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!
