My three year old son’s current favorite toy is a little blue robot named Roboto … as of this morning anyway. It went like this:
Me: ok come sit down now and eat, we gotta get to school
My son: wait I need my robot
Me [as he’s sitting down]: what’s his name again?
My son: Robot-y
My son: ummm, yea.
Me: Mr. Roboto?
My son: No. Roboto
Me: Mr. Roboto is a Styx song
My son: why?
Me: because it’s about a Robot who’s a slave to the grind
My son: that’s not what Roboto does
Me: what does Roboto do?
My son: he’s eating his breakfast with me
There you have it … the magic of parenthood. And with that, here’s my theme song of the day.
