True Love, Father Son Style

He wants to watch a video
His sister mentioned the word video and
Now he wants to watch a video and
He wants to make sure that I know he wants to watch a video so
He tells me he wants to watch a video
Over and over
Sometimes talking
Sometimes screaming
Sometimes chanting
I keep Explaining to him why we can’t watch a video and
Urging him to help us with the puzzle and
Eventually he does
A little but
He doesn’t stop talking about the video
Until it’s time for dinner and
He wants macaroni and cheese
This time I give him what he wants
Spooning it immediately onto his plate and
Relishing the moment
