If anything he is honest:
Me: What did you do today?
Gabe: Um, umm… I tried to make Mom go nuts.
Gabe has been known to encourage others in their pursuits… as though he were Jillian from The Biggest Loser:
Gabe: Man-UP Grandma!
Gabe yelling down the stairs from his bed as I ascended to say prayers with him:
Gabe: But, I’m tired of sleeping.
Gabe the fashion judge:
Gabe: Dad, I like your belt
Me: Do you like my shirt?
Gabe: No, just your belt.
Gabe the candy critic:
Gabe: Dad, do you like them?
Me: No, not really.
Gabe: Oh, why did God not let you like ’em?
