Type Casting

We are out of town visiting friends and they have two girls that are Corey's age. The kids get along well and play all day long. Yesterday, Corey comes running in the room.

Corey: "Daddy, I need to the Ninetendo DS."
Me: "I think it is on the table in the family room. But you shouldn't be playing your DS when you are all playing together."
Corey: "No, it's okay. We're playing house."
Me: "I don't understand. Why do you need need the DS?"

Corey: "I'm playing the daddy so I need to be on the computer."

SIGH.

Probably because we've had similar things happen too.

Gulp. I've got that going on in MY house, too.

Sigh...

My wife is upstairs watching SNL, and I'm online. I'd say they got it right.

On the computer, watching ESPN, drinking a beer and eating chips?

I suspect the computer has taken the place of the newspaper our fathers read. However, I somehow seem to lack this free time when my kids are home.

I'd love to know who they were patterning themselves after?
