Sitting at the computer looking for something new to write about. Looking for something to get the creative juices flowing. I found this gem from about 28 years ago. I think my son was about 4 years old.
My wife and I were both working and to help our daycare situation we worked staggered hours. I went to work early and picked up the kids in the afternoon while my wife works late. I usually had dinner ready when she got home from work and we then sat down for a family meal.
One particular Friday
evening, my wife and I and the kids were watching TV when we thought that
popcorn would be a good idea. My wife
went into the kitchen and pulled out the air popper from the cupboard. She was plugging it in and adding the popcorn
when my three-year-old son pulled up a chair to watch. My son was so amazed, that he had to remark,
"Gee, Mom, I didn't know you could cook."
Ah, from the mouths of babes. My wife is a great cook. It just worked out that at that time in our life I took on those duties.
Our son is an amazing kid. He was a happy, smiling kid. His nickname on one team was "Smiley".
