The scene: Hatchling falls down and hurts his knees on the hardwood.
Me: Will a cookie make it better? (in our house, dried figs are cookies...it may the most intelligent parenting choice I've made to date...)
Hatchling: I don't think so mommy.
Me: Let's try it. Here's a cookie.
H: (takes cookie and touches it to each knee)
I feel better Mommy!The scene: Being taken back to the dealership in the courtesy van after our 90,000 mi service.
H: Where we go next Mommy?
Me: To pick up our car.
H: I don't think so Mommy... it's too heavy. How you going to pick up?The scene: Getting our flu shots
H: wah (very half-hearted and lasting approximately a millisecond, and then, throwing both arms in the air)
I'm all better!
