Things that R says

R has become a chatterbox of late and mostly his conversations revolve around aeroplanes, cars, trucks and the likes. Else, he is full of questions. Just, a simple 'why' attached to everything! It is exasperating at times to keep answering his constant badgering without seeming bored or rude.  Sometimes he comes up such gems that is difficult to keep a straight face and answer.

Trying to put together some snippets here. Unfortunately, the best ones seem to get lost in the moment. 

The hubby was drinking his tea and accidentally spilled some on the floor 

Amma: oops!


R: What happened? did appa spill his tea?

Amma: yes.

R: appa! close your mouth and drink and you won't spill the tea..

---------------------------------
A month ago, when I was trying to teach R to drink from the cup directly instead of using a straw.

Amma: R, you are a big boy now.

R: *very pleased* yes, I am a big boy!

Amma: now, you must drink from the cup directly.

R: *sensing he's been put at a spot* Noooooo...I became a small boy!

------------------------------

R: amma, lets go by aeroplane to B'bay

Amma: yes, we'll but there's still some time for that

R: no, let's go now. I'll sit ahead and drive the plane, you and appa sit behind and come

Amma: !!!

----------------------------------

Some days ago, the husband accompanied his friend to check out some plots...

R: Where's appa?

Amma: He's gone out. Will be back soon.

R: has he gone to office. Does he have a meeting?

Amma: *wondering to just say yes and ward off further questions, then deciding to tell the truth* No, he's gone to see some plots..

R: plots?? what plots?? flower plots?

--------------------------------

R: amma, see, this truck, it is a beeeg truck

Amma: oh...nice..:-))

R: amma, see I parked this car properly here

Amma: *putting on the expression of looking impressed* gooood!

R: don't just say good. Say, wow. Say, wonderful!!

Amma: !!!!

  13. Very clever child. I think you must record some of his chatterings, you would love hearing them when he is no longer a child. They sound so sweet.
