My son, my 21 month old son, is going to grow up to be a con man. Is there a positive faux con man career that I can hope for?
How do I know that he will be a con man? This child can already work a room. He is charismatic. And does he have tricks up his sleeve. When he is mad at me, not hurt, just mad because I am not giving him what he wants or paying enough attention to him, he hits his little head on the floor, or whatever hard surface happens to be handy. And then he looks at me. This look is a cross between puppy dog eyes and a conniving gleam that says "did it work? are you going to stop making dinner and pick me up?"
It usually doesn't work. But I have no doubt that kid will improve his poker face. And then I'm in big trouble.
