The Gremlin was at the doctor’s office the other day when he saw another mother and child coming into the office. The mother and her newborn were bundled up for the chilly Seattle morning, and the Gremlin noticed something interesting.
“Momma, I think that baby is silly.”
“Why do you think that?”
“Because I think it’s a silly hat.” The Mother of the Gremlin looked over and saw the baby was wearing a bunny hat – white with floppy ears, pastel blue eyes and a pink nose. “I think it’s silly to look like the Easter Bunny!”
“Well, it is an Easter hat, buddy,” the MOTG informed him. The Gremlin stopped dead in his tracks. He slowly looked up at the mother of the newborn, who was sitting back enjoying this conversation.
“He must have gotten a lot of stuff for Easter!”
“Well, he did get three Easter baskets.” The Gremlin, fully charged at this news, turned to the MOTG.
“MOMMA, WHERE DO I GET A HAT LIKE THAT?!”
“Buddy, it’s a baby’s hat.” The Gremlin sighed, relieved.
“That’s okay – we’re getting a baby.”

We’ve recently found that the Gremlin has gotten significantly better with sharing. He will now share willingly with his friends, and doesn’t get upset about the Mother of the Gremlin asking him to share with strange kids (though we usually have to encourage him significantly).
He was being so nice that we were surprised when some rather disturbing imagery bubbled up. The MOTG took the Gremlin over to the doctor’s office to get his final boosters. When the nurse entered the room with the needle he started.
“She had better not try to stick me with that or I will stab her in the face!” We were lucky enough to have a seasoned veteran who burst out laughing at the threats of the 4 year-old, however she still tried to talk to him about it.
“Oh, sweetie, it’s not going to hurt! It will be really quick and you won’t feel it at all.”
The Gremlin looked at the MOTG.
“We’ll see if it doesn’t hurt when she gets stabbed in the face.”
