This Diwali we purchased crackers for my 4 year old son. When he was a year old he saw his father blast a bomb (cracker) in front of him that made him burst into tears out of fright. the very next day he was running with high temperature.
So this time we got just the mild ones – flower pot, sparklers, fire pencil and the chakri. The gun that was bought was played with without the roll caps else it was for me or my husband to play with the caps.
On 28th he went downstairs with his father armed with a packet of crackers, to return back after sometime with his hands covering his ears. The reason being there is BOMB BLAST downstairs and hence he doesn’t want to go down. 🙂
Made me smile at the little one’s innocence and the wrong choice of words.
