Applying Rules

To my son Tommy,

One thing I love about you is your sense of fairness when considering the rules. You haven't learned or built in or accepted all the exceptions to the rules yet. If you have to brush your teeth and do your vitamin every day, you make sure your dad does it too. Even teddy bears that are attending school for "bring your teddy bear" day have to buckle up. Luckily you didn't make me get another car seat. I long for the days where everything was clear and rules were simple and applied universally and the world wasn't so messy with caveats and exceptions and loopholes. Ahh, youth!

Sincerely with love from your dad,
