That's the Way it Should Be

Because I am lazy and chose not to work at all ever again outside the home, Jeremiah has been working two jobs and we hardly ever get to see him here. We really miss him, but Isaac seems to be most affected by his absence. But when Jeremiah is home, Isaac pays scrutinous attention to his every move.

When Jeremiah came home from teaching the other day he quickly changed out of his shirt and tie into shorts and a t-shirt. We then sat down to eat together as a family - at about 3 in the afternoon, so I don't really know what meal it was... Anyway, Isaac looked at Jeremiah and noted out loud that Jeremiah had changed his shirt.

Isaac: Dad, did you get into a different shirt?

Jeremiah: Sure did.

Isaac: When you were naked?

(I'm assuming he meant naked in between changing clothes, since Isaac cannot change just his pants, or just his shirt. No, Isaac has to bare it all when he changes clothes...)

Jeremiah: Mm-hmm.

Isaac (looking Jeremiah over thoughtfully): I don't want to see you naked.

(Insert much spraying of food and beverage across the table from the laughter.)

Totally blog-worthy! Don't you love having a three year old around for the comedy?
