Actual conversation with my 3 year old:
Charlie: "Poppy, I hope you are happy today."
Me: "Thank you Charlie. I wish to show you some form of affection, but I don't know what would be acceptable. May I shake your hand?"
[Hands are shaken]
Me: "May I give you a hug?"
[Hug is exchanged]
Me: "Do you want to box?"
Me: "Well, how about a hi-5, then?"
[High 5 is exchanged.]
According to my wife, this day should go down in family history as a day of positive breakthroughs for Charlie and me.
UPDATE! Today, Charlie did, indeed, wish to box, so I took on the three of them, including Little T, who came after me saying, "Peas Me?"
