Last night, Liam was engaged in a destruction project: he was attempting to take apart a remote controlled car that was no longer working. The two main screws that held the top of the car together, though, were giving him difficulty so he came to me.
“Dad, do you think you can get these screws out?”
I wrestled with it for a few moments and loosened them.
“Wow–Grandma and mom tried and they couldn’t do it.”
“Well it’s a good thing you have a dad then, isn’t it?”
“Yeah,” he said. “I don’t know what I’d be without you.”
“Right back at you, bud,” I replied.
He smiled, then returned to dismantling his car.
