Wish i had my camera!


Today, i really missed not having my camera handy…Amu wanted to read a book and so he pushed his box of books out to the living room and called me. I was a little tied up doing something so I asked him to wait…but that does not fit into his instant gratification philosophy with which he leads his life so he shook his head saying “no no no” and started off on a tantrum. Just then Sid came along and asked him what happened. Seeing the closed book box he figured Amu wanted to read and so he pulled out his old favourite (now Amu’s fav too)…Moo Baa La La La by Sandra Boynton. The two of them read it together 3 or 4 times and Sid kept prompting Amu to make all the animal sounds…Amu was only too happy to oblige! 

It was such an adorable sight…an almost 3 yr old ‘reading out’ to his 14 month old brother!

Amu paid him in kind…a big spontaneous hug that knocked them both over and abruptly ended the reading!  


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!
