Despite the “terrible 2’s” and upcoming “shoot me in the face 3’s”, we’ll keep Caelan around because of stuff like this!
Caelan finds a pair of ear muffs
CAELAN: What are these?
BILL: Ear muffs.
CAELAN: My muff?
BILL: No, EAR muffs.
A few days later…
BILL: What are these?
Bill is laying on the couch…
CAELAN: Do you want me to stay a few minutes?
BILL: Yes, please.
Caelan kneels next to Bill and strokes his hair like we do when we put Caelan to bed after he asks us to “stay a few minutes”
CAELAN: Next time we’ll go to the zoo. And probably there will be a lion there. A big one. And a rooster. And a kitty cat.
CAELAN: I want a special treat! I want an egg and a newspaper and a foot!
BILL: I have a headache.
CAELAN: A headache?
BILL: My head hurts.
CAELAN: Where does it hurt Daddy?
BILL [pointing to his head]: Right here.
Caelan kisses Bill’s forehead.
CAELAN: Is it better now?
BILL: No, it still hurts.
Caelan kisses Bill’s forehead again.
CAELAN: Now is it better?
BILL: Yes, it’s better.
