Mummy : Is mummy or ?? older?
Mal : ??
Mummy : How do you know?
Mal : there are stripes on ??’s face.
I think what he meant was wrinkles. wahahah!!!
I was eating some Japanese snacks brought back from Japan by ??
Mal : Mummy, let me eat. You cannot eat so much
Mummy : why ?
Mal : because you have fat tummy. I can eat because I am still growing.
Today, we were walking outside Borders at Wheelock Place when we passed by a man afflicted with dwarfism. Mal stopped, fixed his gaze at the man, looked at the man from head to toe, puzzled. He turned to me and asked
Mal : Mummy, why this auntie so short?!
the man was as tall as Mal. I was too shocked and was afraid that the man would hear him. So I ushered Mal away without offering much explanation.
I shall explain to him about dwarfism first thing tomorrow morning.
