Robin, upon seeing the stairs at the Children's Theater: "Here, Aunt Marissa, take my hand on the stairs so you will feel more steady." He was also concerned about whether I would feel unsteady if I had to take his sister into the theater bathroom to change her, before he knew she was going to decline today's invitation, and had volunteered to come help.

Best little dude ever.

Really do need a new icon with him, though.
