Bigger than thou


My humble attempt to teach Sonny the concept of size.

I showed him a picture of himself when he was just a year old, and said, ‘Look, that’s baby when he was ONE year. Now, you are THREE years and are so much bigger’.

He replies, ‘You’re right. Like, a fly is tiny. And I am HUMONGOUS.

Someone, fetch me the Dictionary, please!

  1. Kids!!!!!!! Even i googled for the exact meaning of Humongous :O then slowly it dawned me from my memory bank :S

    How am i going to answer my kid :S

    LR, better be ready.. 3 years down the line, imagine HOW sharp kids will be!

  2. I dont think that there is any need for you to teach anything to that smart boy. He has learnt things perfectly by himself. Special Bear Hugs to the cutie boy !!! LOL πŸ™‚

    Thank you, Uma.. he has finally learnt A, btw, which is a big relief for me πŸ™‚

  3. I am so impressed. Thank God my kids are much older and cant freak me out

    I have to second you on that, Ritu! Kids.. gosh!! I wonder how THEIR kids will turn out!

  4. He actually said the word humangous?????? wow !!!

    Seriously! 😯 I had to Google to find out the spelling first! Btw, u got it wrong too.. heeee hawwwww!!! πŸ˜€

  5. So what if he said humngous
    what is the need for all this fuss
    Children today are smarter than us
    and there’s nothing more to discus.

  8. Kids these days outsmart us in a matter of seconds!!! πŸ˜€

    They do, indeed, Smita. And its quite a scary thought, isn’t it? I mean, its always 3 going on 13 or 30?!!!! πŸ™„ 😯

  9. so whats the meaning for that??? Ask him whether he can teach me.. I am so poor in English… πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  10. Hi , this happens always here . Today my son was playing crazy machines cd ,where they can make machines themselves. I just asked how e do it. His answer was ” Brain cells!Mom” . I didn ask him if he meant I didn have them. He may just tell the truth !
    Gosh! How do they learn so much, and from where? Beats me, Ash!

    Love ur son ! It is nice to knw our ids know more than us ! Btw, is this humungus something in Ben 10 ? I am not googling as I always do, I will ask my son /daughter and tell you what they think ! Cool na ?
    LOL! That is certainly cool. One mommy to another, trying to learn stuff from the next generation! Hugs back to you and the little ones πŸ™‚

    1. Hi Pal, here is my son’s reply. Humongous means huge. Humangasaur is an alien in Ben 10. He even explained to me Humongous means huge, Saur means alien dinosaur and that is why it is humagasaur. I told him saur just means Dinosaur.

      To tell the truth I thought humongous is some kind of fly. lol!

    1. Thank you, TLT πŸ™‚ My brat is almost 4, and I’m afraid to have conversations with him any more!! I think sign-language is far better πŸ˜‰
      Btw, I enjoyed reading your blog too.. will make another visit soon πŸ™‚

  11. Aww πŸ™‚ LOL!!! And now you will never forget this word πŸ˜† whenever I hear it I too will remember this blog post and a little kid who claims he is humongous πŸ˜†
    Who did he hear using it?!! πŸ˜†
    πŸ˜€ LOL, thanks IHM. I really don’t know, maybe his dad, but even he doesn’t normally use such big words! Or the great TV maybe!

  12. Goodness gracious! HUMONGOUS-thats one heavy-duty word for me! We have much to learn from today’s kids,dont we? Your sonny is a smart kid, Pal! πŸ™‚
    We certainly do, Deeps! Too smart for me to handle 😦
