This pic was snapped during one of his 'tamer' moments. I think he was 2 years old in the pic. He's pretty much a good kid despite his foul mouth at times but even then he only unleashes it on those who annoy him so I guess he's entitled to that.
Last week I was teaching him how to play cards. He was picking up pretty quick mashalla. Sometimes I have second thoughts about that though, especially when he brings them when I'd rather be doing something else - who can say 'no' to such a cute midget? One of the times while we were playing cards he told me he 'likes' me. Lol I guess that was pretty obvious considering the moment he opens his eyes in the morning he comes looking for me. He usually eats breakfast with me as well. Yesterday I had been gone for most of the day and had left before he woke up. When I came back he asked me to take him out. So I took him out and brought him two of his favorite cartoon characters.. Tom & Jerry. Serious plus points for me lol. He walks around clutching them tightly. Super KAWAIII!! It's seriously cute when he speaks. He's yet to learn the difference between languages and uses both english and arabic words. Like one day we were playing with this colored string. I picked up one and told him it was green. He got so indignant and corrected me saying: "LAAAA hai akhdar!" I said ok, the next string I picked up was a black one so I was like "Uh this one is aswad." He gave me a look that seemed to say I was such a hopeless case. He grabbed the string, pointed to it and said it was "BLACK". Lol talk about confusion. I found out that anything he knows in arabic he doesn't know the english for it and vice versa. So like when he says "sayara" he has no idea that it's called a "car" and will argue you down if you try to tell him it has another name. He's a pretty funny kid. He's the only thing I actually miss when I'm not in AD.
