My 2nd reason for loving Jonah

4 out of the 5 days of the week, my wife drops me off at work on her way out to Jonah's preschool and her part-time job. Normally, our ride involves listening to Thousand Foot Krutch's new album, "Welcome to the Masquerade," but today my four-year old let me listen to Fee's new album, "Hope Rising."

When we were approaching our downtown exit, Jonah piped in and said, "Mommy when you die and go to heaven..."

At this point we were thinking this is going to be an adorable question or a huge epiphany about heaven...

"...can I have this car?"

I bust out laughing. My 2003 Toyota Corolla already has 110,000 miles on it and some rust. By the time he's old enough to drive it, it may have 500,000 miles on it.

"Way to set your goals high, Jonah," I said back.
