Out of the mouth of Ashu.

Ashu: Amma! What are these?
Me: Storage boxes, Ashu.
Ashu: For our room?
Me: Yes. More boxes that you girls can take stuff out of and make the room even more messy! *rolls eyes*
Ashu: You know, Amma? You can just ask me to clean the room and I will. You dont have to say mean things to make me clean. You can be nice.
Me: *runs to update her blog*


One Saturday, we went to the nearby Ice Rink so that Ashu can ice skate. It was terribly, terribly cold and I asked Hd to go home with Antu and come back later to pick us up. After an hour and half, Ashu and I decided to walk home instead of troubling the duo. It was a 15 minutes walk and even though it was freezing, (-10* C) we enjoyed the walk home visualizing hot cocoa! Just when I was about to enter our apartment, Hd calls me and asks where I am and if he can come to pick me up. When I told him that Im almost home, he says that he is out shopping and was thinking that he ll pick me up on his way home! I did the only thing that I do well under these circumstances, I hung up! Looking at my face Ashu asked me what was wrong.

Me: Im upset, Ashu.
Ashu: Why? Is it because I kicked that ball of snow? *panics*
Me: No. Im upset at Appa.
Ashu: What did he do?
Me: I asked him to go home. But hes not home.
Ashu: So what, Amma?
Me: Why cant he ever listen to me?
Ashu: May be he thought he is helping us.
Me: What help? We both walked in this freezing cold. I had the good intention of not disturbing him and Antu. Thats why I decided to walk. What was his good intention?
Ashu: Its ok, Amma.
Me: Its not ok. Why cant people follow instructions? Why? It was a simple instruction. Go. Home.
Ashu: You know, Amma? May be people dont want to listen to your instructions all the time. May be sometimes, they want to listen to their own instructions! OK?
Me: *runs to update her blog*
