Little Story One:
So this teeny tiny little fella has become quite a smart alec... In fact my new name for him is - the negotiator!
There was a time I loved telling him stories before he went to sleep, but now thats become Aadi's department... mostly because I found myself falling asleep telling the stories!!!
No not because they were boring stories... just because ... well whatever!
Point being one night Aadi wasn't around and I was putting him to sleep... So I tried to be clever and told him
"Baby I'm really tired today can we just do cuddly cuddly and go to sleep?" (this is also because man I love cuddling this thingling)
"No mumma tell me a story"
"Arree baba I'm really tired ya... I only have the energy to do cuddly cuddly"
He thinks for a bit and says
"Mumma why don't you use your cuddly cuddly energy to tell me a story instead?!!!!"
Little Story Two:
So we were watching the Graham Norton show a few weeks ago and Miley Cyrus and Mark Ronson performed their new song.
It’s called “Nothing breaks like a heart”
So she’s sitting on top of a car and he’s strumming his guitar below while Siddy and I watch them... when Siddy asks:
“What’s the name of this song mumma?”
“Nothing breaks like a heart baby”
Silence and then in a minute or two
“Ya that’s true” he says very matter of factly.
“Nothing breaks like a heart” he shrugs and says.
Now silence on my part! Assuming he’s confused I say
“But when a glass glass breaks it can break na?”
"Ya mumma but a heart is magical. When it breaks it turns into dust... not like regular things like a chair which just breaks.
Now its just silence on my part because oh my god... my little baby... he already knows the heart is magical... damn any girl who comes close to his sweet sweet heart.... Imma gonna kill you!
