I'm getting so amused by Betu's requests. One day he wants to drive a car, the other day he demands to have a dog in the house and today it was a cat that he wanted us to keep.
Yesterday I met a friend from the neighbourhood who was taking a stroll with her Pomeranian. At first he was getting scared of the dog but after I patted and stroked it couple of times, he wanted to touch but was still very scared.
Somehow, half willingly he touched the dog with one finger :D And a while later he wanted to take the dog home but still wouldn't touch it. When we came without the dog, there was lot of fussing and tantrum throwing. It went on till he went to bed. But by the morning when he woke up, he had all forgotten it.
Today in the evening, he saw a cartoon where a boy had a pet cat. And suddenly he started to demand to keep a cat at home.
All this while, since yesterday, I have been telling him why we can't keep a pet at home but he has answers to each reason of mine. When I said since papa mummy go to work and he goes to school and daycare, there would be no one to take care of the pet at home, to give food he promptly said "Main usko apne saath le jayunga" (I'll take it with me) :D
