Toddler: Dad, can we listen to the Thomas song?
Me, wincing: Like the train? You want the Thomas song?
Me, not wanting to destroy the young human’s spirit, but also dreading the next fifteen minutes as the song is played on loop: Okay, buddy. I’ll tell the robot to play the song.
Toddler, already dancing: Thanks!
Me, muttering: If you weren’t so adorable.
Toddler, singing: Thomas and his friends!
Me, fifteen minutes later: We need to pick a new song, big guy! What do you want?
Toddler: uh..uh…uh…um.. Thomas!
Me: Fiddle sticks. One last time.
Toddler: Yeah! Thanks!
