“I Was Just Testing You”

Sitting on the couch with my son Josiah the other day, we had the following conversation:

Me: “I think you’re about the funniest kid I know.”
Siah: “So you won’t ever throw me away?”
Me: “No, I would never throw you away!”
Siah: “What about Kota?”
Me: “Nope, I’d never throw him away either.”
Siah: “Emmy?”
Me: “No.”
Siah: “Lizzy?”
Me: “Nope.”
Siah: “Mommy?”
Me: “No way.”

Siah, after a long pause: “I was just testing you, dad.”

Then he gave me a big 4-year-old hug – I guess I passed.
