Emily and I have a little routine… I believe it started years ago…
Before she could talk
I recall doing both voices
Me: “Em, you know what?”
Emily: “You love me?”
Me: “Yes! (Smiling) but you know what else?”
Emily: “You adore me?”
At that point it’s a shower of kisses followed by tickles and giggles.
We have another one where I give her hints to tell me I’m awesome.
It normally works
But the last time I did that, I said “so, that makes me a…..?”
Emily said: “Genius!”
There you have it. I’m a genius!
