Mother, writer and daydreamer. Also chocoholic and chick-flick lover. But mainly mommy. To two boys, at that! When not escorting my Elder One (EO) to karate class, I'm trying to get in as many cuddles as possible from my Younger One (YO). And when not doing either, I'm hard-at-work trying to maintain a steady relationship with my laptop. And as for the Man I Married (MIM), well, let’s just put it this way – even though we share a bedroom, our most meaningful conversations are held over the cell-phone!

Fly me to the moon...

So I'm sitting near my comp, trying to work when this little elf of a boy, all of two-feet, comes shuffling up to me like he's doing the penguin-walk. He's got a twinkle in his eyes and a mischievous grin playing about his lips...and that's when I notice the pencil.

The long, fat thingamajigs that you can't write with but which little boys with violent imaginations can put to 'good use', as in "Knights and Dragons", "Aliens vs. Monsters", "Sword Fighting" and my personal 'favourite', "Let's Fight Near Baba's 48" Plasma TV and Give Mamma a Heart-Attack". In this particular case, the said pencil had found pride of place between the little guy's legs.

And so my baby boy waddles up to me, stops and says, "Mamma, I Harry Potttaah!"

And then he flies off on his broom and disappears in a cloud of giggles.

Magic, I say!

Mon,Ansh: These moments truly are magical!

happyfeetnme: Thank you! Unfortunatle innocence fades, but may magic and imagination always carry them through!

Still: Thanks babe!

Piper: Seriously! I think fantasy writers the world over actually pick their kids brains to churn out the phantasmagorical tales that they do! Hmmm, excuse me while I go hound the EO for a fanciful tale... ;)

Shankari: Well, the smile was pretty potent and magical as well!

Indyeah: Bless you sweetie. Only a loving heart can truly imbibe the essence of these moments and that's why you were able to receive a heartprint...because your own heart is so warm, loving and generous.
