Penny for Your Thoughts
Stephen and our little guy were having the best time playing the other day.
Stephen was really enjoying the interaction they had going on together. He was making funny faces and the baby was sticking out his tongue and babbling happily. He doesn't have a very extensive vocabulary. Our son I mean, not Stephen (ha, ha, ha). He says mama and bye, hello and bath, cheese and shoes. But, Stephen swears he hears him say, I love you daddy.
Stephen was overjoyed at how amused the baby was by the funny faces he was making. The baby kept sticking out his tongue and saying aaah. This happened over and over again. The more the baby stuck out his tongue and said aaah, the happier Stephen became... "My son and I are bonding!"... "I am the funniest daddy in the world!"
There Stephen was imagining again that his amused little fan was saying, aaah love you daddy!
But soon Stephen realized that the baby wasn't saying, aaah love you daddy at all.
Our little guy was simply, and very proudly, showing Stephen the penny he had placed on his tongue.
