen again.”

Minutes go by.

Ben: “Dad, could I have a sandwich?”

Abe: “So now I CAN be a parent.”

Ben: “Sure, when I get positive results.”

This is better than TV.

This happens at my house too, only since it's with girls, I get the snark for free! No additional cost! Kids.

It seems like Abe is getting a dose of his own medicine; I'm recalling his telling you he wanted you at the ready, like a runner, at all times.
Ben is a funny guy.
