My almost 3 year old Sid is quite territorial and likes to stake his claim on stuff around him. Not necessarily a good thing…just an observation.
Anyway, he was sitting at the table this morning as i ate my breakfast and staring for a bit at my ring. “Aai!” (mom) he finally said after looking at it for a bit. “This ring is very pretty!” “Thank you Sid” i replied. He was obviously not done yet…”Can I have it?” (Big bambi eyes and a smile to melt my heart). No love, this is a special ring. I can’t give this to you. Your dad gave this one to me for our wedding anniversary” (weddings are big in Sid’s mind right now – we recently attended 2). “OK”, he bargained, willing to compromise a little, “then will you give it to me at my wedding?”
That’s a long way off…so i consented. I can give it to you wife Sid i said…is that cool?
Yes he replied. “That is OK”. And, striking when the proverbial iron was hot he quickly added, “And will you then also give me you macbook and the kindle and your phone too?”
