I had forgotten, until recently, what a cute age five can be. Here are a couple of things my five year-old has said to me the past few days:
(While watching me put sprouts on my sandwich)
5 yo: "I don't like sprouts, but when I'm a Dad I'll like them... or when I'm 10."
(While snuggling in bed trying to get to sleep)
5 yo: "The baby's not cute."
Me: "Yes he is, and so are you! Will you ever get to a point when you stop being cute?"
5 yo: "When we're bigger."
Me: "And you won't need to be cute anymore?"
5 yo: "Because we'll be strong."
I love my kids!
