The Two Year Old

‘Oh my god!’

‘What are we (you) doing, Amma?’

‘I can fight.’ And he starts hitting me when I reprimand him.

‘Yeay, I did it!’

‘What’s happening, Amma?’

‘Don’t disturb.’

And every night, without fail, he goes to his toy room to take a miniature car. He then brings it to the bed and holds on to it till he dozes off.

Except for the occasional chicken or fish, he rarely touches other food for lunch or dinner. The only constant is milk.

Roti canai, sausages, burger, pizza, slices of cheese, pancakes are of no issue.

Colours & Counting

The little one surprised me by saying out every single colour showed to him. That includes pink, purple & brown.

Without being asked, he also counted the number of elephants correctly in a hand crafted wooden piece.

War & Peace no more…

In the early days of reading, I was kind of experimenting with different genres of books. Daniel Steel, Jackie Collins and some unknown others, real life incidents were part of the purchases I made.

I came to realize that these were not up to my likings. Now that I am lacking space in the bookshelf, I decided to give these away. All in all, I think about 14 books were given away.

This includes War & Peace by Tolstoy. I cry defeated. 😦
