One morning this week, Khalish woke up way earlier than the usual 8:00 a.m., yet, I was still half-way through the house chores. Yet, I couldn't complete anything because the two-year-old was clinging to my pants while begging me, with tears, to join him and the play dough. I was flattered that he found my company enjoyable (and I was simultaneously aware that he had no choice as I was the only company available at home when the daddy went to work). Nonetheless, I was also adamant about completing the house chores with the domestic-mood around.
It was then that I exploited Khalish's obsession for lorries.
"Would you like to watch lorries on my computer?" I lured, with excitement!
"Yes!" so he was bought.
I actually put a slideshow of the lorries I drew for him. There were only three photos, but, each was displayed for 10 seconds, and accompanied with Khalish's selection of songs (which happened to be among my favourite, too; Pomplamoose's Mister Sandman and Glee's Over the Rainbow), repeated for an umpteenth time.
In the end, he was happy, and, I was definitely over the rainbow. How glad I was about his obsession with lorries, and my obsession with visual documentation. Heh.
