If I could do it all over again
O Canada are homanatay lad! – Our great country’s national anthem according to a three year old; not a version translated in a foreign language – although it may as well be.
How do you explain what the meaning of Canada is to a three year old? Does he know what a country is? Does he even care what our Gross National Product is? Surprisingly, my three year old completely understood and better yet, he explained to me why NDP leader Jack Layton would not shave his trademark moustache. It had something to do with marketing and how facial hair relates to the everyday man. Currently I’m enrolling my prodigy son in med school. The sooner the better, because having five kids doesn’t help with keeping the savings account full.
