Lachlan stopped over this morning and told me he and his daddy were going to the Coffee Company for a smoothie. I gave him ten dollars and helped him stuff it down in the very bottom of his pants pocket. "This is a secret," I told him. "When you get to the cashier, pull out the ten dollars, hand it to the person behind the counter, and say, 'It's my treat today...Happy Father's Day Daddy!'"
It was a good idea...but he forgot. I guess he was too excited about getting a smoothie. Or maybe something else was going on. David says that about half way home Lachlan commented that he had some money...and was thinking about what he could spend it on!
