So, we're sitting at the dinner table and my wonderful 4 year old daughter, Leah, has been asking for a pet lately. Here is how the conversation went:
Leah: "Can we get a kitty?"
Mrs. Cheesehead: "Well, if you can make your daddy not be allergic to them we can."
Leah: "How about a doggie?"
Mrs. Cheesehead: "Well, if you can make mommy not like dogs then you can. But you have a better chance at making daddy not allergic to cats."
Leah: "Well, if I had a different daddy then I could get a kitty."
Mrs. Cheesehead (laughing): "What would we do with this daddy then?"
Leah: "He would get a poodle."
There you have it. My kids get a new dad, my wife gets a new husband and they all get the cat that they want. My parting gift: a poodle. Yep, I'm bringing this up when she wants a car.
