imran is three

Imran turned 3 today and I can't help but be proud of what my boy has grown into. Although he can do better at sharing his toys with his little sister and be more friendly to people he meets, he is such a sweet little thing at heart.

He says things like "I love your SO much Mama" and my favourite one is "You're MY best Mummy!", which is a little strange but melts my heart regardless. Then there are all these conversations with him which I keep meaning to write down, but never got around doing. But I will document this particular one which we had a few days ago on a typical afternoon while playing at the patio.

He was climbing all the way up the ladder to 'fix' an artificial cobweb stuck on the grill which was meant to be part of the decoration for his party on the weekend. The thing is flimsy and fragile, and we have just put it there to test and see how the thing works.

So I said, "Imran, you're not touching the cobweb!"

Somehow looking a little surprised he said, "But why Mama?"

To which I answered "Because that is supposed to be for your party and we don't want to spoil it before your party, do we?"

His face turned sour with dissapoinment and he slowly came down the ladder before crying some real tears which was rather unexpected. Didn't think he was so set on the idea! But anyway he settled quite quickly after a cuddle and an explanation.

However about an hour later, he came up to me to receive yet another cuddle before saying, "Mama, I really feel sad when you get SO upset with me. That's why LAH I cried just now."

So I said, "Oh, don't worry Imran. I'm not upset anymore now"

And then he said something which I thought was so out of line!

He said, "But I really feel like making you a card, put it in an ENVE-LOPE, and give it to you"

I was slightly confused about such a random idea, and asked him,

"And the card will say I'm sorry?"

He then answered, "No, the card will say - I LOVE you, will you come for my party?"

At that point I just smiled at such strange but cute randomness and tried very hard not to laugh, and said "Sure I'll come to your party!"

Happy 3rd birthday little muchkin!! XOXO
