mom, is playing with a kid more fun than playing with a baby?

During our lunch today, my son asked me that question. I was really caught offguard with the question. I was unsure if he was testing me or trying to figure out if i would prefer baby over him or the other way around…

i: why are u asking me this question? it is both fun…

son: i just want to know which is more fun to u…i want u to choose only 1, u cant choose both…

i: but it is the same to me…they are equally fun…

son: u have to choose only 1 and tell me why…

i: ok, to me it is more fun to play with a kid because they are able to follow instructions, babies are not able to follow instructions…i am also able to understand the kid coz they tell u what they feel and want, with the baby..u have to guess sometimes…how about u?

son: ah ok…to me, it is more fun playing with a baby because they are too cute…like when we are at a party and im playing with my friends then i see our baby, i get distracted, her cuteness bothers me…it makes me stop playing with my friends and play with her…i guess baby girls are just too cute especially if they hug u back…

i: that’s sweet…maybe when she gets older, u have to tell her that, she would love that..she is so fortunate/blessed to have u as her brother…
