Recently I was speaking to the_child about something, and she told me I was very weird. I said I wasn't that weird. the_child gave me a fishy stare, and said, "Daddy, you throw toast at the audience."

So much for the dignity of my parental office.

Meanwhile, Mother of the Child reports overhearing the_child on the phone with a friend from her third grade class last night. MoC reports the_child was interpreting a dream for her friend, projecting confidence and authority.

My daughter is interpreting dreams?

Don't worry, it'll get worse. My 13-year-old informed me recently that I'm not embarrassing to her, just disturbing.

But she meant it in the nicest possible way.

Well, at least you can have less fear that she'll grow up to be a Right Wing Conservative who enjoys working in cubicles.

As long as she thinks it's weird but sometimes okay to throw toast at an audience.

I believe my son was 8 the day he walked into the room in which I was working and stated matter of factly, "If you are ever curious about what your dreams mean or why you have them you can ask me because I know these things and I would like to help you." I never did ask him to interpret anything, it may have been interesting.
