We wait to hear our kids speak, and everytime they do, they mesmerize us with their innocent words. But just wait till they are smart enough to manipulate you with their cute looks and smart words. 😛
Two days back when my hubby was trying to make kids sleep, Renne was not in the mood to give up easily. He was looking for every reason or shall I say, every distraction, for not sleeping.
Renne: I want a Pillow.
Before you read further, try to say “I want a Pillow”, the way a two year old will say, just five times faster. Yeah, that’s how Renne speak. He do everything fast. Runs faster, eats faster and speaks much more faster.
So, instead of hearing “I want a Pillow”, you will hear “I wn plw”. :O I know it’s not much understandable. And yes, I can make sense of it. Occasionally though. 😛
Coming Back to our post.
Renne: I want a Pillow. (screaming at least 10 times, in one breath)
Papa: What? What do you want? (point to note, he didn’t understand Renne, no matter how much he will deny this fact after reading my post)
Renne: Pillow. I want Pillow.
Papa: I can’t understand you. What do you want?
Renne irritated, showing anger to his Papa.
Papa: Tisha, what does he want? I can’t understand him. (asking help from our three year old daughter Tisha)
Tisha: He wants Pillow, Papa. (Laughing at Papa… lol) 😀
Papa: Oh My God. Thank You Tisha. What will I do without you. (hands over a pillow to Renne. Matter resolved) 🙂
Now, this is not the real story, and if you are wondering what I was doing this whole time? I was pretending to sleep. So mean, right? 😀
Next day, when I was relaxing in my balcony, with a cold coffee, and a book to read, Renne took it to himself for disturbing my peace and quiet time.
Renne: Mamma, I want Jacket.
I understood him completely, but I was in no mood to leave my comfortable chair and ice cold coffee, to go get a jacket. Even more, because it was so hot, what would he want a jacket for? So, I said….
Me: What? I can’t understand you.
Renne: I want jacket, mamma.
Me: I am not able to understand you, Renne. What do you want?
Renne: Jacket. I want a Jacket. (shouting now)
Me: Go play baby. I can not understand you.
Me: Tisha, what is Renne saying? I am not able to understand him. (just to distract him)
Renne, looked over at Tisha, with his desperate looking eyes, as if asking for help.
Tisha: Hmm…. (a long pause after thinking a lot), Chocolate.
Me: WHAT? (surprised)
Tisha: Mamma, Renne wants chocolate.
Renne: Yes Mamma. I want Chocolate. 😀
All three kids shouting now, in unity. We Want Chocolate.
We Want CHOCOLATE. We Want CHOCOLATE. 😛
