Little Man: Daddy I want to buy a boat (They looked at boats at Bass Pro Shop this week).
Daddy: Go talk to Mommy.
Little Man: Mommy can we buy a boat?
Mommy: We need more money to buy a boat.
Little Man to Daddy: Mommy said yes, she said yes (while jumping up and down excited).
I guess it starts young with males only hearing what they want to:)
