I’ll have the Shirley Temple.

We took the boys out to dinner. Hoping to keep it modest, we told them they could order sodas, but let’s not have Shirley Temples today. They looked a little disappointed.

Max sat there thinking hard. Then he said, “I’ll get a glass of water instead of a soda. If you divide that price in half and add half to the price of a soda, it’s enough for my brothers to each have a Shirley Temple.”

It’s moments like this…

  1. Gulp. How sweet is he? Just remember to recall this moment when you want to slap him up the side of the head for some stupid thing he is bound to do. Snort.

  2. He is a sweetie. Paula, I’ll try to remember. I’m sure it won’t be easy!

    Ezer, thanks! He might have learned something from A & me, but that kid is one of a kind!

    Mom – I know! (Me too 🙂

  3. I really want you and Andrew to write a book on parenting. Your boys are nice, gracious and sweet. They are all gentlemen. Watching Davis hold Finley’s hand the other night and walk around showing her the cats was just too precious. What is your secret for getting great kids!??? Besides of course being great parents! : – )

  4. Awwww, what a sweet guy!

    I agree with the others – you two should write a parenting book! (Novices like me really need it!)

  5. Thanks Megan. Problem is, if I write a book, can I only include the GOOD stuff we’ve done?

    Steakbellie – so glad!

    Momo – Thanks! You’re going to be great 🙂
