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!"

Lunch, Lunch in the box, which is the yummiest of you all

Unless I give one or two of her favorites as lunch, sweet little pumpkin always gets back food half(little) eaten. Yesterday, I got little upset and asked her why can't she finish off the lunch. She answered why does the school always have lunch time when she is not hungry?

Favorite Months

Sweet little pumpkin told me that her favorite months are July (mine and her birth month) and February (her dad's birth month). I was happy that she liked the month of July not only for her birthday but mine too. I asked her how about June, when curious little monkey was born. To that she replies "These are my favorite months when I was a single kid. I have not changed them yet."

The first species to walk on earth

While reading a book on dinosaur to sweet little pumpkin, I told her that these were one of the first species to walk on earth, millions of years ago. She replied -"No mamma, it must be nurses. Who took care of baby dinosaurs?".

When I grow up

Sweet little pumpkin was telling me what she and her friends wants to be when they grow up. Suddenly she had a question and asked me "What will you be when you grow up and stop being mamma?". I said I don't know and asked her what she thinks I could become. She replies "Maybe a mamma".

Kid's day

Sweet little pumpkin asked me yesterday when was kid's day. I could not understand the question very well but I replied -"All days are kid's days". She replied - "No we need to have a kid's day. We have Mother's day and Father's day and I make presents to you. I need a day to get presents!"

Now What's that?

Curious little monkey got hurt and I needed to change his dressing every now and then. Sweet littke pumpkin was curious about "dressing" and insisted me to show her what color it is. I was surprised and showed her the dressing. When she realised that it was only a bandange and all I am doing is changing the bandage to keep the area clean, she exclaims "When you said I need to change his dressing, I thought you meant you are going to change his complete dress and put him a colorful new one!"

Aye Aye Captain!

Environmently Friendly

Yesterday, on our way back home, sweet little pumpkin was telling me how her day went. They did some craft work in which all of them required sheets of paper. Her friend, X had to take the paper first and then it was her turn. She said "Mamma, you know X took 4 sheets of paper. I told her to make paper, we need to cut trees. So, we should not waste them. I asked her to keep some back but she did not listen." Curious, I asked how much sheets she took to which she replies "I took less, just three."

After a usual day, I picked up my phone to call my sis-in-law yesterday evening. Chatting to a friend always relaxes and refreshes me after a day's work. In the meanwhile, sweet little pumpkin was asking me to play with her, which I told her I'll do in a while. To what seemed to her eternity, which in reality was only 2 minutes, she comes to me and says clear enough to be heard on the other end of the phone line: "Mamma, when will you stop talking?".

Gimme a break, please.

The right way, is it?

Sweet little pumpkin told me that her friend was troubling her in the afternoon by putting paint in her white top. She kept telling him not to trouble her but he did not stop (He is otherwise a sweet boy but of course kids are kids). She continued "I was brave Mamma and I did the right thing". I said "What did you do? Did you go and tell Miss XXX(her teacher)". She said "No. I just put some paint back on him". Oh Well!

Wake me up before you go

To be honest, waking up sweet little pumpkin is really an ordeal for me. Okay, don't remind me of my childhood days. I was not at the receiving end then and those were different times.

We are going to Chicago tomorrow and have to leave early around 4:30 am to catch the flight. I was telling that to sweet little pumpkin preparing her for an early wakeup call. Till now, she has been nice to wake up early if we had to catch a flight or travel somewhere. I guess the excitement of travel catches up at all ages. She told me very excitedly "You know Mamma, when we went to SD last time, Papi (she calls her dad papi ever since she knew that Dora calls her dad papi {dad in spanish}) woke me up, this time you can wake me up". To this, I reminded her that I always wake her up in the morning. To which she replies excitedly - "Imagine Mamma, you got another chance to wake me up. isn't it great? Aren't you happy?"

Am I? Do I have a choice?
