Happy things only.

My two year old son Corwin figured out what rhyming is last night.  He asked me for some cheese out of the fridge.  I picked up some, held it out and said “Now, what do we say?”

He said “Cheese, please……hahahAHAHAHAHAHAH!  Cheese please, cheese please! PLEASE! CHEESE!”

It was very funny even though it was almost 1 a.m. (he refuses to sleep some nights), especially since I remember how hard it was to get my older son to see the significance of things like that. (And if you’ve never done it, explaining exactly why a rhyme is clever is one of those very difficult first-principles type of things, the examination of which pretty much ruins the experience, like explaining a joke or a piece of art.) They are very different people.

    Sounds like my husband all, “it isn’t funny if I have to explain it.”
