Yesterday evening, RD picked up R from the daycare, and since her friends were downstairs, the two of them stayed down and R played.
R came up. We did the usual fight of having a bath, drinking water fast, needing to eat dinner so that we can go to sleep fast yaada yaada.
As we were finishing dinner, I asked R, ‘What did you play downstairs today?’
R: Potty sitting
R: Arey amma woh potty sitting wala game
RM: What kind of game is that??? (At this time all kinds of weird thoughts came to my mind and I was ready to strangle RD for not keeping an eye on her)
R: Arey Amma, woh game hota hai na..where you sit down in a line and then one person runs and everyone else catches that person..and then one person comes and says ‘po-po’
R: Arey Amma, you know its funny, everyone kept saying po-po….
I now literally bang my head against the wall.
RM: You mean, kho-kho?
R: yes yes…amma that one only
RM: toh potty sitting kyun bol rahe ho usko..
R: arey like we sit on the potty na..in eastern toilets..something like that only we were sitting na..thats why..
I give up. Really, give up!
*Eastern Toilets means Indian toilets. Since we call the other ones Western Toilets, she calls the Indian ones as Eastern Toilets *eye roll*
