Kidspeak.

The other day Ashu called me "Amma, Amma" and pointed at the picture of an umbrella in her book and said "Umbella". I said "That's right dear. Good job! What color is the Umbrella?" She thought for a second and said "Red". I said "That's blue, Ashu". So she says "Blue aa? Good job Amma"!!!!!!!!

~~~~~~

When Hd was out of town, I was having my morning cup of tea in the blue mug which usually Hd drinks from. Ashu saw me drinking and said, "Appa Tea. Appa Tea." God knows how kids observe so many things. I mean, after all these years, ask Hd what colour is our sofa and he ll think for a minute!

~~~~~~

Yesterday Ashu was running around and in the process kicked my sandals which were lying on the floor. She looked down and said "Oh Sorry" and picked them up and brought them to me to wear. And did I tell you she kicks me in the mornings with glee?

~~~~~~

She has this book called Animal Homes. Theres an empty kennel in the first page with "Who lives here?" And in the next page theres a dog in the kennel. Then theres a empty basket in one page and a cat on next and so on. So Little Missy opens the book and asks me "Wheres the cat" looking at the empty basket and I tell her its in the next page. But that does nt satisfy her. She has to know where the cat is in THAT page. I tell her "Ashu, this is a basket and on the next page theres a cat in the basket". But shes not happy. She always open that page and asks "Wheres the cat?". I think shes *this* close to asking "Why"! And when that day comes, my dear readers, I ll be pulling my hair and running on the streets!

~~~~~~

Today we took her to the new Paediatrician who is near our house. I'm glad I found him because he was wonderful. Very friendly and kind. Ashu was scheduled for a vaccination but we postponed it because shes still on antibiotics. The doctor got all her details, checked her and pronounced her "very smart" after observing her play with the toys he gave her. Hd and I came out of the office with a proud grin in our faces and shes not even in school yet. How pathetic are we? ;)

Hey, you know whenever A's paed checks him up and says good stuff about him ... we're beaming and feeling all fuzzy inside too .. and I am grinning like an idiot until we leave the building ...
So, I can relate!

Ashu's new antics sound as cute as always .. I think girls have a much keener sense of color than boys .. for that matter , men :-)
I have live examples in my dad and J .. ha ha.

Ashu looked so cute in Prague photos - esp the one in the sleeveless sweater with a white band on her hair.

Loved #1. You don't need a doctor to confirm what even we (strangers) know. Ashu is smart ... and sassy. Must take after her mom, me thinks.

Julyvee stole the words from my mouth.. your patheticness is average (we all are)

the mad momma said...

me,me,me..i wanna be pathetic too! :)

I think its a kiddie thing. the Brat sees me have my mug in a cup that has the logo of the news channel i used to work for. everytime i put on that channel he gets excited and yells "mamma chai".. i think boys lose the power of observation as they grow...

and ashu is a bright little button.. and we're proud of her too.. does that make me even more pathetic because she's not even my kid?!
