Birthday Conversations..



S quietly turned 6 years old yesterday, and other than a cake cutting at school and chocolate distribution at Karate, we didn't do anything much at home as hubby's traveling (Well that was my excuse and I'm sticking to it ;)).

For a whole lot of questions ranging from "When are you going to sleep on your own?" to "When are you going to keep your toys neatly?" he had been answering with "When I am 6 years old!". So I asked him that morning:

Me: Hey, now that you're 6 you can't answer with "When I am 6 years old" anymore. What are you going to do? Are you finally going to agree to do all those things?

S: (With his typical twinkle) I'll just say "When I am 7 years old!".

LOL the kid just has an answer for everything!


On the older sibling front, D is now into playing something called "Spirit Animals" on the desktop. To the extent, that she has discussed the game with her friends who play it, and came back today with information on how to complete the challenge she had been stuck at!!

    I'm really going bonkers with picking up toys after R. Nowadays, I'm picking up numerous tiny bits of paper that might have taken the shapes of rockets, aircrafts and even snakes!!!
