On Growing Up

While playing on the bed with the kids.

Me: Josh, what do you want to be when you grow up?

Josh: A teenager!

Josh: Ma? So after I become a teenager, then I get married?
Me: Well no. (hell no! in my mind) A few years after your teen years then maybe you can start thinking about getting married.
Josh: Where will I live when I get married? Will I live in another house?
Me: Yes, of course.
Josh: Who will build my house?
Me: Well you're gonna have to pay for it and then the carpenters can build it for you.
Josh: What will the telephone number in my house be?
Me: We won't know until then.
Josh: Be sure to call me up OK?
