Can never guess what's coming next.

Ashwin wanted to learn the letter G today. So I printed out some activity sheets for him from a lovely site ( and he coloured a giraffe. He traced a capital and small G and I cut them out for him. He then pasted the two G's on his giraffe sheet and we put it up on the cupboard so that he can look at it and learn the G.

After all of this was done, he said to me:

Amma, I will give you a sticker now because you did such a good job with the cutting.

I took cue from him and told him that I would give him a sticker to. To which he reploed:

You will give me a sticker because I did such a good job of giving you a sticker?

G? what G...

Feel the love...

While coming back from a trip to the playground, the sun was going down and the sky was beautiful. I was walking by some pretty flowers on a hedge and thinking to myself how lovely they were and walking by when Ashwin called out from behind:

Amma, I got this pretty flower for you.

It's this easy to make my missy happy.

Little missy wakes up and waits patiently in her cot for someone to appear while the fish in her toy bar keep her company. When I eventually happen by and pull off her blanket, her face breaks into the most gregarious smile and she kicks her little legs rapidly in gleeful anticipation of being picked up.

Love this little missy.

The knob you turn to get water from a tap: tap "on"er
The person who picks up clothes from the basket and gives it to you: clothes giving-er

If he had two

Ashwin made a telescope at daycare. He was very fond of it and would use it to see anything, even the person standing in front of him.
His telescope was slightly crushed and so I told him I would help him to make another one.
After a brief ponder, he declared:

If I have two telescopes, I will keep one in this eye and one in this eye, you know that??!

Never trust a reptile...

Sitting in his seat in the back of the car, Ashwin asked me:

Amma, if someone finish your shoes, what will you do?

Why do you ask Ashwin, who will finish your shoes?

After a brief thought: crocodile, frog ...

It was only after I assured him that we can then buy new shoes did he breathe easy..
