As soon as she came in through the door, Miss 5 announced proudly, “I’ve got a present for you!”
“Ooooooo! A present? Thank you! I love presents!” I gushed.
“This is for you!” the little missy handed ‘the present’ over ever so proudly.
“Thank you! That’s a lovely penguin!” I enthused.
“I’ve got a present for you!” said Miss 5 with a big smile on her face.
“Mmmm, what have you got for me this time?” I questioned.
“Here, I drew this especially for you!” she replied.
“What a beautiful flower! Thank you,” I praised.
“Who’s that in the picture?” this lucky recipient inquired.
“Oh, can’t you tell? That’s you!” she proclaimed loudly.
“Gee, it sure looks like me!” I laughed.
“That’s Max, Xan and I at the playground,” informed my generous giver cheerfully.
“And did you have a grand time?” I asked.
“We sure did!” said she.
I still haven’t figure out what this drawing is about. Any ideas?
“My mummy bought this from Taiwan and I give it to you!” my gift bearer declared.
“Thank you. That’s very kind of you. Please remember to thank your mom for me,” I answered.
I might as well enjoy the idolisation while I can for one really can’t tell how long it is going to last! 🙂 This precocious little lass is presently quite fixated on presents. Here’s a charming story which she told me today.
A lion came visiting one day…..
A lion came to my house to visit me one day. It brought a present for me! It was a necklace, soooooooo beautiful one!
(Oh? What did the lion say to you?)
The lion asked me for a present too!
This story reminds me of a story which my two kids enjoyed when they were little lads.
The Tiger Who Came To Tea
And what do you do if a lion really comes to visit?
