The cast: Jeremy, Grammy, Gramps, Leo (5) and Grady (2)
The scene: Son Jeremy and daughter-in-law Katrina's living room.
Props: Two plastic indoor kid-sized soccer goals.
Grady wants both soccer goals. He got them first. Leo wants to play with one. Grady does not want to share with Leo, and is having a meltdown. Jeremy calls Leo to come talk to him.
Leo: I know what you are going to say to me.
Jeremy: What I am going to say to you?
Leo: "Grady is only two years old. Even though he should share with you, is it worth having him scream and yell? Can't you just wait?"
Jeremy: You are right. That is exactly what I was going to say. You are going to be a good daddy some day.
Watching your children be parents. Does it get any better?
