Check out what the Indian Mommies are upto at

February 24, 2010

At the breakfast table today - 2.

So there I was making tea and singing loudly "Govinda, Govinda Feel The Fire Govinda" while Ashu was drinking her milk.

Ashu - Amma? Did you say feel the fire? But fire is dangerous amma. You said I should nt play with fire!

Me - !!!!

What now? A woman cant sing(in my case yell!) peacefully in her own house?!! The little brat sings about cows jumping over the moon, black birds baked in a pie, boughs breaking and cradles falling without batting an eyelid but has problems with "feel the fire"? Is she kidding me? What kodumai, I say!

No Appa & Amma. I usually don't go about singing random Kollywood songs first thing in the morning. You both did nt bring me up that way. But today was an exception and its sort of a Saami Paattu anyway, no? :) And dont worry. I ll never ever sing "Kalyanam dhaan kattikittu odi polaamaa" in front of your beloved grand daughters ever. At least not this early in the morning! ;)

Should you not appreciate her for not commenting on how bad you were yelling?? She just wanted you to understand preach what you practise,tats it.

Tell me about it Boo ... I am so tired to singing these nursery rhymes all the time ... there are such gems out there and we mommies can't sing / enjoy any of them.

Just the lyrics of Odi poyi Kalyanam dhan kattikalaama sounds very intriguing :)

I threaten to sing if they don't do what I ask them to quick enough. Usually enough to increase their velocities exponentially.

p.s.: And all these years I thought I was a decent singer :( :)

Hi Boo, this is my first comment on your blog...I think I ahve read most of your posts over last few months..what really prompted me to leave a comment was when I read one of your old posts at random a couple of days back on 'National Delurking day'...I actually did not evenr ealize at first the meaning of it ;-)...took me a while to figure out that it is exactly what I was doing :-)

Anyways, I really njoy my time reading your blog your sense of not so big on writing comments...but just wanted to let you know...that you got a lot of delurkers out there in the net who are great admirers of your blog....keep the fun going...ashu and antu are going to ahve a blast when they start reading your posts :)
