Salman Khan Is All Set To Become Mama For The Second Time
My mom left me when I was just 19. When I’m having a bad day, I often find myself wishing I had my mom to talk to. I was having one of those days when I was putting the girls I babysit to sleep. Before I left the room, the 4-year-old sits up and says, “[My name], there’s a face behind your face.”
I asked her for clarification. “What do you mean there’s a face behind my face?” “There’s a lady standing behind you,” she said, “and her head is on your shoulder.” “What does she look like?” I asked her. “She looks like you but a People had always told me how much I looked like my mom.
When our dog left us, and we were not getting any specific reason to what went wrong. Our then two year old said, “All her thoughts left her body.”
When my niece was 3, she covered up my head with a blanket and held it down. I moved my head out where I could see her. She said, “You can’t come out” and smothered me again. I laughed and said, “Why?” She gritted her teeth and angrily said, “Because I don’t want you to.”
When my cousin was two, her mom got pregnant again. One day she went to hug her mom’s belly and said, “Little brother sick”. A few days later her mom owing to some circumstances had to drop the baby.
My 3-year-old daughter was in the bath playing with her toys with me and laughing. Suddenly with a straight face, she looks me in the eye, and tells me in a serious little voice, “Mummy, if you bit and ate all my fingers off I wouldn’t love you anymore.”
I was with my sister, her husband, and their two-year-old daughter. We were talking about loved ones who had recently left. My brother-in-law went and grabbed a picture of his mother, who had collapsed in a car crash when he was six, to show me. When my niece saw the picture though, she started laughing. We asked her what was so funny and she looked at us and said. “That’s my special friend who sings to me”. I still shiver a bit just thinking about it.
I had to share a room with my 4-year-old for a few weeks. “Mummy when you were sleeping, I woke up and there was a ghost with no face standing over you touching your arm, it was taking your dreams out of your body with its mouth.”
My 6-year-old daughter was in the passenger seat a few days ago and looked at me and said, “Dad, when I’m seven I’m going to smash you. No wait, when I’m eight.” I asked, “How are you going to do that?” She smiled and said, “I’m gonna drive over your head with this car.”
“When you turn off the lights, that’s when the black circles come. They come down like this (holds his hands in the air above his bed), and they stay for a second, then zoop! they go inside! (slapping the hands to his chest).” Then, barely holding back tears, “I hate it.” -handshape
