We rented a house with another family in Cape Cod. It's a nice place, but it does not get the YES Network...instead, they have something here called NESN, but there's really nothing on for some reason. And people don't seem to like my Yankees cap very much...strange.
The other family are old friends of ours, and in a weird way we are celebrating the five year anniversary of our last trip to Cape Cod. This trip has three new participants: Bud, and our friend's two children: a three-year-old and a sixteen-month-old...all girls. The toy situation is pretty funny, everyone's interested in everything. Bud grabs the younger sister's toy, which prompts me to give the "share" speech...and it went something like this...
"Bud, you should share. Because, if you share your toys with others, they will share your toys with you....and then everyone has more toys to play with!"
My friend hears this, and calls from the other room: "Sounds like communism to me." Touche'.
Why he's a good parent: apparently, about three weeks ago, the older daughter declares, "I want beers." Plural. Awesome.
P.S. I'm old. I gave the "you should share" speech. Last week I was the "adult" in "children below this height must be accompanied by an adult."
