More than you know, son. More than you know.
Sometimes when my family is out for a walk, we ask the boys to “buddy up” and hold hands in pairs, as a way to help keep everyone together.
My 3-year-old and 6-year-old were buddies, walking along hand-in-hand, when my three year old looked back at me.
“Daddy’s not holding hands with anyone,” he said. “He doesn’t have a buddy.”
The six-year-old looked back at me.
“Daddy’s holding a beer,” he said.
Then he added: “Beer is Daddy’s buddy.”
Yes. Yes it is.
