Month: March 2012

You, yes you!

Rants endless..
Ongoing anger..
Brows furrowed..
Expression irritated..
Smile lost in it all..
Do you even know what you have?

Out of proportion blown silly things..
Every word uttered is wrong..
Good intentions ignored..
Feeling in overdrive..
Nothing is ever right..
Do you realize the value of what you hold?

A pat on the head..
Someone to care enough..
To tell me right from wrong..
A hand to help..
Warm hugs for the kids..
Do you know how much I yearn for it?

With tears brimmed eyes, I watch..
Mind screams for you to stop..
‘What if’ rears its head..
Lost to time..
Lost to life..
Do you know what I would give to have what you have?

bole to..

We had to go to someone’s place for dinner but had some important errands to run before that. We were making our way out of the mall when Buzz started asking for something. We told her there was no time and that we would get it for her the next time. Full blown tantrum commenced. D tried talking to her and tried some more and then some more. Some 5 minutes later while strapping her in her car seat, a fed up D said,

Mumma se puch lo, wo haan bolen to le lena.*

Nahein Mumma se mat puchho, wo manna kar dengi.**

came the reply in a little voice.


Yeah that was my reaction. So much for taking all the pains of trying to teach them right from wrong!

*Ask Mumma, if she says yes then you can get it.
** No don’t ask Mumma, she will say no.

Question of the day

Buzz on seeing a pregnant lady turns to me and looks at Bugz that I am holding in my arms.

Buzz: Is mein eak chotta gate hota hei? (Does this have a small gate?)
Me: Kis mein? (What does?)
Buzz: Is mein (In this) *pointing to the stomach*
Me: Gate?
Buzz: Haan, nahein to baby bahar kaise aata hei? (Yeah, else how does the baby come out?)

HELP! All you wise people out there.
