A couple of days ago, shortly after his bath, my 4-year-old waltzed into the family and said, "Dad look!"
I turned to see him standing there, fingers balled into a fist with his middle finger in the air.
I said nothing.
He stood there.
"Look dad!" he said this time shaking his finger at me with an angry face.
At this point I wasn't sure what to think or say and - quite honestly - began to wonder just where in the hell he learned this gesture.
A few moments passed while I began to formulate a reply before he spoke again.
"Look! I have a CUT on my finger!" he said.
This was followed by a "sheesh" and then: "Can I have a band aid?"
