What does Daddy like most about Mommy? Because she's the pretty lady and that's what he calls her.
Anything else you'd like to say?
He was getting tired of the interview, but his mind was still on the topic of Daddy telling him jokes so he said: I have a joke for you. Maybe a person can go to bed and watch a movie in bed, then eat popcorn, before even eating dinner! ...and he followed the "joke" by doing this huge fake laugh & hoping we'd laugh along. *this is something he really hopes will happen and is probably thinking that if he phrases it as a joke, we'll actually go along with it.
Smart boy. Funny boy. We're so happy he's our boy.
