Facebook III

Not that many this time.

Anna: Main shaadi mein jayungi, lehenga pehen ke, chudi, bindi, earring pehen ke, stage pe jake dance karungi. Phir Santa Clause mujhe le ke chale jayenge.
Me: Kahan le jayenge Santa Claus?
Anna: Bombay.
Me: Bombay? Bombay mein kaun rehta hai?
Anna: Salman Khan.
Me: !!!
I really wonder what goes on in that little head.

At exactly two and half years old, Anna gave her first ‘interview’ today. Welcome to the rat race Baby. I wish I could keep you safe and away from the madness of this world for some more time.
Questions asked included what’s your name, sing a rhyme, identify animals, shapes, colours. She aced it :). I’m so proud that I don’t even care if she gets in or not. Their loss if she doesn’t.

Conversations with a toddler
Anna: Doggy blah blah blah. Doggy ki itniii lambi tail hoti hai.
Me: Tumhari tail hai?
Anna: Nahi. Mera to sirf bottom hai.
The second blood-thirsty story.
Snake aise aise karke ja raha tha. Maine danda se usse maar diya. To woh ‘chee’ karke mar gaya. The end.
Anna (to me – very sternly): Mujhe gussa mat ‘hilao’. Nahi to main gussa hoke tumhe bohot dantungi!

Anna’s first story.
Catty so rahi thi. Eyes close kar ke so rahi thi. Maine usse jaga diya. To woh uth ke mujhe kha gayi.
