The Bean is a morning person, and by morning i mean he rolls out of bed around 8 or 9. We usually try and let mom sleep because she is staying up with him during his first breakfast around 3:30am. I love waking up with the Beaner and having my morning coffee. The bean loves his coffee in the morning too, I personally think he puts WAY too much milk in his… but i don’t judge.
This morning over coffee me and the bean discussed something that was bothering him, his bedroom. The bean said that he loved his room and he thinks that mom did a wonderful job designing it, great color, good feng shui, great closet…
Dad – “Well then whats the problem big guy?”
Bean – “Dad, it just doesn’t have anything in it that’s COOL. I need something in there that makes my room cool dad!”
Dad – “Haha… Well bean, what do you think it is you need in there?”
Bean – “I don’t know dad… maybe a dart board or a poker table or something…”
Dad – “Well that’s what we have the man-cave for little buddy, but I think I know what your talking about let me see what I can do… But don’t tell your mother.”
Me and the Bean walking into his room after some “cool” has been added.
*Note – The Bean’s bedroom door always stays open, it doesn’t even have a doorknob.*
(yes, the doorknob is on the list of things to do)
Dad – “Now turn around Bean, and close your eyes.”
Dad – “Ok Beaner, open your eyes! I added a Pink Floyd and a Radiohead poster to the back of you door, two of the “coolest” bands just for you buddy. When you can hear a little better i will let you listen to them, but for now… you’ve got some cool.”
Dad – “What do you think? Do you feel a little better now?”
Bean – “Dad…(hiccup)…(burp)….(spit-up)… your the best!”
Dad – “But remember Beaner… Don’t tell your mom, or she might make you take all your “cool” stuff out to the man-cave.”
