The man sat our boys down to talk before leaving on his business trip. He went over the rules and expectations that would be in place while he was gone.
"You boys are going to have to be the men-of-the-house until I get back. Do you know what that means?" he asked.
"Yeah." they answered half-heartedly while looking at each other.
Wondering if he was really getting through to the youngest, the man asked, "What exactly does it mean to be the man-of-the house?"
The youngest, looking more grown than he should, sat up straight in his chair. He looked his father in the eyes and answered,
"It means mom is still in charge."
The middle child shrugged his shoulders while he nodded in agreement.
The man looked at me. With a crooked smile and suitcase in hand he said, "Well, my work here is done."
Aw, my babies are all grown up.
It's a proud moment for this "head-of-the-house". ;)
Happy Sunday, friends.
