I debated whether or not to include this on my blog or not … BUT it is MY blog and I love being the father of four boys. So I couldn’t pass it up.
Communication with your children is essential, even about the little things in life. Whether it’s face to face or by text messages, I love the fact that I can talk to my boys about anything. Here is a conversation I just had, via “text messaging” with my oldest son, Taylor, who’s a college student in Lubbock. This “texting” conversation took place over about a 30 minute time frame…
Taylor: Today I attended the best lecture I ever attended.
Me: U being serious?
Taylor: Serious. It was a 30 minute lecture in chemistry about farting. My professor has a PhD in chemistry and not once did he say, “passing gas,” only fart!
Me: Dude, that’s incredible. Now that’s EXACTLY why we send you to college!!!!
Taylor: It was the funniest and most intelligent thing I’ve ever heard about farting.
Me: Has to have been great, because no one has ever used the words “intelligent” and “farting” in the same sentence.
Taylor: That’s why it contained SO much awesomeness.
Me: Better mark this day down as a great one.
Taylor: No doubt, September 15, 2010 – “Educational Fart Lecture.”
Me: Yip, red letter dates in the history of your life will include: your birth date, the day you became a Christian, your wedding day, the day you die, and then, September 15, 2010, educational fart lecture.
Taylor: I kind of feel like I have a PhD in farting now.
Me: I’m very proud son.
Taylor: TTYL Daddy-o
Me: 10-4 kid
