Toddler vs Mother - Office life is easy..

Aarav stood looking out the window in a very pensive mood and said to me,
"Tumhala khoop simple asta."
(You guys have it simple)

"Kay?" I asked.



"Tumhala writing nasta." and then he pretended to sit with a laptop, "Nustach asa asa typing kela ki zhaaaala.. kahi writing nasta."
(You don't have to write anything.. only typing on the keyboard.. that's all. Noo writing at all.)

"Mag tumcha difficult asta Ka?"
(So you have it difficult?)



"Amhala khoop writing asta na. Ani ghari ala ki tu parat writing dete."
(We have to write a lot. And when I am back home you make me write again.)

The entire dialogue was in the theme of "oh the attrocities and tragedies of my life"

Let's switch kiddo. Seriously. Let's switch!!

Toddler vs Mother - Little cold Nudist..

In the midst of 17 extremely important morning tasks, aarav screamed, "Aaaaiiii​" and I ignored it and continued.

When I ran to see him in the other room, he was just out of the bath, dripping wet and holding the folded towel as a offering for me with big puppy eyes, "I am cold. Wipe me." Of course you are you silly wet nudist.

"Wipe meeeeee!!!" And so I did..

I wrapped him in the towel and vigorously rubbed him down giving special time to the dirt collecting spoons attached to his head commonly called as ears.
I rubbed and cleaned and scrubbed and wiped and scrubbed them in and out, holding his head in one hand and then alternating the action till....

"THAMB!!! Fadaychet ka mazhe kaan??"
("STOP!! You planning to tear my ears off or what!!!???")

Giggles! Ok sorry. I probably was a bit too rough 😝😝

Happiness is??
Small silly joys of life :-)

Toddler vs Father - My Father's a Lion!!

Aarav likes to take reverse KTs frequently. This was one of the amusing ones when Kaustubh, Aarav and I were just about to call it a night.

Aarav, "Baba, king of the animals kon ahe?"
(Dad, who is the king of animals?)

Jui, "Aarav, Lion ahe. Tula mahitie na?"
(Aarav, It's a lion, don't you know this?)

Aarav dismissed me, "Nahi. Tu thamb. Baba sang, king of animals kon ahe?"
(No. You wait. Dad, you tell, who is the king of animals?)

Kaustubh obviously was not going to give a straight answer if he was being put through a test, "Mi ahe"
(It's me. I'm the king of animals.)

Aarav smirked and taunted, "Mag Tu ja ki janglat rahayla."
(Well then, Don't you belong in a Jungle?)

Happiness is??

I think this was the loudest unladylike snort of laughter I have had in ages.
