I took my kids to the playground today while we had another showing on the house. Usually I'm the one standing around pushing my son on the swing. Today, I felt like swinging.
I parked myself in the swing and started pumping.
"Wait, Mama," Bubba said. "Let me push you!"
"You don't have to do that. I know how to swing," I said.
"But I want to."
"Okay." I let him push.
Five minutes later he was done.
"Do you think I'll be a good daddy someday?" he asked. "Because I'm a really good swing pusher!"
"Absolutely," I said. "You'll be fantastic!"
This made me smile Sherry, perhaps you don't know I have a weakness for children's slides. much to the embarrasssment of my family.....must get out more and find some new ones.ReplyDelete
I remember the picture of you on the slide. I think it's great you still do that. I'm going to be just like you, playing on the slides, when I grow up! ;)Delete
A good daddy knows how to push the swing and when to stop.ReplyDelete
Bubba will definitely be a good daddy!Delete
haha 5 minutes then let the kids play by themselves, way to beReplyDelete
He knows just how long to do it!Delete
Aw. That's so cute! I didn't know little boys cared about being daddies. I know many older boys want anything but...ReplyDelete
I guess he's planning ahead. ;)Delete
sure he'll make a great oneReplyDelete
That's the first prerequisite!ReplyDelete
Absolutely! Every daddy has to know how to push a swing. ;)Delete
Awww! That is an important part, but more so that he was considerate enough to do it. :)ReplyDelete
He's a very thoughtful young man!Delete
It's remarkable that he'd even ask such a question at that age. Something tells me he'll be a fantastic dad some day, because he sure knows how to be a fantastic kid.ReplyDelete
You've got that right! ;)Delete
Aww! This is so sweet! :)ReplyDelete
I thought so, too. It isn't every day your kid wants to push you on a swing!Delete
Cute and thoughtful... your boy is wise, beyond his years...ReplyDelete

Ah, that makes me smile that he's already thinking about the qualities needed for a good dad. :)ReplyDelete
Isn't that funny?Delete
Bubba's the best! He's ready for his first full-sized adult-child. =]ReplyDelete
Ah...so sweet and adorable. Bubba is already thinking of the time when he will be a daddy!ReplyDelete
It's nice that he's thinking ahead!Delete
