The title of this post is the same as my previous post.

Time: Yesterday.
Place: Booville.

Me - So Ashu, Paati is leaving tomorrow huh?
Ashu - *silence*
Me - So who's going to be here?
Ashu - Thatha.
Me - And when is he leaving?
Ashu - October.
Me - Yes. Perimma and Perippa came right? And then they left. Paati came and shes leaving tomorrow. Thatha came last week. And he ll be leaving soon too. And THEN?
Ashu - *in an eager voice* Then Antu will go back into your tummy?
Me - !!!!!!

As the wise Pasupathi once told, "That that person. Their their worry."(Avan avanukku avan avan kavalai!!!)

ps.
Yes, mom left today and I stepped into the kitchen to make tea for the first time in 3 months. I know. I'm spoilt rotten. But its time to stop being a pampered daughter and pick up the reins. And Im trying to do just that. Vera vazhi?

asaaan said...

LOL at her question.

PS:I know how hard it is once the family leaves. There is a sense of emptiness , it takes(at least for me) a week to get over it. HUGS

YY - Mebbe you trained her. After all one cant trust these older siblings that much, can we? :)

Asaaan - My moms a specimen, I tell ya. The house is so silent even though we are 5 people at home now. Shes like a hurricane, in a good way! :(

Kodis mom - Apartment? Thats worth another post. No luck so far and we are staying put in the same flat. Thankfully, the agent agreed when we took back our notice. Phew! Otherwise we would ve been truly c/o platform!

Laks - I thought I was preparing her. Kids!

anantha-krishnan said...

your blog is amazing.. :)) love ur style !

Sue said...

Oh dear... She's so sweet...

And you too. It's so painful when mom leaves home. I went through the same recently and entered kitchen after 5 months. Moms really exist to spoil daughters. But its all worth...

Let me tell you (don't tell my mom) **cough**.. Actually it wasn't as bad as I expected. A new mom feeling gave me the strength and it was quite nice to take control of the house!!!

dipali said...

All the best at your fresh stint at managing the house with two kids and no Paati in it! Ashu's logic is impeccable:)

DotThoughts said...

holiday over?? that sucks.. you are not a spoilt duaghter, just an overworked mom who got a well deserved break. So, where's Antu?? Ashu is sooooooooo funny. Like mother, like daughter!

Confounded! said...

ROFL!

Madura said...

"That that person. Their their worry"
my gosh, thats the wisest, loveliest thing i have read all day, no no, all week...probably in a long time.

and ashu's worry...well, from one mommy to another, with tears in eyes a la all mothers, that is so evocative and touching.

ps, i know this is not good blogger etiquette- you in zurich or geneva?
