My Child & I

Mom is browsing the Sunday paper for city-events, firstborn is doing his 'spot the differences' puzzle and dad is enjoying his cup of coffee.

Second-born is looking at the pictures in the paper and at one point stares at a page.

Second-born (pointing at the picture of a swim-suit model) : "Amma, shame , shame!"

Mom (to distract him, turns the page): "Hey, look at this picture with the beach holiday!!"

Second-born: (turns it back to the original page): "Aiyaiyo! I put dress"

Skips away, brings back some crayons and colors/covers the model with a 'dress.'

Super sweet Sunday!
