May I ask you a question?
Me: "No" ***Mean you think? You would not think so, after you have answered the questions non-stop for 12 hrs a day! ***
Cheeky : "Mommy can I ask you a question I have never asked before?"
He is relentless!
Cheeky came up to me the other day and asked
"Amma can we break the roof of our car?"
Me: "What? Why?" I am ready to declare a time out for such violent thoughts!
Cheeky replies "Then we will have a convertible"
Bingo... what a simple fixer upper!!
This weekend we took him to a friend's house and let him loose on our unsuspecting friend! I must go off track and inform you that the shy bone has been lost again! I have a son who talks too much again (for those who did know he was shy all of last year and had me bewildered) and asks me just to confirm "Mommy was I shy today?" This I have found is his way of fishing for compliments and is the same as and followed by, "Mommy was I good today?". So back on the topic of the relentless questions... We turned Cheeky loose on S and had a blast watching S answer all those questions. S of course broke out in cold sweat quite a few times in the 2 hours and could be heard lamenting "My daughter is going to ask these questions soon. Oh God!" Just our way of spreading some joy!!
While there, S's cute kid little A all of 7 months kept wanting everything Cheeky picked up and Cheeky would hand it over and move on to the next toy. He seemed to understand that she was very little! I had the proud mamma expression on my face, when he turned the tables deftly! Cheeky had brought his mobile phone all secure in his pocket and fished it out to display with pride, to S! Little A made a bee line for the mobile which makes sounds and lights. I urged Cheeky to give her the mobile to play with.
Cheeky put it back in his pocket hastily "Amma it needs to be charged"
Me: "Come on give it to the baby, you can take it when we go home"
Cheeky: "Amma that is not a toy, and I have a call"
I had to give in, after all I have talked my way out of many sticky situations in the past!!
M had cooked up a delicious meal and as we urged Cheeky to sit down she asked him "So what do you like? You can eat whatever you like"
Cheeky responded sweetly "I like the plate, can I eat that?"
And it went on and on the Cheeky retorts and the relentless questions. While it was fun, it could only last the 2 hours as S and M seemed visibly exhausted at the end of it, and we made a bee line for the car. After all we can use the break every once in a while and we don't want to push our luck do we?
But Cheeky doesn't get it. He got up bright and early this morning to ask me "So when are they coming"
Me: "When are who coming"
Cheeky: "The people we visited yesterday"
Me: "Uncle S?" Cheeky nods vigorously "They are not coming today"
Cheeky: "Thats ok we can go there then!"
We need to make more friends here, we can't subject M and S to a daily doze of Cheeky can we? Anybody game?
