Joey: Mom, dad, I’m going to sleep in the other bed with cow.
Me and hubby: Ok.
Me: Are you sure? You’re not scared?
Joey: No, I’m not scared. I’m four now and cow is with me.
After five minutes…
Joey: I’m a little bit thirsty. Can I have some juice?
After another five minutes…
Joey: I’m a little bit thirsty. Can I have something else other than juice?
After a few more minutes…
Joey: Daddy, what will happen if the house is made of stone and wood, will the wind blow it away? (apparently referring to the three little pigs his daddy told him about earlier)
Daddy: No, it’s too strong to be blown away. Go to sleep.
Again, a little voice speaks out after a few more minutes…
Joey: Daddy, what if the house is made of wood?
Daddy: No, it’s still strong to be blown away. Go back to sleep.
Still, barely five minutes after:
Joey: Dad, what if the house is made of ice?
Me: (annoyed at being woken up many times over) Joey, are you a little bit scared? You want to sleep here with mom and dad?
Joey: (silent, thinking it over) Mom, I’m a little bit scared. Can I sleep on the bed?
Me: (I knew it! Kiddo’s too proud to admit he’s scared).
Hubby drinking mango juice after dinner last night…
Joey: Dad, do you like the mango juice? Because I don’t like mango juice.
Daddy: Yes, I like (drinks some more).
Joey: Dad, are you not going to finish the juice?
Joey: So I will drink it.
(Again, the kiddo will not admit he likes it).
Joey: Mom, can we go swimming in the pool?
Me: Ok, you should ask daddy to take you.
Joey: (comments) there are a lot of kids swimming.
Me: Yeah, you should ask daddy. Daddies always take babies to the pool. See? (Pointing to the pool where a lot of daddies were swimming with their kids)
Joey: (scanning the pool) But mom, there are also mommies. Look, there’s a mommy there wearing a black swimsuit!
Me: (takes Joey home)
