Being a good dad

I got the movie "Searching for Bobby Fisher" from the library. Steve and Andrew were taking a nap, so I was going to watch it with Jack. He asked me what it was about and I said: "It's about a little boy who loves chess, but his dad wants him to play baseball."

Jack shook his head sadly and said: "That is *not* being a good dad."

"Oh yeah? What would a good dad do?"

"He should want him to play chess."

This made me very, very, very happy.

Also: It made me giggle when the movie started (in black and white) and Jack said with deep concern, "Oh no. Will it ever get color?" Thankfully, it did just a few minutes into it. :)
