360 degree parenting evaluation

While the children were having breakfast this morning, the following discussion took place:
7-year old: "When I become a Dad, I want to be one who exercises every day and is fit like Mum is."

9-year old: "Actually, Dad is not too big given that he doesn't do any exercise." [Hmm, heroically thin, I like that argument.]

7-year old: "But so and so's Dad is really quite strong." [You know, I am standing right here!]

9-year old: "Yeah but our Dad's a better parent, no matter how large." [Guess who's getting an extra cookie!]
