My non-parent friends often ask me what it’s like to have children. I usually answer with something sarcastic or sentimental. Or both, just to confuse them. Because screw them and their “free will.”
But I’ve decided it’s time I let them in on my life as a dad.
In this continuing series, I will journey around the internet to find examples of exactly what it’s like being a parent. Today, I want to show you a glimpse of my conversations with my five year-old son as reenacted by a classic scene from the movie “Uncle Buck.”
Note: John Candy is handling this like a pro. We, however, don’t always do the same.
Any questions? Go ahead and post your experience talking to your kids so we can discuss this for all who may be curious. And without kids of their own.
If you get asked what it’s like to be a parent, I suggest sharing this post to give them a peek into the parenting world. Or just dump a bag of angry badgers on them.
