Yesterday’s Scene: On a family walk, O reaches down to pick a dandelion…
O: “Here Mama…I picked a flower for you”
G: “Thank you…that’s so nice! What about Baba?”
O walks over to me and hands me the yellow dandelion
O: “Here Baba, can you hold this for Mama?”
Good times… 😉

To be fair, he did give me a big, unprompted bear hug on the way into school today and loudly declared “I Love Baba!”- so it’s not all shade!
