Living with a 5-year old kid

Living with a 5-year old kid


Here's my take 5 hilarious experience living with a 5-year old kid.

1. Mastery in Literature:

From Aesops to Disney fairies, from Alice to Zena, from Angels, cherubim, and saints up to mummies, Dracula, and leprechauns. The options are limitless and the plot is infinite. You ought to load yourself with stories and tons of stories, just like the minstrels with their instruments while reciting their tales and imaginations. There was a time wherein my 5-year old niece asked to give her a bedtime story, my stored knowledge in stories was really exhausted and my mind was really vacant. I left with fabrication – again, which I usually do. My fabricated story, that my nice had bought, goes like this “One night, on a far, far away land, there was a kid living with his uncle. The kid asked his uncle to tell him a bedtime story, but his uncle was very busy with his work that he couldn’t longer take a sleep or a nap. Then, there was a bedtime fairy who came to their door and with a slashed of her magic wand, the uncle fell into a deep sleep like this…” with that ending, I didn’t move and assumed that I was sleeping. Yippe, my nice bought it.

2. Art Attack:

Not just the dandy heart shapes, the cut out figures, or the coloring book. For a 5-year old kid, art is an expression and things are all floating in the magical realm. Uncle, draw me a castle, a pony, gargoyles, the princess in the tower, the prince frog, a witch, an ant, an octopus…etc. Buy a 5-year kid a water color and it will only last for a day. Buy a 5-year old kid a box of modeling clays and you’ll get awed by the abstract results. Buy a 5-year old kid a set of 100 crayolas and get worried of finding the sticks everywhere. The most hilarious request by my 5-year old niece was when she asked me to draw her imaginary friend. What the…?

3. Be better than Bob the builder:

Construction is a major subject with a 5-year old kid. Make the sticks to walk, build the empire state with the boxes, make a dream castle for the Barbies, and the cycle of construction, renovation, demolition and re-construction.

4. Move over Tyra:

Ever dream of being a model? Well, if you’re living with a 5-year old kid, get ready to hit the catwalk. Here’s the usual routine every time I’m working with the computer, she’ll come to me and will start the “hair-styling”- as she calls it, with her Barbie Doll’s hairbrush and will wrap up the hair styling with a ponytail to my crowning glory. While my fingers linger the keyboards, her hands delicately applying make-ups to my face. And Viola, after I’m done with my work, she’s also done with her beautification. Now, she’ll bring the mirror and will make a long, long, long laugh at me.

5. The theater actor:

My niece loves the animating story of her toys. She’ll speak in behalf of Barbie and me for Pony or Woody wood Pecker. And the story is again limitless, from mushy encounter to loving tragedy, from horror to comical...etc. But the acting that I learned to my 5-year old niece was to shout “ouch” and cry. Yep, whenever my niece and I play wrestling, injury is inevitable and my acting craft emerges during the crying times. If she hits the ground I should simultaneously say ouch and cry with her. The purpose? To make her believe that I got much trouble than hers. “Shrugs”, life’s like that, lol.
