honest conversations


Day before, as i was putting the boys to sleep, Sid cuddled close to me and said “I love you!”…Quite touched by his frank affectionate statement I said “thank you!” and then asked him what it was that he liked most about me.

“Your kisses” he said quite candidly. And demonstrated what he was saying by giving me a sweet kiss on he cheek.

Quite moved, i turned to Nish and asked him what he liked about me. He thought for a fraction of a second and announced quite proudly “your ipad!!!”.

I tried to get a better answer…”Hey Nish, see i love your smile, I love how you bounce with excitement! Is there something that you love about me?” He looked at me with a very straight face and repeated what he had said a minute ago: “Your ipad!”.

At least he is being honest i guess!!!


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!
