*sigh* I give up and we continue with the other alphabets.

We have always been a very ‘I love you and love you’ couple. We would exchange ‘I love you’s’ quite a few times, in a day. Joy’s arrival added more reasons for expressing it. We would even express the same before  Joy but a new born cannot speak, right! When he grew a little and could express himself in actions, I taught him a way.

I made him touch himself with his palm, then his heart and then the person sitting opposite to him (whoever he wanted to convey the message to).  But the self obsessed boy he was, he would touch himself, then my heart and again himself which meant Joy loves Joy! (Don’t roll your eyes yet, there is more!)

So suppose, someone talking to him on phone would say ‘I love you, Joy!’, he would place the phone down, touch himself, touch the phone’s heart and himself again!(lets roll our eyes together!)

I wanted to change this(where is my share of love, dude!) and immediately started working on it as soon as he started blabbering. I said ‘I love you’ many a times in a day and he would answer by showing those hand moments! He even tried to manipulate me by doing those moments all by himself whenever he would see me angry! Slowly, he learnt the word love (buvv). All I had to do was say ‘I’ and ‘love you or buv you’ would follow from Joy’s mouth. And if I say a complete ‘I love you’ he says ‘Love you’.

So whatsoever happens, an I is always followed by ‘buvv’ and a simple ‘J’ or ‘am your mumma’ can never, ever replace it!

P.S. How do I prepare myself from the complaints that I will be getting in future from his would be school! *gulp*

  1. Too smart and cute. You definitely are going to be in trouble in future when joy goes out saying love you to everyone that says I. 🙂 Just imagining you when the kindergarten teacher complaints about this to you 🙂 lol.. it is funny.
