This is from a couple of years ago
Ayaan has a bike. It was a tad bit small on him.
He also has a hand-me-down bike, that is a tad big on him.
So I bought him a bike that was just the right size. Came back home. Sent him inside. Put the bike in the garage.
30 minutes later Safya called me complaining that Ayaan slashed his bike’s tires.
HE DID WHAT NOW?
The little devil literally took scissors and poked holes in the tire :(. But what would compel a 5 year old to do that, you wonder? I wondered too, so I asked.
Zeeshan: “Why the … what the … why … why did you do that?”
Ayaan: “I asked for the blue bike and this one isn’t blue”
Never mind that the blue bike was almost full-size. Seriously, this boy will be the end of me!
(Update: from 2 years into the future - It’s amazing how much this kid has calmed down ever since he started school. Thank you, school!)
