Dear Ashu,

Every time Amma goes into the bathroom, she will definitely come out. She cant dig a tunnel in the bathroom and escape. She sometimes wonders about it though. It feels great that you think Amma is more important than a cartoon show. It feels nice when you follow Amma to the loo when you can actually raid the fridge. She also feels happy that you need her so much. But then no one absolutely no one, that includes you too, can ever knock on the door and scream at her to come out. Amma has nightmares still about the times when she was in the college hostel and could nt take a decent shower without someone knocking on the door and asking "How long will it take?" and then keeping their red buckets at the door claiming the right to use the bathroom next. She hated that. Now she has to relive the trauma all over again, thanks to you . But this time she is not even showering, for Gods sake!
Luv,
Boo.

It is indeed flattering to see someone so totally hooked on to you...but incredibly taxing as well, much as I hate to admit even to my own self

Thankfully Little Devil didn't do that but I know a few kids who did. I feel for the mums and their kids too.

i hate to admit this.. but you have to learn to go to the bathroom holding ashu on your shoulder.. my second one is 9 months old this week.. last week mom and grandma left her with me and went grocery shopping.. I had to, absolutely had to go to the loo.. so i left her on the floor (screaming)..then i left her on the bathroom floor (on the little mat) and still screaming for me to pick her up.. so I had to go while holding her on my shoulder !! kids can be cruel sometimes ! what can I say..
