Words of Wisdom…From a Six-Year-Old!

EJ & DAD
Me and Elijah

This past Saturday was hard. It all started when I woke up. That’s right, you know what I’m talking about! We’ve all been there before. We wake up on the proverbial “wrong side of the bed.”

Well, since becoming a father of a six- and two-year-old boys I’ve been learning a lot. You would think that I would be teaching…and I am at times…but these two boys tend to teach me! I had to admit to my six-year-old that I was in a bad mood on Saturday although he was fully aware of me! Here’s how the exchange went:

Me: I’m sorry for waking up on the wrong side of the bed this morning.

Son: Yeah, you did, but it’s ok.

Me: We’ll I woke up on the right side of the bed because thats the side I always sleep on.

Son: Yeah, but you woke up on the wrong side of the attitude!

Me: *Sigh!* Will you forgive me, Son?

Son: Of course I will! I love you, Dad!

Me: *Sob! Sob!*

I’ve been keeping myself on the right side of the attitude since then. Thank you, Elijah, for these words of wisdom.
