Among R’s favorite activities apart from crying, is asking questions. She seems to be a never ending bundle of questions…I try and answer most of them, for some, I dont have answers which is when I go to Google
I guess most kids are very curious no?
1. I am reading a story for her from the magazine Magic Pot, which talks about a boy seeing the lotus and how its called the national flower, then a peacock and tiger meeting him and telling they are the national bird and animal and finally the peacock giving him a mango calling it the national fruit
Without skipping a beat, the brat asks me ‘Acha Amma toh National Vegetable kya hai?’
I answer my favorite line ‘Ask Appa; 😉
Anyone knows what is the national vegetable of India because my man of all solutions doesnt have an answer to it.
2. Continuing on the mythology craze, the mil has told R that all Goddess are mothers yaada yaada
Today morning she drinks her milk and tells me ‘Amma, aap mere mother ho kya?’
RM: yes beta
R: toh aap Goddess ho kya?
RM: hahah! I wish beta, nahi I am just your amma
Okay she says and nods her head
Acha amma, abhi Hanuman umachi ne shaadi kiya kya?
I try to hide my laughter…no beta, abhi nahi
R: Toh kabhi karenge, koi good girl nahi mili unko?
3. We see some advertisement in the newspaper with Salman Khan on it.
R: Amma dekho Salman Khan hai? Dabbangg wala..
R: Amma, aap face kyun bana rahe ho? aapko salman khan nahi acha lagta
R: aisa bolte hain, aisa bolte hain, very bad, kisi ko bhi acha nahi lagta nahi bolte okay, woh bad manners hai!
