A Dad’s Life: toddlers & canines

Before I got married 2010, my wife and I had decided to get our first pet together and we adopted a puppy.

A Dad’s Life: Toddler Speak

My 15-month old son has learned this new thing. He looks up at me and keeps pointing to the palm of his other hand and I’ve learned that this means “more”. “More” in the sense that if he finishes a piece of watermelon and he wants another piece, that’s when he motions for “more” if he’s still hungry.
