The Big Boy

Earlier today, I was sitting at the dining room table, aimlessly wandering around the Internet, when I heard the familiar light-footed stride of my son walking down the hallway.

Me: "Hey little dude.  What's up?"

Lil Sippy Cup: "Hey Dad."

Lil Sippy Cup comes around the table's edge and is now in full view.

Me: "Oh, you don't have pants on.  That's interesting."

Lil Sippy Cup (looking down at his outfit): "Yes, it is."

Me: "Just out of curiosity, why don't you have pants on?"

Lil Sippy Cup: "Because I took them off."

Me (putting my head down and lightly rubbing my temples): "I guess that makes sense."

Lil Sippy Cup (sweetly patting me on the leg): "Its ok Dad.  Don't worry.  You're a big boy."

My only hope is that one day, in the distant future, Lil Sippy Cup's children will be able to look back at these moments and fully appreciate why their grandfather refuses to wear pants when he comes over to visit.
