Pete and his yukoo!



My five-year-old cousin, Anushey, has always been the star baby of the family - and for a reason, too. She is fun-loving and comes up with the wittiest things to say at just the right moment. You talk to her and she repeatedly cracks you up. Having grown up watching baby programs, like Dora and Barney, she is quite bright for her age. She came up with this drawing on Bakra eid. It cracked me up. I don't think I was ever this creative at her age. All I drew were childish houses, with those typical conical-shaped mountains in the background, curly clouds floating in the sky and weird-looking looking birds flying into the sun peeking out from between two mountains (seen it? been there? done that?) But, this is one creative kid (mashAllah). Her abstract drawings are even better. What did I do at the age of five? I was a dumb, dumb kid.

You were clearly not the dumb kid. You were the kid with the mad grin most of the times, the kid who found many many ways to lick birthday cakes without people noticing (you or the cake)...




... until video cameras came into the scene. Hahah! ;)

Alas, all that was acting (bad one that too). But, hey, I got away with it, didn't I? Yeah, I guess I wasn't that dumb after all.
