Lil' Wingnut: Ooh, Mama, what is this? It is so beautiful!
Me: That's Daddy's Presidential Medal. The President gave it to him. Did the President give you one?
Lil' Wingnut: No. Is it magnetic?
Me: No. It has little pins on it to keep it on Daddy's shirt.
He then picks up a pair of silver wings from Wingnut's uniform: Ooh! This is nice too! Is it magnetic?
Me: Those are Daddy's pilot's wings. They aren't magnetic either. You have to be a pilot to have those. Are you a pilot?
Lil' Wingnut with downcast face: No.
He then picks up Wingnut's name tag that bears our family's last name and holds it up to me with a big grin on his face as he reads it and realizes that it is his last name.
Me: Yep, that's your last name too.
Lil' Wingnut: Is it magnetic?
Me: No, it has little pins to keep it on Daddy's shirt.
Lil' Wingnut: Can I have it?
Me: No, Daddy needs it for his uniform, but I bet he has an old one you can have.
At this point, Wingnut gets up and starts rummaging around for old uniform name tags. He comes across a medal he earned by playing on the handball team at the Academy and gives it to his lil' guy. Lil' Guy is thrilled, but becomes even more so as Wingnut hands him an old name tag. Adding to the thrill, this particular tag is magnetic! He wears both proudly for about all of about 5 minutes. It sure was a cute 5 minutes.
