Me: "Who has the best seat in the house, me or daddy?"

Adam: "Well, Daddy's is nice, but yours is best. Your's is squishier."

A little story

Once, a long time ago, there lived a young woman and a young man who fell in love and got married.  The young woman and the young man had decided they would never have a cluttered refrigerator covered in tacky magnets and sentimental keepsakes.  Mysteriously, small children joined their family one at a time, creating large messes and causing the young man to get grey hairs and the young woman to get skin on her belly that resembles bread dough. 
Soon, the small children were drawing small pictures.  Alas, the young couple became not-so-young-but-somewhat-wiser and could not keep up with the small pictures.  It was not long before it became clear to the not-so-young couple that the drawings of small children were exactly what the front of a refrigerator was made for. 
A year later they learned a similar lesson about homemade Christmas tree decorations.
(Please note the illustration of the young couple with lovely yellow bodies)
