Tall Story

This is how Hooty narrated yet another one of her ‘fairy tales’ at bed time yesterday:

“Once upon a time, there was a Adeline (She can’t say Aladin ;o)…Ammi, what’s the name of the princess? OK….Once upon a time there was a Jasmine. She met Cinderella. Jasmine said, ‘Hello, I am Jasmine. Who are you?’ Then Cinderella said, ‘I’m Cinderella. Who is this?’ Then Jasmine said, ‘This is …um…um...Ammi, what’s the name of the fish?…OK…then she said, ‘This is Flounder.’ And they ummmmm...went to see Adeline. They saw a pond and…and...they went swimming in the pond. They met Ariel in the pond. Then ummmmmm...they all went to see their parents. The End!”

Little Miss Grumpy

Hooty was being a little whiney and clingy last Sunday. At one point she became very rude to Hubs and he told her not to be so.

After a while Hubby asked her, “Are you going to be rude to Thaaththi again?”
H: “Yes, Sometimes.”
Hubs: “Why would you do that?”
H: “Because, I feel grumpy and mad!”

Our trip to Thailand was good (Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, Hua Hin and Bangkok)
Because Hubs’s cousin D joined us with her daughter L (8 Yrs), Hooty had a great time. L girl proved to be a good ‘big’ sister, giving into Hooty most of the time, so conflicts were less. During the last few days however, they both had mild fevers, so both were not their usual bubbly selves, and mostly kept to themselves.

Story Queen

My daughter has such a lovely imagination. It’s just pure joy to listen to her make up stories during bedtime. Yesterday, she narrated quite a lengthy tale. I hope I can recall it somehow (how I regretted not having a tape recorder in hand).

The story went something like this:

“Once upon a time there was a girl called Cinderella. She had five uncles. One named Joel, one named Uchia, one name Ryan, one named Dongdong, one named Euan (all names of her school friends).
They all were Power Rangers. Cinderella was a beautiful, pink power ranger. Then Cinderella said she wanted to read a bedtime story. So her Mommy said OK and the Mummy said ‘Once upon a time there was a tiger….(No matter how much I try to wrack my brain, I can’t remember the story of the tiger.) :o(
And then Cinderella said I am sleepy and said, ‘Good night everybody’.”

She switched the lights off and was ready to settle down to sleep her self.

I won't be updating the blog for a couple of weeks as we are off to Thailand (Hooray!)
