We were driving in the car a couple of days ago and Kellan asked me if the band playing on the radio was famous. I replied that they were probably pretty famous. Kellan thought a moment and said, "I want to be famous." But when I asked him if he knew what it meant to be famous, he admitted that he didn't know.
It's actually not that hard to make a kid famous these days. With social media and YouTube, parents post videos of their kids doing everything from singing a hit song to acting loopy after dental surgery. Some parents have cornered the market on instant fame.
I enjoy sharing my experiences as a parent, but I think I'll save potentially embarrassing videos of Kellan for another time. Maybe for a girlfriend in the distant future.
