Someone’s got a pretty good brain that’s been doing lots of quick thinking lately, not to mention the really glib tongue.
Someone who’s just barely turned three.
Someone who’s the apple of my eye.
Me: So Nat, shall we skip the diaper today?
Nat: Yes! Gimme my monster underwear!
Me: Remember to go pass urine in the toilet bowl, k. You have no diaper on.
Nat: Ok, I am a big boy now!
A while later, a yellow pool floods the sofa …
Ben: Ewwwww! Nat passed urine!!!!
Becks: (running away) Yucks! Nat passed urine!
Me: (running to the sofa) Oh no, Nat! Thought you said you would go to the toilet? Haiyah!
Nat: Haiyah! Why you didn’t wear diapers for me?
Fatherkao: Who wrapped masking tape on the blind’s string? It’s all so sticky now!
Kao kids: (silence)
Fatherkao: Better own up now, whoever did it.
Nat: Dada, maybe the lizard did it?
Me: Yes, my dear Nathanael?
A while later…
Me: Nat Nat!
Nat: Yes, my dear Elizabeth?
At the USS Gift Store
Me: Nat, check out your favourite fruit.
Nat: Come on, everyone, let’s do it!
Kao kids: Ba-ba-ba-ba-bu-na-na!
