Guess Who

This is Dave:
He is five. (And a half). He is adorable. Sometimes during this last weekend I called him "Davey." He didn't seem to mind. He snuggled up with me to watch fireworks. It made me love him even more. His picture is the background on my phone.

But, being five, there are a few things that Dave doesn't quite have the hang of yet - like guess the animal/person. You know the game - it's basically the same as 20 questions - only we usually play with an infinite number of questions, especially if we are playing with kids. Dave was pretty good at asking questions. I mean, he doesn't really know the difference between a mammal and a reptile, but he can guess lots of animals.

Sadly, though, Dave was not really a master of answering questions. One round went like this:
Dave: Okay, I'm ready.
Questioner: Is it a boy?
Dave: Yeah.
Questioner: Is he from a movie?
Dave: Yeah, he's from Star Wars.
Questioner: Is he a Jedi?
Dave: Yeah, it's Luke Skywalker.
And that's how Guess the Animal/Person goes when you play with a five-and-a-half-year old.

(Also, it was in this game that Eric made Dave cry, but that's a story unto itself).

What a cutie! He'll get the hang of the game and then drive every one nuts trying to get them to play with him. :)

Wait until he starts with the knock-knock jokes. My 7 year old has been doing them for nearly 2 years and still doesn't get it.

Dave is at such a delightful age. Eric didn't make him cry just once...a story you must tell...he also cried whey you & Eric left.
