Kevin came to me yesterday looking quite happy and proud, and said:
-Daddy told me, that I am pathetic.
He had a huge grin on his face. I was puzzled. Somehow I couldn’t believe that my American husband would describe his own son with such disgraceful epithets.
He stood even straighter and obviously waited for my response. My brain was searching for a good line. Suddenly I had a revelation, sort of.
-Maybe daddy said, that you are prophetic.
Kevin, my right brained, slightly dyslectic son, answered:
-That’s what I just said, didn’t I?
When you talk to Kevin, make sure you are hearing his heart and thoughts more clearly then the words. The words might be slightly mispronounced.
I will write more about “prophetic pathetic” later on. I like the subject 🙂
For the record. American husband said: prophetic.
