One afternoon I found a chocolate bar in our pantry. I asked, “Who would like a little piece of chocolate?” Emil responded, “I do because I have a mouth!” Good point, my friend.
Emil often wears a superhero costume, like Captain America, out and about. But he doesn’t like people to notice it. So when someone says, “Hi Captain America!” He says, with a very serious face, “I’m not Captain America. I’m just EMIL. And I don’t like you.”
At nighttime, he sometimes gets out of bed, lies down next to his (doorknob-less) door, and whispers in a pathetic little voice under the door crack, “Papa, I need a hug. I just love you.” Gets him every time.
From the bath tub, “Mamaaaaa! I need more toys in here. Like a shark. And a cup. You’re welcome!”
There’s so much more. He is just the funniest little guy.
Hope you enjoy your weekend!
P.s. — Funny, the article I wrote for the Post made it (indirectly) to Good Morning America!
