A was singing bits and pieces of a kids' song. I recognized the story being the "Ugly Duckling" classic. He confirmed that they listened to the CD of the story in the Club House were he stays at after school. I like this story. So I told him that it was a classic and that we used to watch a cartoon called "jooje ordak-e zesht" in Persian which was the illustrations of this very story. I narrated the idea in a very brief version ... "and the ugly duckling grew up to become a swan. Have you seen a swan? They are very beautiful. The duck are pretty but the swan are the most beautiful birds, at least I think like so" when he interrupter me "just like you mommy"... My heart was melting.
