I should explain the name of the blog “Little Temujin”.
Our little one is not the typical blue eyed and blond Russian kid. Actually, he has big brown eyes, long lashes and brown (seems curly) hair. He is definitely mixed but we are not sure what races. So, in absence of a true family tree, we decided that he is a distant relative to the legendary Genghis Khan whose original name was Temujin.

Silly Things

Me: "Vanie, what is this (pointing to a picture of a cow)?
Vanie: "A cow!"
Me: "What does the cow give us, Vanie?"
Vanie: "Miiiilk!"
Me: "Yes, and where exactly does the milk come from?"
Vanie (very proud of himself): "The dupe" pointing at his own little hiney
- in English: the=the; dupe= buttocks in Bulgarian

...stunned and at the same time amused by the answer of my almost 2 1/2 yr old one, i decided that i am not ready to expain ...

With Easter coming up, Vanie now knows about the Easter bunny... except he calls it Bunny Easter.

We are flying to Bulgaria next month to see the grandparents so we have been trying to get Vanue used to the idea of getting on an airplane. So we usually say "in just a few weeks, mommy, daddy and Vanie will get on an airplane and will go see grandma and grandpa".
Vanie's version of that phrase "Grandma, Grandpa get on airplane". Well, he is really fascinated with airplanes and helicopter so as of a weeks or so ago the phrase has been changed to "Grandma, grandpa get on helicopter!"
