For the past week or so, a strange conversation happens several times a day:

Abby: Dylan, do you want a hug and kiss?

Dylan: NO! (as petulantly as you can imagine. This is not feigned grumpiness.)

Abby: No hug and kiss for you, then.

Dylan, frantic: Hug and kiss! I want a hug and kiss! 

Abby: OK! (hug and kiss ensues)

I hear this all of the time around here. All of the time.This can happen five times in a row and still Dylan falls for it.

Things could be worse.


  1. That is really cute. Little trickeries like that happen pretty often here, too.

  2. There is beauty all around, when there's love at home.
