Convo between Tiny & Little

I am with the kids who talk more and study less. Especially getting their homework done is a big deal, forget studies, that happens only once in a blue moon.
Tiny is going to be 7 and Little is 4.5 years.

Little: O is for Oxygen, he meant to say Ostrich
Tiny: You mad, O is for Olympiad
Me: Tiny, How can he understand what olympiad is? You should point to an object and tell him starting with O.
Tiny: But amma, how does he know oxygen when he does not even see it.
Me: (Does she know where oxygen is? so checking)So where is oxygen Tiny??
Tiny: In the air...

Me: wondering where she gathered this chemistry from ;))

Edited to Add:

Many of my pregnant friends that Little has noticed with a bulging tummy. He asked me a couple of times and understood that when babies are made in mommy's stomach it bulges out. So this morning giving him a bath, he stood protruding his tummy out (kind of convex shaped) to which i asked him:

Me: Do you have a baby in? Why are you standing like that??
Him: No Baby. Only Tiny will have a baby..... before i could digest that he says after she grows big.


  1. It's so cute. Just the kind of convo I hear sometimes. The big brother checks on the little sister - like "OK, so tell me do you know what 19 plus 2 is?" or "How do you spell Snag?" etc...
    Oxygen in the air is pretty good for her age. She is listening and taking in everything the brother learns!

  2. Is'nt it? Sometimes they leave us beyond words and sometimes you scream and yell and they never understand.
