I guess he takes after me...

I was at basketball practice with my nine-year old son the other day, and my wife was home with my six-year old, cuddled up on the couch watching a movie.  Very tender moment.  She hugged him tight.  "I love you," she said.

"I love you too," he said.  "Now let's get back to the movie."

He's also very good at little quips...

When he was three:
Me: How about a hot dog for lunch?
Him: Ummm...how about no?

A couple months ago:
[older brother is acting cranky]
Him: It looks like someone is going to bed early tonight. I wonder who that's going to be...

He's sweet, but brief.
