Now You're Daddy

I was playing baseball with our 3 1/2 year old the other night. He's got a nerf type bat, and I pitch an undersized soccer ball to him. He's getting pretty good at hitting it. He still gets easily frustrated when he swings and misses, so I'm constantly encouraging him in the negative. "Everybody misses, even the baseball players. When I used to play baseball, I used to miss a lot, too."

"You went to the game with the players?" he asked in a way I could tell that he was asking if I used to play.

"Yes, I used to play baseball, and I missed the ball, too."

Knowing I didn't play anymore he said, "But now you're daddy."
