Amma, I don't like you.
Its OK. You don't ve to like me.
I am not going to talk to you forever.
That's OK too.
You are not my friend anymore Amma.
(interrupting) I don't want to hear one more word from you.

All this for sending baby sis to India with her dad???

Ah! Good question. the answer is - I dont know. It was for NOTHING. She came back from school. this started in the car and ended at home. If I ask her the reason, her answer will be, take a guess, "because I dont like you"! Nothing is more annoying, I tell you! Grrr....

Hii. Been a silent reader of all the posts, I enjoyed them very much.
Even my son who is 5 yrs says " I dont like you. Bad amma, Bad appa" when things dont go his way.

(kudumba) arasiyalla idhallam sagajamappa... Good thing is the way you reacted.. better to quickly forget it.
'ippo adichipom apuram...' is guaranteed now but may not be the case when they are in teens....\\

Poppins said...

And because I can't resist:

Poppin: I won't talk to you
Me: Why
Poppin: Because you will hit me that's why.
Me: Wha-? When did I hit you?
Poppin: When I was a baby
Me: *Stumped* Then rallied - I never hit you as a baby (So not true but ahem)
Poppin: You're not my friend.

And so on in the same vein.
Check your phone bills - I suspect Poppin and Ashu have been talking to each other :p

Sumana said...

I swallowed the title of your post only to read gauri's comment of you being a terrific optimist. Man, we are having the time of our life as the kids grow.

Bad: As they grow older they dislike you more often

Worse: They give you specific reasons for disliking you

Worst: Mostly they are right

B o o said...

Its our space - I ve said worse things to my mom!! *shudders*

Gauri - go on laugh! Grr...

Chennai girl - Most of the times, she says it for no reason! I ve stopped asking her why these days! sigh!

Anon - Nah! Im not worried about that. daughters are leeches!! I should know! :D

Poppy and CA - phew! Im glad for some company here! and "you re not my friend" is very popular in this household too!

Sumana - Sadly true!

Inba - LOL! Circle of life, huh? Im only surprised it started so early. But kids these days are fast, are nt they?

Agila said...

Welcome to mom's of growing up kids club, Poo. It is very very hard to get some nice words about their parents from the kids mouth.
As you said, I always think of the things I said to my mom. Pay back time!!!

Shobana said...

Hehehe! I know this will come back and bite in the backside sometime but couldn't resist it, u know!

Anonymous said...

Darling daughter says 'I hate you' and she is 6 months younger than Ashu. And somehow what she says doesnt hurt me at all. My standard response is this - whether you love me or not i will always love you. I dont think i can say this even to my hubby!

And when you publish the BooBook (Boobukku - like Dubukku, I sometimes read his blog too) include the comments too! They are as much fun to read.

Diary Of A Stardusted Dreamer said...

hmmmm maybe I shouldn't be waiting so eagerly for my daughter to start speaking after all. she's quite a babble-box already and has started saying something that sounds suspiciously like "kya hai" (kyaaaiii) in an indignant tone whenever I try to get her to do s'thing she doesn't want to!

SwB said...

Haha ... but I reckon her saying "I don't like you" can mean only one thing - that you are a damn good mom!

Hope all is fine with you S. Starting to get cold I guess now in Zuerich. Has it snowed yet? It should have.

Much love.
