L of a problem!

Hubby took Hooty to work one day and as usual she started asking questions about so many things. As many parents know…some things are hard to explain to a 4 year old!

Hooty: “Thaaththi, what’s your office called?”

Hubby: (trying to get off easily) “Well, the building where I work is called Noel.”

Hooty: “Thaaththi, how do you spell it?”

Hubby: “N…O…E…L”

Hooty: “NO! NO! NO! You said No ‘L’!”

Hubby: “But darling that’s how the word ‘Noel’ is spelled.

Hooty: (Whimpering and mad as ‘L’) “But you said NO ‘L’ so no ‘L’ in the spelling!”

And on and on it went and Hubby finally gave up and thought to ‘L’ with it and said, “OK then, no ‘L’.”

In Sri Lanka

hoo hooo....we are in Sri Lanka these days...

Went off on a four day trip with Hubby's family and mine to Loolwatte in the Knucles Range. The beauty of the hills around where we stayed is beyond description. I'll post a few pictures here once I get back.

A few interesting remarks of Hooty's:

Hooty after taking a few sniffs of Sri Lankan air:

"Humff...Sri Lanka (is) very smelly!"

Hooty comparing Singapore and Sri Lanka:

"Thaaththi, Singapore (is) not nice. Sri Laka (is) nice.Singapore (is) just buildings, buildings,buildings, buildings buildings, buildings,buildings, buildings.........."

Hooty while trying to 'fly' kites with her cousin:

H: "I don't want to fly the kite. I want to keep it on the ground."
Cuz : "You HAVE to fly a kite.That's why it's called a kite.Otherwise it will be called a 'downer'."
Hooty wanting the last word, "No! This one is called a 'downer kite! So it needs to stay on the ground."

Hooty on Cuz:

H: "I am going to marry Imeth Ayya when I grow up."
Cuz: "Marry? Marry me? ha ha ha....OK"

Hooty on childbirth:

"How did Kiriamma have three kids? Did she go 'pop', 'pop', 'pop' and pop them out?"

There's much more to jot down...but so little time. Will be attending a few weddings in the comming days including my sisters! Hooty will be her flowergirl. Sooooo looking forward to that.
