It was the launch of The Dark Knight Rises, and superheroes were on everyone’s mind. Since Tiger is a big fan of several superheroes, I couldn’t help ask him about it…
Papa: Tiger, if you could be one superhero, who would you be: Superman, Spiderman or Batman?
Tiger: (after thinking for a second) Spiderman!
Tiger: (after another second), but with a Batmobile…
Tiger: (after another second), and with Superman’s cape.
What more could one want?
House vs Home
One evening, at dinner, Pumpkin (now, eight) was talking about a lesson in school that taught them about houses…
Pumpkin: Mama, can I tell you about houses?
Mama: Sure, you can.
Pumpkin: Houses have a roof, a door and windows. Houses keep us warm in the winter… etc. etc.
She was talking about the various properties of houses, and we figured that Tiger (now, four and a half) shouldn’t feel left out of the conversation. So, we involved him too.
Mama: Tiger, what do YOU think a house should have?
Tiger: (thinks for a second and then answers) Love.
Enough said, don’t you think?
