My Child & I

Secondborn is fast becoming a person full of reasons.

The following conversation involves a perfectly prepared glass of milk.

Adult: " Kanna, time to drink milk so we can go sleepy"

Secondborn: " Sududhu" (Hot)

Adult: (pours milk into a bowl to make it right)

Secondborn: "Aadai" (cream layer on top)

Adult: (filters the milk)

Secondborn: "Give half, it will spill"

Adult : (reduces the amount a bit)

Secondborn: "Kaaram" (spicy!)

Adult: (adds a little sugar to the milk)

Secondborn : " Venaam (don't want) - Very late, I'm sleeping"

Adult is now ready to hit the bed as well!

My Child & I : A Birthday Special

Second-born was inseparable from my new sis-in-law (SIL). My brother was feeling rather outdone with the way second-born was showering her with attention.

The two were enjoying an afternoon playing outdoors and second-born starts jumping off a high bench.

SIL (nervous voice) : "Kanna! No jumping, you might get boo-boo.."

Second-born, true to his daring nature, repeats the feat.

SIL (stern voice): "Listen to me, Kanna- I said no jumping, else no more playing!"

Second-born, to whom SIL has always been a pal and her adult stature is now a surprise, reacts by first folding his hands at the back defensively acting like an adult and makes an annoyed face .

Second-born (Waves a single hand at her and in a loud voice): "Hey, You go to school!"

With both of them getting even, they get back to being Be(nch)st Buddies forever!

Happy Birthday dear SIL!
