Conversations with Aiden

Aiden had a phase when he loved squeezing people's cheeks. Unfortunately in this photo, he squeezed the cheeks of an anak dara orang. *giggles*

A good friend forwarded the above photo to me recently. Boy, it was certainly a trip down memory lane. I do miss those days when Aiden was a cuddly toddler, speaking with a slight pelat and all.

Nowadays, we have some pretty interesting conversations. His innocence sometimes stump the hell out of me:

Aiden: *while watching cartoon on TV* Mummy, how long is a platypus tail?
Me: I don't know Aiden, why don't you ask Phineas and Ferb.
Aiden: But they are in the TV, they are not real!
(As my mind was whirring to find a smart answer without having to use Google, he continued...)Aiden: I wish I had a platypus.
Me: Where in the world would I find one!
Aiden: In India
Me: India?? Do you know where that is?
Aiden: Yes, my friend is from there.
Me: Who??
Aiden: XXXX! (name deliberately hidden)
Me: Noooo... he's tricking you.
Aiden: But he's brown!
Me: *sigh* Aiden, just because someone is Indian, doesn't mean he is from India. 
Aiden: But you said your boss is American and he's from America!
Me: *speechless*

And another time, while I was driving our new car:

Aiden: Why did you sell our old car?
Me: Cos it was giving us some problems.
Aiden: What problems?
Me: When we braked, there was a sound.
Aiden: But that's just a sound!
Me: Okay there was also once, I tried to brake and it didn't stop. Also sometimes, the car jerks.
Aiden: Wow, that number two one is a serious problem (haha Manglish!)
Me: Yes it is!
Aiden: So what did the person who took the car did to it?
Me: He sold it to someone else. (I meant the used car dealer)
Aiden: But that is dangerous!
Me: Ermmmm well he fixed it first then sold it.
Aiden: So why didn't you just fix it?
Me: *speechless*

*giggles* He actually had a point!
