What does Dad do?

Last night I was feeding the kids dinner and Jake asks me, “Mom, what does Dad do?”

Me: “What do you mean, What does Dad do?”

Jake: “What does Dad do while I’m in bed?”

Me: “ He plays on the computer, watches football or hangs out with me.”

Jake: “He plaaaaaaayyys on the computer???”

Me: (laughing) “Yes.”

Jake: “Like Chess and stuff?” (Jake loves Chess)

Me: “Nooooo. Like Facebook and e-mail and things like that.”

Jake: “Oh.”

Then I leave the room and come back and ask, “Why didn’t you ask me what I do when you’re in bed?”

Jake: “Because I already know what you do.”

Me: “What do I do?”

Jake: “You clean, and blog and watch T.V.”  He said it like I was such a boring person.

Me: “How did you know?”

Jake: “I just know.”

Jake again: “Mom, does Dad ever play the Wii while I’m in bed?”

Me: (laughing again) “Sometimes.” 

Jake smiling: “He doooooeees??”

Me: “Is that what you really wanted to know?”

Jake: “Yay.”

I swear that boy goes to bed dreaming about the Wii.  Funny.  Why doesn’t he think I might secretly play the Wii while he’s sleeping?  I guess Dad is much more fun than Mom!
