“Once a little boy sent me a charming card with a little drawing on it. I loved it. I answer all my children’s letters — sometimes very hastily — but this one I lingered over. I sent him a card and I drew a picture of a Wild Thing on it. I wrote, “Dear Jim: I loved your card.” Then I got a letter back from his mother and she said, “Jim loved your card so much he ate it.” That to me was one of the highest compliments I’ve ever received. He didn’t care that it was an original Maurice Sendak drawing or anything. He saw it, he loved it, he ate it.”

Just so I don't forget about this...
When Max was 4 and in pre-school, he was making holiday decorations using pinecones.
He was particularly fidgety ALL morning until finally Mrs. Steinbock, a rather charming British grandma,
said to him, "Max! Do you have ants in your pants??"
To which he replied quite seriously, "No, just this."
And pulled out the biggest pinecone
he could cram into his britches.
When asked why he had a pinecone in his pants he said,
"I was hiding it because I didn't think I could take it home."
