I have come to realize some things as I have gotten older. I am NOT the fun parent. I never have been and I don't think I ever will be. I have fun with my kids, but I am not generally the one to think of the crazy fun things to do. That is Alan. He is the fun parent.
I am however FUNNY. My kids know it because I TELL them!!! (Just to be sure they know.)
Yesterday I asked Davin if I was funnier than his Dad and he shook his head (repeatedly) NO!! What?? Then, he threw his head back and laughed and laughed. I again asked the question. Maybe he did not realize what I was saying and thought I was asking if I was funner than Dad. Nope. Same response. Complete with the laughter at the end. Hmph!!!
