For the past few days my wonderful lil one Marvell was stricken with sore throat, high fever and running nose, hence went to see doc and was given a two days off from school.
My lil one Marvell can sometimes be a joy even in times of sorrow, i mean he can really cheer you up even if he is down with sickness.
Just the other day, as i was tending to him for he felt weak, i helped him to put the toothpaste and asked him to go and brush his teeth. He came out from the washroom, not at all pleased with me and i asked him if he had finished brushing his teeth, he sulked and blurted this out at me," Papa, guess you still dont know me well after so many years i have lived with you"
I was like lost at what he said and i asked him what did he mean by that, he reiterated," papa, you still dont know which toothbrush is mine after so many years we stay together." i felt funny with his reason,then trying to cover my own ass,i replied," Marvell, that's because, we change our toothbrushes every six months ma."
Not wanting to concede defeat, my Marvell looked at me intently into my eyes and gave me another reason that pushed me to a dead end by saying," ya Papa but you should know my favorite colors ma, just like i know you like black and blue after so many years living with you." i was dumbfounded and lost for words.
