Dispatches from the Frontlines of Fatherhood: Donut Wisdom

Scott William Carter   August 26, 2009  

A conversation with my three-year-old son this morning, when he was eating a donut (something that rarely happens):

Me:  I don’t want to hear any whining, though.  Whiners don’t get donuts.

Son:  I’m not a baby. Babies cry like a baby.

Me:  That’s true.  It’s okay to cry sometimes, though.  Just not when eating donuts.

Son:  Yeah.  Babies don’t get to eat donuts.

Me:  No, they don’t.

Son:  I like donuts.
