Daddy, You Stressed Me Out a Little Bit

... out of the mouth of babes... in this case, our little boy Andre who just turned 4.

Background: Miles asked Andre after dinner what he learned in school and ascertained that he was having some difficulty differentiating between "B" and "D". That brought on a long dialogue about how he should study hard in order to go to big school etc etc...
Next scene: Andre was in the bathroom, Miles was in bed. Out of nowhere, Andre blurted out... "You know what Daddy? You stressed me out a little bit kanina."

Siyempre.. medyo nabigla si Miles because it showed that Andre already knew what stress was all about. Well.... Miles being Miles and unwilling to sugercoat, said something to the effect that a little bit of stress is good and that everyone experiences stress at some point in our lives, we just have to learn how to manage it.

Gosh....and they wonder why Andre is mature beyond his years. I'm just a bit sad that at such a tender age, he is aware of what stress is all about -- he must have picked the vibes for either one of us during our bad spells.

And where was I during all this? Burning the midnight oil at work. =(
