Besides their good looks.

Steve is on a business trip so Noah’s been sleeping in our bed. This morning I woke him up for school.

Noah: I’m Mommy’s little skunk.

Me: Because you stink?

Noah: Oh. I’m Mommy’s little hedgehog because I snuggle with her at night.

Me. More like you kick me in the night.

Noah: Me, Daddy, and Bumpa are skunks because we stink.

Me: You stink?

Noah (looking at me knowingly): Because we have G A S.

There you have it.
