Matthew was blaring his idog at the table the other evening. John gave him the choice of turning it down or off. Matthew refused to do either, so John turned the idog off and took it away from the table. Matthew of course had a meltdown and he yelled, “Daddy, you’re extinct!”. When I asked him a while later if he was still mad at Dad he said, “ I’m mad and he won’t listen to me and that is why he is extinct.” He makes me laugh with his storybook influenced view of the world around him.
