Lily's patented Love system

How to win hearts and influence (parental) minds.

Ever since birth, place forehead against forhead of object of your affection. Turn head back and forth, rubbing foreheads together.

At age 5 months, bamboozle father with sideways glance over shoulder, prim smile, and shoulder shrug.

At age 1 through forever, continue to use patented forehead move to warm the hearts of unforgiving parental units.

At age not-quite-3 wander around house babbling to self. Interject "I love my mommy, I love my daddy" at every possible opportunity.

Freely administer kisses, hugs, and cuddles with blankets.
Hold hands willingly.
Ask "who wants to go HOmE?!" and raise hand at end of every outing.
Say "thank you" often, without being prompted.
And every so often, be really, REALLY naughty...just so parents remember you're a normal kid.
