Right. I know, babe.

So you have to let him figure out the clues.

I got it, babe.

Jackson: Yay, daddy! You got the dragon!

Eric, give him back the controller and let him try to figure it out.

You'll need to say thank you to Emmy for the gift, Jackson.

Yes, I said "thank you to Emmy" to the sky so she can hear me across the world.
