What’s the ultimate compliment for a dad?

What’s the ultimate compliment for a dad?

This morning my 8-year-old son gave me what I consider the ultimate compliment to a father.

I was driving him to school and we were discussing what Star Wars family stickers to get for our car.

I asked him what I should be as a dad.

I half expected Jabba The Hutt – but he replied:

“Dad – you’d be half Yoda – half Han Solo because you’re wise like Yoda and cool like Han Solo”


While I’m not claiming any truth in my son’s observation I was mighty chuffed and puffed up with pride.

He then gave a very cheeky smile and added:

Dad you’re half Han Solo – half Yoda….half as good looking as Han Solo – half as old as Yoda.”

 (for those who don’t know – Yoda is around 900 years old!)

He cracks me up!
