The Negotiator - Posted by Chris

The following conversation happened today shortly after I arrived home from work.

Christopher: "Yang Yang?" (translates to "Little Einsteins")
Me: "You want to watch Little Einsteins? That's up to Mama." (She knew how much TV he had already watched).
Lisa: "Maybe just one."
Christopher: "Kite one?" ("Dragon Kite" - one of his favorite episodes)
Me: "Ok, but you can only watch one show."
Christopher (all business): "No, two."

Sticky Hands - Posted by Chris

Stickum™ is a trademark adhesive promoted for used in athletic applications. In 1981 the NFL banned it's use because it gave receivers an unfair advantage.

For my son, sticky hands is not an advantage. Any time he has the slightest bit of crumbs or stickiness on his hands he'll say, "Hands" or "Sticky Hands" which translates to "I need something to wipe my hands" or "Help my hands are sticky!"

My wife and I often comment on how we've never seen a kid his age who is so particular about the cleanliness of his hands. Its a rare meal that he makes it though with wiping his hands at sometime during the meal. I'm not complaining it just kind of funny to see a two year old fret about some spaghetti sauce on his hands.

Cat - Posted by Chris

Luckily Christopher does not (yet) suffer from the extreme allergy to cats that I do.

If I were to do what he's doing in the picture, I would probably win a quick trip to the emergency room! In fact the last time I barely touched a cat (let along hugged a cat) I broke out with hives, had a severe asthma attack and spent the rest of the night in a Benadryl induced coma.

If you haven't already guessed our household will probably never have pets (at least not ones with fur!)
