conversations at bed time


Nish: Sid, are you my friend

Sid: yes..i am!

Nish: I am also your friend. Are you my best friend?

Sid: I already have a best friend

Nish: Please can you be my best friend?

Sid: But aai (mom) is my best friend already! 

Nish: she is my best friend too!

At the end of a mad day where the three boys have driven me up the wall with their shrieks and screams and fights and tantrums…i still would not trade this in for anything! 


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!
