I dunno about you guys, but the only way that anypony in the Busy-Lazy household can keep track of what’s going on is through an elaborate system of to-do lists. And by an elaborate system of to-do lists, I mean random Post-it notes scattered throughout the Shack to remind us what needs to get done.
Since it’s pretty much a 24/7 funfest at our house, most of the to-do lists involve reminders like “getting champagne” or “playing more often,” but sometimes we have more serious concerns like “world domination” and “destroying our enemies.”
Last night before bedtime, the boy and I went through his to-do list for the week, including a reminder to submit his payment for school snacks and to bring back his library books on Wednesday. My to-do list, on the other hand, was a bit more complicated, so I spared the boy the gory details.
The boy said, “Sometimes we don’t have time to have fun because we have too much work to do.” And I said, Yeah, that’s true, but that’s life, I guess. And the boy said, “It would better if we had one-hundred-million-dollars so that we could pay someone to do things so that we can play all of the time.” And I said, Well, I’m working on it.
As the boy was falling asleep, he said to me, “Dad, you and daddy are the best dad and daddy in the whole world.” And I said, Daddy is pretty cool, but I don’t think I’m the best dad. And the boy said, “You’re at least the second-best dad in the world.” And I said, OK, I’ll take that, then. Thanks.
