The second installment in my conversations with my youngest son (8). This was Friday’s:
Son: Do we have any felt tip pens at home?
Me: Sure. We’ve got that huge box of them in the conservatory on the shelves. Do you want to do some colouring?
Son: I can’t tell you why I need them.
Me: Oh, OK.
Son: Is it Father’s Day on Sunday?
Me: Yes. Yes it is. [smiles]
Happy Fathers’ Day to all you dads out there.
