Chicken: Happy New Year!
Me: What's your new year's resolution, Chicken?
Chicken: I don't know.
Me: What do you want to do this year?
Chicken: (begins to stack the elements of his lunch in the middle of his plate. Apple goes on sandwich. Snap peas go on apple.)
Me: Do you want to... learn how to swim?
Chicken: (takes apart lunch tower. Begins again.)
Me: How about learn to read? Do you want to learn to read this year?
Chicken: (whispers "wooooow" to his new lunch tower - snap peas, then sandwich, then apple.)
Me: OK, how about this year you hug and kiss Mommy and Daddy every single day?
Chicken: Mmmm... the swimmin one.
