One of our favorite Sound of Music songs came on in the car, "I need someone older and wiser, telling me what to do…"
"Remember, you don't need a man telling you what to do when you grow up," I said to Joy, age 8.
"Then why do you tell me what to do?" she retorted.
"It's different. I'm your Pa. I'll always tell you what to do."
The Wife piped in, "The toilet light is broken, dear."
"I'll get it fixed right away," I immediately replied.
