Happiness According to Jax

I recently began babysitting a 3 year old named Jax. Here’s an excerpt from a conversation we had yesterday while playing on the family’s backyard play set:

Jax (turns around after climbing halfway up the slide): “Daddy says I’m silly. But I don’t want to be silly. I want to be…happy.”

Me: “I think you can be both! What makes you happy, Jax?”

Jax: *loud sigh* *pause* “Only food.”

I think he’s on to something.
