Conversations with my 3.5 years old

Me: "Hey Alex, it's Chinese New Year. Can you wish your Gong Gong and Po Po a happy new year in Chinese? Come on, give it a go. Say Xin Nian Kuai Le."
3.5yo: "Ding Ding Ding Dong!"

Me: "You haven't been a very good boy today. I'm not very happy with you."
3.5yo: "I'm happy with you, Mummy."

Me: (Looking at our reflections in the mirror): "Do you look like mummy, Alexander?"
3.5yo: "No!"
Me: "Do you look like Daddy then?"
3.5yo: "No!"
Me: "Who do you look like then?"
3.5yo: "I look like me!"

The modern fairytale he made up one night:

"Once upon a time, there was a princess who lived in a castle in a faraway country. She had a ball, the ball was broken. So Granddad fixed it with some epoxy. The princess played with the ball at the pond with a frog. The End."
