We’ve been on vacations on a beach resort the last few days and Nadir, my son has really been in his element. He would strike up a conversation with anyone and everyone he would see, from the desk manager to the housekeeping staff, the room service staff to people in the elevator and even the guy who came to fix the internet.
He was coming back from the beach and on the way he told the guy in the elevator where he had been. “The sand was very clean” he said to him, “I’m going to take it home with me.”
In the playground he was having a conversation with an older boy.
Boy: How old are you?
Nadir: I’m 7 years old. (He’s just turned 4)
Boy: Really, you’re 7 years old???
Nadir: Actually I’m 10.
At Santa’s visit to the Kids Club he wanted to go back to the room and play with the toy that Santa had given him. We, on the other hand were eager to know what Santa had said to him. After a lot of probing he said, “He gave me the present and told me to go to my room to play with it!” Smarty pants!
I recently bought him a soft toy (cat) and this has become his favorite. He calls it his pet and took it with him on the vacations. When he was leaving the hotel room to go to the beach he told his dad to look after his cat. When he came back his dad was not in the room. Later when he returned he questioned his dad, “You left my cat ALONE?” Poor Dad was at a loss for words!
He told the lady who saw us to our room at Check-In that he would like to see ‘N’ written on the hotel (instead of H for Hilton) so that the hotel would become his. He also wanted to know how much the hotel was for. The little guy has big plans!
