Cross Talk

I want to walk holding the hand of an ice-cream.
But it will melt.
No I will hold its hand and eat it.

I want to fly
You just did too. When we went to San Francisco. Remember?
Not in an airplane. I want to fly like a bird with my wings.
{Your father is not allowed to hang-glide and neither will you be}

I want a diamond
When you get a wife
Turning Aie's hand over and looking at her diamond
Are you married?
Yes.
Is R-mama getting married?
Yes
Is R-Mama getting a diamond?
Yes
I want a wife.
{not so soon, dude}


I want a beer
Ajji (sipping her wine): Do you have a beard and a moustache? You can drink beer after you get a beard and a mustache.
You don’t have a beard and a mustache.

Throwing a tantrum
You are a big boy now. Big boys don’t throw tantrums.
Only big girls do?
{Where did that come from?}

I feel so sad.
Why?
Because you yelled at me.
I scolded you because you did a terrible thing.
I want you to say sorry to me. Say sorry to me because you yelled.
I will do no such thing
Yes, you will.
I won’t.
Say sorry.

ddmom said...

Hilarious and absolutely cute.. I want a wife stole the show :) Watch out Dottie, the incentive you are giving is worth the try. LOL!

You know here, D asks - But why I have to be big girl to have papa drink[beer], but I can be small girl and drink orange juice. I tell her its tastes like mircha, thats why. If your tongue burns, don't blame me. To which I get, but I am little bit big. Can I taste it one time. If I don't like it I won't drink? Then I will drink lot of water, tongue will be ok..

Preethi said...

Shobana said...

Come on Dottie...be nice and say sorry to Chip.

The boy is cuteness personified.

Girl Next Door (gnd) said...

He's Hilarious!! If he has even an ounce of his current sense of humor when he grows up, he aint gonna have NOoooo trouble getting him a girl!

"Only big girls do?" - you KNOW where that comes from! T2 :)

Missed reading Chip's antics!!

DotThoughts said...

gtn: not so soon. I scolded him. the tone was stern. I do yell sometimes, but not this time. And I do aplogize. he now expects an apology everytime I scold him.

rayshma: you need pressure? :)

ddmom: lol. he has to find a girl who will give him a diamond. but who knows in 25 years, right? D believes you when you tell her its mircha?

mixedb: nah. this one want to marry and settle at the ripe old age of 3.

mystic: yeah, go on tell raysh.

preethi: I just said that Ajji is a girl she doesn't get a moustache and that seemed to satisfy him for now.

shobana: you can have him :)

gnd: I was afraid the big girl he was talking about was me :P

noon said...

Damn cute - I want a wife! :)
Man - this one's for posterity really!
And I go through the same "sorry" routine with KB - even just a couple of hours back!

Trish said...

hahah he is so cute.. actually the diamond logic is fundu!:D
LOL!! and he is so sad..say sorry na :) Agree with cee.. say sorry first and then make him say sorry!hehehe

Mona said...

how cute is chip! :)

Usha said...

Why is it that this is precisely the kind of thing that I expect Chip to say? I'd be disappointed if he acquiesced obediently. "I want to fly'-precisely the kind of thing a child with his spirit is expected to say!
"I want a wife" - that is cute!

NainaAshley said...

LOL. That is so cute!
Especially loved the 'only big girls do' question. The men must have had a field trip with that one.

Mira's mom said...

Hey, I loved the "flying like a bird" bit the most :-)

K 3 said...

Hilarious , but tell me were u able to keep a straight face while answering his questions? :)

DotThoughts said...

noon: where dothese kids get these ideas from? when we were their age, we would not have dared!

trish: wait till adi grows up and then we will talk :P

mona: he tries :)

usha:acquiesced obediently??? not this one, no m'mam :)

naina: I suspect his dad told him that once.

mira's mom: actually, me too :)

K3: nah. I try, but he is looking at my ace so intently, even a twitch and he grins and jumps. the devil.

rayshma said...

hehe... no no..i just need my husband to be home! ;)
and heyy... i'll give him TWO diamonds...! tell him to wait! :D

DotThoughts said...

raysh: I thought you would say, I'll give one to his mom :)
