Happy Diwali

Amma, I’ve got a new policy: Don’t worry, be happy and eat lots of coconut barfi!

It’s even got a nice rhyme to it, don’t you think?

– Life advice from my 10 year old daughter this Diwali.

Cough, cough

Me:                            *with a hacking cough and sore throat*

It was a cough, it was a cough,

It was a cough that took her off.

Older daughter:      *rolls her eyes*

Me:                            *continuing piteously*

It was a coffin, coffin,

It was a coffin they took her off in.

Younger daughter: Bye amma.

– When all you need is someone to give you a hug and make you a hot cup of tea, and instead all you get are unsympathetic brats.

Amma the Great

Me: Can you help me set the table?

Her: Done amma.

Me: You didn’t set a place for me? You forgot me! How could you forget me? What would you do without me, your Amma the Great?

Her: I’ve heard that the thing that makes people great is their modesty.

Cheeky brat!

Money, money, money

It’s always nice to have your parents’ hand in your business. A purely financial hand, not an executive hand.

– Says my older daughter on hearing about her cousin’s experiment with setting up a doughnut stall at her school fete. Parents’ money? Yes. Advice? No.



Of selfies

Her: Amma did you click any pictures on your trip to Mumbai?
Me: Come look, I clicked so many. Appa and I were trying so desperately to get a good selfie of ourselves at the Gateway of India.
Her: Amma, selfies are an our generation thing. I would be surprised if you got a good one 🙂

– Just exactly how old does the cheeky brat think we are? Besides, the only reason we came away with nary a good selfie is due to the fact that there was too much sunlight, too little elbow space, too many people jostling…
