Finn started the day on the right foot today, informing his Mommy that he liked her scarf.

This is impressive in that it's the first compliment he's ever dished out. Given how sick the whole family has been this week, it's also one of the first things that he's said in days that wasn't attached to vomit. It's also a nice change of pace from the typical topics he reserves his words for, such as barking orders for more "garbage truck songs" on YouTube or complaining about having to spend five seconds on the potty.

He's taken an early lead in the Compliment-Mommy-Off that's bound to result, as I deal with the inevitable, "Your two-year-old son said he liked my scarf. Why don't you ever compliment me like that?"

Keep it up, kid. See if I'm so free with the popsicles next time you catch the flu.
