kid-speak

as we waited for V to come & unlock the car...
S: why don't u get a bigger car?
me: u don't like our car? *it's a nice, red coupe!*
S: it's nice. but u shud get another one.
me: y? we don't need two cars.
S: this one has only 2 doors. u'll need a bigger car if u have to have babies, u know.

well, d only relative left to remind me that i need to think from now so as to have a kid in the next 3 years!


after V unlocks the car, and we're taking our luggage in... i very nicely offer to carry the laptop & my itsy bitsy haversack.
S: y are YOU carrying luggage? that's wot uncle V is supposed to do.

oh dear! wait till u grow up & learn the harsh truth!


on spotting V's sleeping bag in the car
S: where IS uncle V going?
me: DC. why?
S: he wud be staying at a hotel there, rite?
me: yeah?
S: don't they have beds there? why does he need a sleeping bag?

how do i explain to her that "uncle' V can't sleep without it. so we carry that sleeping bag everywhere we go?

A, my other niece, has her b'day in april. but she would also be celebrating it after her grand-parents come over in may. so when V asked her when her b'day was, she happily told him:
"in april. and then in may."

p.s.: S turns 7 in june. A will turn 4 in april. not may.
