I was on the phone with a friend giving directions to my home. I was struggling to think of the street lanes or landmarks around my house so that it would easier for my friend to find my house. That's when curious little monkey came to my rescue. He said " Tell him we live next to our neighbor's house"!!!

Who is everywhere

Sweet little pumpkin learnt the following prayer
"God is here, God is there
God God everywhere
God is one, God is one
Good is one for everyone."

Curious little monkey of course caught up, with a slight variation:
"Icecream here, Icecream there
Icecream, Icecream everywhere."

Who is a wife?

Last weekend my uncle and aunt came to visit us. Curious little monkey was only 1 or 2 months old when he last saw them. So, I was explaining to him that the Grandpa who was visiting is my dad's brother. He listened earnestly and asked "Who's the Grandma?". I said she is Grandpa's wife. My soon to be 6 year old Sweet little pumpkin retorted "Don't say wife to him when he is 3 years old. Wait till he is 5 or 6. Then he will understand." I asked her if she knew what a wife was to which she replied "Yes. Wife is a girl who lives with a boy."

I have been laughing ever since :) :)

Can we eat that?

I went to a parlour for getting my eyebrows shaped. I had to take curious monkey along with me. He sat through the whole thing quiet and amused. Later on the way back home, he asks me "Why was she eating the thread?"

When I grow up, I'll be....

After Sweet Little pumpkin, its Curious Monkey's turn to startle us.

The other day, his dad asked him what he wants to be when he grows up. We heard him say Pilot. His dad got very excited as he is very much interested in planes. He started running around the room like a plane, sounding the take offs and landings when Curious Little monkey emphatically said " No I want to be a Pirate!"

Curious little piglet!

My curious little monkey's name is Ayush. One of the "Dora The Explorer" story had following in a page - Dora, mother and daughter sheep, father and son pig. He was saying them aloud. He said - "Dora, Mama sheep, baby sheep, Papi Pig, Ayush Pig!"

A new introduction

I went to Sweet little pumpkin's school for their Halloween party/celebration. While I was trying to put faces to many names that I hear daily from her, a sweet girl from her class walks to me and says " Are you sweet little pumpkin's mom?" I said yes to which she replied " You look so much like her!"
