Snippets of Conversation

Lately, the Tatapilla has really demonstrated maturity of an adult especially in conversations. An adult can carry a conversation with him like he's one already - well maybe if it's about area rug, then that would be out of the question.

I was eating toast for breakfast on the patio. I tossed the crust to the birds.

Tatapilla: Do you like the crust, Mum.

Me: No, I don’t.

Tatapilla: Me EITHER.


We were going out and I asked him to find his hat. It was on my desk.

Tatapilla: Here is it. I was wondering where it was!


The Tatapilla was singing in the bath “what are you thinking of” – from the air supply song.

Me: What are you singing?

Tatapilla: Michael Jackson song.

Me: No, it’s not. It’s air supply.

Tatapilla: What’s air supply?

Me: It’s a band.

Tatapila: What’s a band?

Me: A group of people playing music.

Tatapilla: and dancing, and MICHROPHONING.


He was taken to school late that day so he had his morning tea at home. While he was still
eating, Daddy called that it’s time to go.

Tatapilla: I’m still eating. I can’t do two things at the same time.
