Conversations between me and my little one! Note: AB calls me “Amma” (Mother in Tamil).
Playing with her kitchen set…
AB: Amma, here is your coffee.
Me: Thanks, It is yummmy!
AB: Yes, I added chilly powder!
In the context of shifting to a new house…
Me: Will you help me with bags and boxes when we move to new house?
AB: <Gives me a puzzled look>
Me: What are you thinking?
AB: They ll be heavy, so you carry.
Two baby pigeons taking shelter in our balcony.
Me: Did you brush your teeth?
AB: Yes. “eeeeeee” <shows her teeth proudly to me>
Me: <With a grin> Did you ask the baby pigeons if they have brushed their teeth?
Runs to the balcony and says “Show eeeeeeeeeeee” to the pigeons and scares them!
Me: Do they have teeth?
AB: No, they only have a nose!
Dinner time; AB eating curd rice (her favorite) from my plate..
Me: You should not eat from other’s plates. It is a bad choice.
AB: Amma, you are a good girl, no? You should learn to “share” with me. <continues eating from my plate>
Reading a series of picture books..
AB: <Shows a picture of shark> Amma, what is the name of this fish?
Me: Shark <with an animated expression of fear>
Me: Where can you find sharks?
AB: In my “Animals” book.
