    How much Daddy?

    One day a little boy was anxiously waiting for his father to get home from work.

    As soon as the father arrived, the little boy ran to his father and asked him:

    “Daddy, how much do you earn per hour at work?”

    His father looked at him and said: “Look son, your mother doesn´t even know that.

    Now go off and don´t bother me with silly questions. I´m a little tired”.

    But, the little boy insisted: “Daddy, it´s just a simple question and I´m curious.

    How much do you earn per hour?”

    In the end, his father told his son that he earned 20€ per hour.

    Then his son asked him: Could you lend me 10€?”

    On hearing the question, the father got angry and said: “So, that´s why you want to know how much I earn!

    “Go to bed and don´t bother me anymore”.

    Later on, the father felt bad talking to his son in that way.

    Perhaps his son just wanted the money to buy something!

    So, he went to his son´s room and gave him the 10€. "I´m sorry for getting angry".

    “Thanks daddy. His son was so happy.

    Then his son took out another 10€ bill from under his pillow and said: “Now that I finally have 20€, could l buy an hour of your time?”

    The father was dumbfounded. He also felt guilty because he hardly spent time with his son, and often  wasted his time doing other unimportant things.

    The father then realized that his son was in fact the most important thing in his life.
