There are some moments in parenting so sublime that you never want it to end. I have had many, more than I can recount here and now. However, I just had one with Patrick that truly tickled me. So I’ll share that.
We went for a drive downtown, to see the city lights. He wanted to stop and eat at the Varsity, so we did. (I’m suffering quite a bit thanks to my MK dog…but it’s worth it!)
On the way home, Pnut cranked the tunes, playing DJ. He queued up Outkast’s Ms. Jackson. (Side note: I have been listening to Outkast since they released Stankonia. I love their music.) We sang and rapped along with the entire song. We both know every word. It delights me to no end that he loves them as much as I do. We shared that moment and our love of music. Did I mention he is the greatest, coolest, sweetest kid ever?
