Baby Vivu is a delight and is now excited about everything related to fire engines and firemen – he puts on his Fireman’s costume every single day and then assures everyone around to not worry as he will save them in case of a fire. He then runs around the house dowsing fires. In the mornings, he insists that I take him to his school via a circuitous route that passes a fire station, just so he can see the fire engines parked in front. He says “papa pleeeease take me from there” and when I ask him “why?” and that “we will be late for school”, he says “because it makes me soooo… happy :)” which melts my heart and, like a fool, I spend the 10 mins extra.
He’s making and losing friends very fast too..it seems it is a phase kids go through at this stage.. I am considered to be in his friends circle. When he is loving me, he responds to my question “baby Vivu who’s papa’s favourite baby?” with a happy “Vivaaaaan”. And when he’s upset at me for any one of many random reasons, he turns around and tells me “you aren’t my friend anymore” – like this morning when I didn’t agree to continue cuddling and sleeping with him past 7am 🙂
