Parenting: We’re Doing It Right

Today, the Wife and kids were out and about doing their usual Wife/kids stuff.  I was at the PD fucking around on Facebook compiling important statistical data, a la Happy Medic, when I came across the Wife’s status update.  Why it was on Microsoft Access, I have no idea, but that’s not really germane to this post and I don’t appreciate the completely baseless allegation, I’ll have you know.

At any rate, they all saw a purple heart license plate and a Wounded Warrior Alumni bumper sticker.  The Wife told the McLets “an American Hero is driving that car”.  She went not to explain what a purple heart signified a bit about the Wounded Warrior Project.

This was the rest of the status update:

McLet#2 (four-years-old): ummm, excuse me, Mom, but that doesn’t look like a hero’s car.

The Wife: What do you think a hero’s car looks like? 

McLet#2: I don’t know. It’s missing something…. (she thinks for a second). Maybe flames?

McLet#1 (7-years-old): McLet #2, it’s not the car that makes the hero. Anyone can be a hero.

I know it’s weird that my eldest calls our middle child “McLet #2”, but it’s a habit we just can’t get her to break.

And I can’t argue that having flames on your car is pretty badass.  That kid is hep.

Also, McLet #1 and #2 are incredible.  (So is McLet #3 (2-years-old), by the way, but in this case was mysteriously silent.)
