Today is my son Dodge’s 7 month birthday! Before heading out the door to work I scooped him up in the air, gave him a big Dada-hug, and said, “Happy Birthday Dodge!” He squealed with delight. My 2-year-old Max, whose birthday is in January, ran into the room and announced, “Today is my robot birthday Dada!” Then he pretended to be a robot by moving his arms slowly and making beeping sounds. I wished Robot-Max “Many happy returns of the day, Robot Max,” and gave him a very mechanically loving Robot-Dada hug. The competition for affection is on like Donkey Kong in my house.
