Traffic Trouble

During her play time at home, Iman lined up all her toy cars in rows, making a little group cluster. Then she climbed on to her tricycle, rode up behind the cars and then sat there looking bored. After a couple of minutes of watching her just sit there patiently, my curiosity got the best of me and I asked her…

“Iman why are you just sitting there?”

And she replied…

“I’m stuck in a traffic jam.”

And this is "pretend play" for a child growing up in Dubai!

Another absolute classic! I swear, if I hadn't met Iman, I would be beginning to wonder that you make up half these stories.

Ha ha ha, D! I know what you mean. There are so many times that I retell the happenings of our life and people look at me funny.

Iman is a little one (in size) but she is so FAR ahead with talking. Sometimes her incredible intelligence shocks me.
