Enamored with our A mama – we talk about him non-stop when he is not there. We talk with him non-stop when he is.
Fascinated with cows, dogs, horses – and the fact that all we need to do is step out of the house to see them.
Learning the joys of home-made butter – nothing we eat these days is complete without a dollop of the same.
Confused about the endless Nanas and Nanis – some new Nana or/and Nani come every single day to meet us. We can’t seem to keep a track of them all.
Angry with mosquitoes – they gave us aaoovvii in five different places in a matter of 10 minutes, one of them on our eyelid. Our right eye is currently swollen shut.
Pretending to talk to our Paa – all the time but for when Paa calls. Then we get too excited to say more than ‘Hi Papa’.
Enjoying bath time – with a bucket and a tumbler and all the water that gets splashed around.
Playing hide and seek – with sheet and blankets that are hung for drying. The cool, wet, clean sheets are so much fun to hide inside, so what if our legs are visible at all times.
Unsure about tu, tum, aap – so we use whatever we feel like at any give moment. So we speak like ‘Nana kya kar rahe ho tu’.
Waking up at 4:00 in the morning – just because Maa is up taking care of the little one. We greet the day with a huge smile on our face and start jumping right from get go. So what if Maa wants to sleep and keeps telling us it is not time to get up yet. And no it is not because of jetlag.
Excited about sleeping – next to Maa. Hence the waking up early.
Upset about our A mama – not being in town for the next couple of weeks.
