R had a piece of paper in her bag. In it was written…please make her learn the dialogues of the teacher marked in red with expressions if possible.
The paper included three fullscape papers with dialogues between a teacher and a student on how the student meets a teacher and then how the teacher remembers the student and then they talk about the ‘good old days of school’ yaada yaada
Couple of things
1. I have no idea why they have asked her to do it
2. The teacher’s dialogues are not very long but I think pretty long for a 4.5 year old and then of course she needs to know when to say what dialogue
I call my parenting guru – my Amma for help
Errr…she says just keep on repeating it in front of her na..she will get it..
yaa right *rolls eyes*
R is refusing to learn it..and I am ready to pull of the 10 remaining strands of my hair
Appa Amma call us on Skype (this means things are really desperate in the R household…we hardly resort to Skype unless its an emergency like this one!)
Appa :RM Why dont you just read it out for us
I start reading it..and then mid way Appa stops saying okie okie understood
Appa: ahem RM
RM: What appa?
Appa: errr…you know something..
RM: yes appa
Appa: To be honest it is extremely boring..how can they expect a kid to be interested in this
RM: !!!! et tu brutus or something in those lines
Amma advices that I dont force her into it and if she doesnt want to do it, just write a note to the teacher..
R being my daughter..not make it being RD’s daughter
R: Amma, aap note and all dont write..I will tell teacher, that it is not at all interesting and mereko nahi karna
This from a 4 year old..did I say I am shuddering her teenage!
For those who are curious, RD doesnt seem to be too bothered about it..let her learn if she wants or else its fine..though my constant nagging made him do a half hearted attempt with R on Monday evening!
For those who are still curious, yes it is definitely boring gah!
