I think I’ll sit on you

Look at me, look at me!

Look at my pretty art! (Points at paint on floor, walls and carpet)

I just threw up

I’m hungry

No, I don’t want to eat that

Can I have ice cream?

I want to watch my show

Hold me!

Are you done yet?

What are you doing, daddy?

Dinosaur attack!

I’m thirsty

Come play in my room

Would you like some tea?

Let’s have a picnic (under your downward dog)

Daddy, dad, dadoo, dada!

Dad, I need help!
