Don’t bother to search the dictionary for the word ‘deceive-ment’. There is none. But it means someone with the skills to deceive people, as in being cunning and manipulative.
This is a follow-up of my earlier blog titled ‘B*tches are born, not bred’
I was lamenting to the papa.
5xmom : I don’t know what to do with your son. He wanted me to give him the camera and when I told him a stern NO, he did not throw tantrum anymore. Instead, he change his tone to the sweetest voice and say, “mama…..puhleeezzzz” and showed me his puppy eyes.
5xdad : *looking damn proud*
5xmom : Tell me? How to deny a request like that?
#2 son (13 years old) : Your son has learnt the art of deceive-ment.
5xmom : Is there such a word? Where did you learn that?
#2 : Children know how to use dirty tricks to get what they want from age 18 months old.
5xmom : Really? How come you know so much?
#2 : Discovery channel.
*sigh* My toddler is now king of the household. He dictates everything, gets everything and no one can say NO to him anymore. He goes around the house with a camera.
It is so fun to have him calling,
“Mama, loook, Mao thiak”
(translate : Mom, look. Mao (a name he refers to himself) click (the camera))
No professional photographers have ever captured a photo like this. Only my 2 yrs old toddler, with a Canon A10 camera.
