Sundays Are For Sebastian #126

Sebastian is my seven-year old and he says some of the funniest things–we have no idea where he gets his material since his mother and I are rather boring, serious people.

Sebastian’s birthday was back in August, and his mother and brother were both out of town. So, the morning of, the conversation went something like this:

Me: “What do you want for your birthday dinner?”
Seba: “I dunno.”
Me: “Well, would you rather go out for dinner?”
Seba: “OK”

A few minutes later…

Seba: “How about we just have leftovers and play poker all night?”

So we did. I’m not sure that was my best parenting ever.

Seba left alone with a selfie stick:IMG_4673




About the drunken cyclist

I have been an occasional cycling tour guide in Europe for the past 20 years, visiting most of the wine regions of France. Through this "job" I developed a love for wine and the stories that often accompany the pulling of a cork. I live in Houston with my lovely wife and two wonderful sons.

    Perfect parenting skills, although from what I understood the idea of playing poker all night came from Sebastian. He gets extra points, and his Dad should work a little harder on his parenting skills…. HA! 😉

    With my poker face on: that’s a matter of opinion. I’m sure it’s a birthday he’ll remember for ever. Great Dad (i.e. good parent…)
