the difference between my speaking capable children

Christian is wildly imaginative. Zu is deeply empathetic. Examples?

Zu says: "You shouldn't stand on Daddy's head, because that would hurt him."
Christian says: "I'm going to put a yak in my crack."

Zu (seeing my lying on the living room floor) brushes her hand across my forehead and asks: "Daddy, are you OK? Does your head hurt? Does your back hurt?"
Christian (seeing me in the same position) announces: "Daddy, you're a river. Look - I can jump over a river!"
