Our favorite family bonding activity latey is playing with finger and hand puppets.I am not referring to the cute animal puppets from Ikea (Thanks, Ameronie!). Definitely not Furky, the freaky furry puppet from Blue Magic. We kept that away ever since Aki started enjoying chewing its tail.
Friends, meet TicTacToe Octupus and Baby Uod (Baby Worm)
Our usual characters are actually Baby Uod and his mommy, Mummy Uod. Last week, I thought I will give Mummy Uod a break to see how Baby Uod will interact with a new playmate.
After a minute or two of swimming in the imaginary waters and sliding down my leg.
Baby Uod: I Hamdi! (I’m hungry!)
Octopus: Oh, ok. So what do you want to eat?
Baby Uod: White rice and Egg, Fiiiis. (Fiiis = please)
And so, Baby Uod and Octupus got a table (my foot) and started eating. When out of nowhere…
Baby Uod (Aki let’s out a deep sigh and then slouches): Sooo sad me!!(Aki frowns)
Octopus (So surprised because they were happily eating imaginary rice and egg): Oh why?! What’s wrong, Baby Uod?
Baby Uod (Aki looking down with a frown): Mummy.. office… miss..
Going to work makes me sad sometimes. I know Aki gets sad too when I leave but I did not know that he misses me during the day. Hay. How I wish my office is near so I can go home during my breaks. Instead of sitting inside the shuttle van for two hours during the commute, I would be playing more with Baby Uod if only work was not so far.
