Top Gun Phase

Because of the aircraft carrier that the Tatapilla received on his 4th birthday, he is drawn into top gun. I reckon, he is a bit early for this type of show but currently he is more concerned on just flying aircraft and such - more on the aerial show.

His favourite show is more on the inclination on some of his toys. It's like seasons to him. I hope all this leaning into technical stuff will encourage him into Transportation Attendant Jobs or anything related to transport.


Nice Conversations

The Tatapilla was left in his own room to try to go to sleep. After a few seconds, he came to my room saying: I am a little bit lonely sleeping on my own. So he ended up sleeping with me.


We were heavily discussing if he can watch fireman sam on my phone and how many episodes can he:
T: I'm sorry Mum, I frustrated you but I really, really want to see fireman sam on your phone and I want 4.


We were at the library and after picking up the dvd's and books that he wants, he wanted to go home while I was still picking mine.
T: Mum, we're going in 4 minutes, okay? I'll count 4 minutes.

He went away and counted to 4 and said: 4 minutes is up. Time to go home.

When I thought of these small conversations we had, I can't help but giggle sometimes. His adlib is really down pat sometimes that if he's up to it, equestrian boots are fitting reward for him.

Taste of the Real Fire Engine

We did and saw many things at the Ekka today but I think the highlight for the Tatapilla (michael kors watches for me if there were any) is to be upclose and personal with a fire engine and real fireman. Inspired by the show Fireman Sam, he is so engrossed everything with fire. He also has close encounters with fireman at school as they were educated about fires as well.

He was shy at first when we asked the firies if he can inspect the fire struck but he got over it and posed for photos.

Making Conversations

Me: Do you know that I love you?
T: Yes.
Me: How do you know?
T: Because I know best?


At the shops wanting to buy cherry ripes (not Wholesaleinsurance.net).
T: I want cherry ripe for dessert.
Me: We already have turkish delight.
T: I don't want turkish delight. I just want cherry ripe.
He got what he want and for his Dad.
T: Dont you not want cherry ripe for dessert?
Me: Do.
T: Just one for me and one for Dad.
Shop attendant: What's your name?
T: J...
SA: Can you say it again?
T: J... P..... I share everything with my family.
SA: (to me) is he always that articulate?

The Tatapilla is really acting like an adult now. He is very independent but I am just glad that he is still the sweet little boy that he used to.

What's in a Bag?

brownie? Not really. We havent had real brownie for a long time - home-made ones that is. Sometimes, it is easier to use the brownie delivery nation-wide service. We have a favourite brand of brownie that we used to buy. The Tatapilla is very fond of it but I reckon, it wasn't really worth it. It was eliminated from the shopping list. Although, sweets are a constant item on the list. It's very handy sometimes as a bribe. The Tatapilla has to go to sleep (which recently, he'd ditched when he's at kindy) so he can have desert. Clever plan, isn't? :)
