R and RM are coming in the rick back home
RM: Did you eat your dabba?
RM: What was it? (The evil me, wants to cross check whether she actually ate, though I only packed it for her!)
R: Roti n beetroot subji
RM: okie good
a pause for a second
R: I threw away the subji in the dustbin
RM: too shocked to answer..spluttering What what..why why
R: mereko acha nahi laga (I didnt like it)
RM: So why did you throw it away
R: other wise N teacher (her daycare teacher) gussa karti na!
RM: but you dont waste food na
R: so give me bhindi next time
RM: too shocked to respond!
R and RM are again coming in the rick back home
R: Amma, aaj khane mein kya hai (Amma, whats for food today)
She is worse than any MIL I tell you..God gave me a nice MIL and compensated that with the pint sized!
RM: Rajma and rice..appa is cooking rice at home
R: But I already had rajma in the morning na..same same kya khane ka! (Whats there to eat same same)
RM: Wondering if this is at 3, whats for me at 13…
R and RM are again again coming in the rick back home
RM: Do you have homework today
RM: What is it
R: sleeping line, mereko bore ho gaya hai sleeping line draw kar kar ke (I am bored of drawing sleeping lines)
and this when she has to draw just 10 sleeping lines!!! Wonder whats in store for me in the future!
R gets up in the morning and looks at me and demands ‘Appa kidhar hai’ (Where is Appa)
RM: gone to office
R: arey, mereko bye bolke jane ka na (Arey, he should have told bye to me and gone)
There my nani amma, next time Appa ko yaad dilati hoon!
Every monday R has white uniform..Why would schools have plain white uniforms for children is beyond my understanding
But, we manage to convert the white into brown and grey, dont know how!
RM: R what do you with your uniform
R without batting an eyelid, “play in it!”
RM is too disgusted to even respond to that!
RM: R go and get that book from the other room
R: I am not going
R: udhar lion aa jayega (Lion will come there)
RD sometimes does this thing of khud ke paao pe kulhadi (Its an hindi expression, I dont have the translation to that)
so RM and R enter the house and we can smell something mouth watering…RD says R will you have maggi today
R: yayayyayayay! maggi
RM sniffs around and is pretty sure its not maggi he has cooked
to his credit, he has cooked some yummilicous paneer subji and rotis (they are misshapen but made with lot of love, so lets not dwell on the shape size etc)
RD : R aaj appa made paneer subji and roti only for you (Liar, he made it for me bah!)
R: but mereko maggi khana hai (I want maggi)
RM rolls her eyes and RD is like but I made paneer for you
R admanantly I want maggi
RD: but roti with ghee..errr…
R: maggi, maggi, maggi and it turns into a full blown tantrum
This man I tell you, when will he learn!!!
RD, RM and R are sitting for dinner…RD has managed to make some yummy egg biryani and we have potato chips to touch with…which are less so RM takes out the banana chips..after all the hue and cry about egg and all…R eats only the chips
RD: R why are you eating only chips for dinner..thoda rice khao
R: nahi chaheye (dont want)
RD: why you wanted na egg
R: Theekhu che (Its spicy)
RM: no nahti
R : Che ne (it is)
RD: then you eat plain rice
R: uff..okie thoda daalo…(I put the rice) she looks at RD and says..bas le liya (Enough, I took it)
RD and RM stare at her wide mouthed!!!
