Share a funny story with us:
I do have a funny story about my son Ambrose. On a beautiful summer day in August we were planning to head to the beach but he really wanted to watch TV. He had a pretty good melt down, but we stuck to the plan and I took him and Wynn to the lake and we ended up having a lot of fun. A few days later he brought me this picture and said mater-of-factly "this is a picture of mean daddy that doesn't let me watch TV when I want to".
