Boy in bed

Dadu and Daddy

Dadu was a seven year old boy. He was naughty, funny and very mischievous. One day, his mom was unwell and he was looked after by his daddy. Dadu’s daddy asked him to go to bed as it was close to 9.30 pm.

Dadu went to his room. His daddy was watching television in the living room.

It was 9.45 and Dadu called, ‘Daddy, can you please bring me a glass of water to drink?’

Daddy was annoyed, ‘No way Dadu! You get it on your own!’

After five minutes, Dadu called his dad and said, ‘Daddy can you please give me a glass of water? I’m very thirsty’

Daddy replied, ‘No Dadu. I already told you!’

After five minutes, Dadu shouted, ‘Daddy can you please give me water?’

Daddy said, ‘I told you twice, I won’t! If you ask again, I will come in and spank you!’
Dadu was silent for a while. After 10 minutes, ‘Daddy, when you come to spank me, can you please give me a glass of water?’

Daddy was speechless!
