My husband yells in to me from outside and shortly after the door closes, I hear little boots walking down the hall. My two-year-old is covered in dirt, smells like a barn, and is smiling ear to ear.
“Hudson, did you have fun outside?”
“Oh, did you get to see the sheep?”
“Yes they went ‘baaa’. I like dem. I played with dog too.”
“Were the sheep scary?”
“No, I like dem.”
The conversation continues with lots of two-year-old babbling, restating how much he likes the sheep.
Later, after dinner, bath and bed, my husband and I settle in on the couch. I tell him how Hudson really liked the sheep and how I was surprised he wasn’t scared (he’s usually more of an “I like you if you stay over there” kid).
My husband replies surprised: “He was scared once we got into the pen. He cried so I held him and tried to get him to pet them. Finally I let him go and he was ready to come in.”
Joyful Truth: In life, remember your answer will always depend on whom you ask.
