Maa was telling me that a special friend of mine (and yes she is my friend not Maa’s since she takes my side in all things) asked Maa to write about Paa and me. But Maa being Maa, who knows when she would get to it. So I am taking matters in my own hands.
Where do I begin? hmm..with the fact that I save my biggest and bestest smiles for Paa..no..let me think..hmm..sorry I am little no..so it takes me a while to make up my mind..
OK let me tell you guys this, every morning after I wake up and Maa takes care of changing my diaper and feeding me, the two of us get down to playing, till it is time to go wake Paa up. Then Maa picks me up and I get to knock on the door (which is closed so that I don’t disturb Paa by barging in to the room before it’s time..or so says Maa). Once the knocking is done, Maa turns the knob and I get to push the door (Yes yes, I am a big girl now). I get my first glimpse of Paa for the day and I almost jump out of Maa’s hand in my hurry to get to Paa. Maa sits me down on the edge of the bed and I quickly scramble up to Paa’s face. My hugs and tugs and giggles (his beard is ticklish, you see) is what Paa wakes up in the morning to. We bestow huge smiles to each other, Maa forgotten completely.
Then the fun begins. In between hugs and kisses, the two of us roll all over the bed, play with the pillows, hide under the blanket, and laugh non-stop. If you did not know, Paa is my humongous, gigantic, obstacle course and I have a blast just overcoming the ever-changing, challenging course.
After a while, Paa carries me to the kitchen where I get to hang out playing with spoons and bowls (which Maa does not let me..mean her) while the morning tea gets made. Then as Paa sits on the couch sipping his tea, we play the game of..oh the tea-cup is hot..touch it with a little finger and then say ‘Phoo Phoo’ to help cool it down, where Paa also secretly sneaks in a couple of crackers for me.
By the time Paa’s tea is done, Maa comes in to the living room, all dressed to head to work and I get to hang out with her, while Paa disappears in to the bathroom.
Paa and I are best of friends, and have a blast together. Maa always shakes her head at the mess we make, but who cares. I love my Paa and that is the important thing.
What, Oh yeah..Maa is coming to get me, as it’s time for my sleep. So let me hurry off, before she catches me with her laptop. Don’t tell her I wrote this OK, please.
Loads of hugs for all of you,
