What do you like best about me?

 

Bedtime tonight.

KO: Mummy, what do you like best about me?
Me (slowly): What do I like best about you … ?
KO (laughs): It’s really hard to choose, isn’t it?
Me: It is!
[pause]
KO (with a “eureka!” expression): I know!
Me: What?
KO: The thing you like best is that I am loved.
Me: Hmmm … I think the thing I like best about you is who you are. You are very special and there’s nobody else like you in the world. What do you like best about me?
KO: Hmmm … [pause] … the thing I like best about you is that you’re alive.
