Hey, Charlie, how about we decorate your first gingerbread house?
Oh, wow, Mom! I remember hearing about this in the womb! But first, I’m hungry. Dad, can I have a bottle?
*gulp, gulp* OK, I’m ready!
Alright, Charlie. First you have to find a blank gingerbread house.
How about the one that says, “Charlie?”
Perfect! Now, first you have to cover the gingerbread house with specially made icing. Don’t worry, Dad will help you.
I think I’m getting the hang of it!
Great job! Now we get to decorate it with candy.
Nah, I think it would be more fun to make funny faces at you, Mom. Here’s one:
And, here’s another! Ha, ha. I’m so funny!
Yes you are, Charlie. But what about the gingerbread house?
I’ll be right there. But, first, check out this rad blanket! Peek-a-boo!
Ah, there you are, Charlie. I was wondering where you went. Are you sure you’d rather play with the blanket?
Alright, Charlie. Your Dad and I will finish the gingerbread house. Would you at least take a family picture so we can remember this moment?
OK, but make it quick. I’ve got important places to be – like on the carpet over there where I can grab my feet!
Thanks, little dude.
