A conversation with D-: Nitpicking is genetic

The following snippet of a larger conversation with my 6-year-old son D- is twofold evidence that he is undoubtedly my son:

Me (advising him externally and myself internally): ...Whenever something seems like it's going to be hard, you just quit before you even start.

D-: No, I don't! I START things, and when it seems hard, THEN I quit.

You may enjoy my previous D- conversations, (3YO daughter) M- conversations, and (wife) J- conversations.

If that boy doesn't become a personal injury lawyer, it will be a great waste.

That is almost EXACTLY what I keep telling my wife. Eerie.
