“They think I do not know a buttload of crap about the Gospel, but I do!”

I came home from work a couple of days ago and my 2 year old daughter came running straight up to me with a DVD in her hands. The conversation went something like this:

K: “What’s that?”

TBYC: “That’s one of Daddy’s DVDs – ‘Nacho Libre’. I don’t think you’d like it.”

K: “What’s that man’s name?” (pointing to the cover)

TBYC: “Jack Black”.

K: “Jack Black. Funny man?”

TBYC: “Yes, Daddy thinks he’s funny. He’s dressed up as a wrestler.”

K: “Yes, wrestler…. Watch Jack Black now.”

TBYC: “I don’t think you’d like it K. Do you want to watch Little Einsteins or Mickey?”

K: “No, watch Jack Black with Daddy now please.”

I gave in and put on the DVD after I’d gotten changed out of my suit. To my amazement, K and I watched over half an hour of it before H interjected that maybe we should both come to the kitchen for something to eat. K was fascinated with the whole thing and for the first time in my life as a daddy, my enjoyment of a DVD was actually enhanced by the oft-repeated questions of “Who’s that?”, “Name?”, “Doing?” and “Where?” K is a real pleasure to live with at the moment and it helps that she is starting to like nearly everything I like e.g. Jack Black films, Harry Hill, The Apprentice (the exception is football, which H is successfully turning her against during Euro 2008).
