Kids say the darnedest things


We were at Sahakari Bhandar today (yup it features in my post yet again!) this morning . As always the twins had tagged along and as we wee in the vegetable section, we started looking at veggies and identifying them. Nish correctly identified carrots and tomatoes and then picked up drumsticks. I had told him what they were called just a few days ago…i asked him what they were and he thought for a minute before yelling out in excitement “Aai!!! Bumsticks!!!!” The lady next to us burst out laughing and i could barely conceal my smile …”almost correct baby..they are called Drumsticks!” Sid of course was so amused that he insisted on calling them Bumsticks for the rest of the day!  



About myfourboysandme

Mom - a word that defines me... I smell of oats, johnson's and home baked cookies I am pink, purple, green and orange and so is the floor my kids color on. Flour on my clothes and a brush in my pocket, my glasses bent out of shape and smudged with tiny fingerprints. I can't remember the date but i know almost 40 pictures books by heart. I wake up humming 'wheels on the bus'and i talk with my fingers and eyes and mouth. My bag carries band aids, napkins, wipes, crayons, papers, candy and sometimes my wallet. I know all the parks and very few of the restaurants in my neighborhood. Most of my shopping is diapers, books and paints My phd certificate lies in a roll, the frame now contains an abstract work of art by two year olds and i am prouder of that piece of paper. mom - a word that defines me!
