Synopsis: It's pretty hard to believe, but according to this little boy's grandma, his daddy was just like him once. Most of the time he was a sweet boy, but sometimes he raised a ruckus. He liked playing race car and superhero, and got mad when he lost a game, and never wanted to take a bath. And once upon a time, he, Daddy, was even sent to time-out.
