I took the morning off work today to watch my friend’s 3 year old son for an hour. I had the trains out and Thomas racked up on Netflix but Ben was pretty set on saying hello to my (notoriously skittish) cats.
They kept their distance at first but eventually Molly came over to investigate and as he bent down to stroke her Ben said:
Don’t be afraid Molly. I’m Benjamin, and I’m a boy.
