Buzz is growing taller faster than I can keep up..err buy new clothes for her. One day I looked at her as I dressed her to realize her pants could pass for capris. Which meant a trip to the store for me, and so off I went. Got a couple of new jeans for her. Washed, dried, ready to wear, I took one of them out Monday morning. Buzz taook one at it and started screaming:
Yeah Didi ka, me ka nahein.
No matter what I said, she refused to wear them. They looked too long to her eyes than the jeans she wears regularly. And anything bigger had to belong to her Didi. Frustrated, making no headway, I gave up, got an old pair out, got Buzz dressed and out the door.
We were moving a few things around when I came around a box with Buzz’s clothes from a year back. Buzz of course did not remember any of them. She was fascinated with them. Took them out, sized them up. Looked at me:
Yeah chote Bhaiya ka.
Yeah Buzz, it has been a while since your Didi and chota Bhaiya left but you still miss them. But I am glad you got to know them to miss them.
