Dad helps him tidy up ; while washing the little guy's face, a bit of water falls on second born's shirt.
Second-born: "Appa! No spilling water. You're making me 'dirty'!!!"
Too bad for dad! :)

Mom manages to save Firstborn's Computer workbook, dad's ticket printout and the walls ; while second-born gets ready to color them all.
Firstborn walks in after school while second-born is busy coloring away; this time thankfully on an old monthly calendar.
Firstborn: " Oh.. What is he doing?"
Mom (now exhausted): " Um.. just trying his new crayons, I guess"
Firstborn (who loves drawing, himself- joyfully): "Aha, I can see he loves Orange color and he's making a Fire! "
Well, it does take an artist to recognize another!
And, let's cut some slack- Mom was tired & does not have a trained eye for modern art!

While the friends are chattering away, a neighbor stops by to return a brochure
Friend (welcomes neighbor) : "Come on in K! You've met Sakhi , right?"
Neighbor (recognizing me from a recent gathering) : "Yes, yes- I know this one, really nice seeing it!"
Was left wondering if neighbor was referring to Sakhi or an item from the brochure.

Grandpa unpacks two Tanjore paintings of Lord Ganesha.
Firstborn (observes the pictures, and declares) : "Only 3 differences in the pictures- In the first one Ganesha is sitting, has a book and the trunk is to the right; and in the other Ganesha is dancing, has a drum (mirudangam) and has trunk is to the left!"
Grandpa (impressed): " Very Good, that's my boy!"
Grandma (wanting Second-born also to shine): " Kanna, how many hands does Ganesha have?"
Second born (licking a laddu): "Aiyyo! Today is Sunday, my holiday, Ok?"
Well, he has his laddu and is eating it too!
Just for the count : This being the 150th post- I dedicate it to my boys -hubby, sons 1 & 2!
