The funny funny things my boys say!


Yesterday in the afternoon, Sid and Nish were engrossed in some conversation. I stopped to listen and I heard Nish tell Sid, OK, now you are the lion and I am broccoli! I wondered what on earth they were playing and where this bizarre introduction would lead the two so i waited to listen some more. Nish continued unperturbed by my presence…”now broccoli is walking in the forest and you are roaring loudly…you have a thorn in your leg. Now roar!” Sid the lion complied with a fairly ferocious roar and then winced saying ouch ouch leg paining!

FInally figured out they were acting out Androcles and the Lion! Over dinner i told them the story again, this time stressing on the name Androcles (although i quite liked the Broccoli version myself). 

Another funny thing was Sid’s reaction to Nish yesterday. Nish was hogging some toy and simply refusing to give Sid a turn. Sid reasoned with him (we had a long chat day before and decided we were all going to keep our cool and not yell at each other…Sid is taking that quite seriously!). “You play for 5 minutes, then it’s my turn” Sid said. “No” replied Nish. “my toy!” Sid looked at him, most exasperated, put his hands out in front of him and very seriously exclaimed: That is absolutely RIDICULOUS!!!” (pronounced reeeeediclus). Nish just looked at him, then turned to me and asked ‘what is he saying??” Reediclus reediclus reediclus went Sid and I left the room because i was ready to burst with laughter. 

I now also know what my expressions and gestures probably look like!

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!
