"When I get big...."

Tonight we were talking with Brody at the dinner table...he often sees things he wants to do and says..."when I get big...I will be doing that" Such as go to school...work...and other random things...tonight he looked at Mike and he said..."When I get big...I'm going to have a wheelchair like you Dad." He said it so matter of fact...I didn't know how to respond...Mike smiled...and said..."Well...it's fun to be in a wheelchair...but it's more fun to run and play!" It took some convincing...but Brody finally agreed. I hadn't really pictured us having that conversation with our son...but I guess it makes sense...it's another thing in his daddy's life that Brody sees as...well cool! I sure love those guys!

That is so sweet--a total acceptance of his daddy the way he is. I love it! Great response, too! You are both such great parents.

He is such a sweet little boy. I had similar experience before and it made me laugh and tear up a little at the same time. I think the children are the perfect example of pure love. They love us for who we are no matter what.

I wish we could all just look at everything with the eyes of a child. Life is so simple to them! Great answer guys!
