Just sternly told Caleb to stop something-or-other that he was doing at the table. He cracked up irreverantly so I said, “I’m not being funny.” Serious face.Â Firm tone of voice.
Caleb tried pulling it together. Then I hear my wife’s voice:
This is your ‘not funny’ Daddy. Sometimes your daddy is not funny but thinks he’s funny. And sometimes he’s funny but thinks he’s not funny. I understand your confusion. But this is your “not funny” daddy.
Somewhat harsh. But too true.
We all totally cracked up.
