What goes on in their wee heads?

Tale 1
Venue: In the car, on the way home from in-laws'.

Little D: Mummy, can I have a new daddy?
Shocked and gobsmacked, plus a little furious, I asked: Why are you asking, and who fed you such ideas?
Little D: No one. I just want a new daddy.
Me: We've gone through this. Why do you want one?
Little D: I want a baby. Can I have a new daddy and then a new baby?
Me: Go play with Blue (his blue soft toy) or any other babies you can get hold of. And stop dreaming...

I sure hope the kids will stop bugging me with that same question!

Tale 2
Venue: In the car, towards the clinic.

Abang Z started developing high fever the night before, and although I had given him some paracetamol, the fever had not really subsided. He was groaning and moaning in the morning, pestering me to rush him to the doctor's. So, we went... And this was what went on.

Abang Z: Mummy, can children get cancer?
Me: Yes, Abang... Why, do you think you've got it?
Abang Z: Just asking...
Me: Don't worry Abang, InsyaAllah you'll be fine. I don't think you've got cancer. It's just fever.
Abang Z: Okay.

Dear Lord, please give my children strength and the best of health...

innocence of youth, they are really going fast from our lives...

KakRose said...

Yes, I get qs1 often too.. in different variations like "can we go look for a new abah?" and asking "can so&so be our new abah?", "let's shop for abah baru" etc...

Another common qs: "since you are older than most of my friends' mummy, will you die first?"...

My dear,

The way I look at it your kids are smart & reflective. Layan saja whatever that they wanna know. Keep their spirits up. Better to know that they are thinking kids.

Your son is better.

When I was just a little girl
I asked my mother
What will I be?
Will I be pretty?
Will I be rich?
Here's what she said to me:

Que sera, sera.
Whatever will be, will be.
The future's not ours to see.
Que sera, sera.
What will be, will be.

When I grew up and fell in love
I asked my sweetheart
What lies ahead?
Will we have rainbows
Day after day?
Here's what my sweetheart said:

Que sera, sera.
Whatever will be, will be.
The future's not ours to see.
Que sera, sera.
What will be, will be.

Now I have children of my own.
They ask their mother,
What will I be?
Will I be handsome?
Will I be rich?
I tell them tenderly:

Que sera, sera.
Whatever will be, will be.
The future's not ours to see.
Que sera, sera.
What will be, will be.
Que sera, sera.

i'm dedicating this special song sung by doris day for D. hope she likes it as i did *smile*
