From my son, on his fourth birthday

Filed under: fatherhood — Brian @ 7:59 pm

I took the day off from work to hang around with him for his birthday. As I tucked him in for bed, I told him that I think four is a pretty good age. He replied, “Yeah. Four’s a good age for pretty much doing what you want.”



  1. No doubt. Wish I could say the same about 42.

  2. Tell him I said Happy Belated Birthday too!

  3. Yep, 4 is the best age!

    A Happy Birthday from me too. :-)

  4. Mmmhmm. Seems like you can get away with a lot more at that age. ;)

  5. Luckily, he’s more focused on “doing what you want,” than on “getting away with stuff.”

    Not exclusively, of course. But enough. I do not assume he’ll maintain this balance for long.

    I’ve passed along the well wishes – thanks!
