Preparing for Fatherhood

I took my 6 year old cousin out to lunch the other day. Here is part of the conversation that occurred.

Me: What are you asking for Christmas?
Cousin: An iPod.
Me: An iPod? Don't you already have one of those?
Cousin: No, that's my sister.
Me: Oh yeah, you're right.

[Moment of silence]

Me: You should ask for a Wii. It's really cool. My roommate has one. It's a lot of fun.
Cousin: My sister is asking for that.
Me: Then you should ask for World Peace for Christmas.
Cousin: What's world peace?
Me: ummm Ask your mom.
Cousin: Awww what's world peace?
Me: I can't tell you. You have to ask your mother.
Cousin: Awwww come on what is world peace?
Me: It's a secret and you have to ask your mom. I told her I wouldn't tell.
Cousin: WHAT is World Peace?
Me: So what are you learning is school?
Cousin: Subtraction.
It's never to early to start defering to mom. Oh and kids give people a reason to act like kids.
