Things my kids make me do

Conversation with my 11 year old after we attended a great session on must-have skills for teenagers and almost teenagers.

Me: So many things for you to do and skills to learn…

Her: Amma, it’s not like you have it all. Remember the list that aunty made about how adults should have a mix of everything? Well, you have some things to do as well.

Me: Really? Are you saying I’m not perfect? Tell me one thing on that list that I am not.

Her: Irresponsible!

New life goals – become irresponsible! 😊

Back to school

Is school absolutely essential amma?

– Asks my 11 year old very hopefully, as she reluctantly heads back to school.

Lazy summer holiday. Non stop fun with friends and cousins. What more can I say.

What’s in a number

Her: I like 9+3= 12 better than 8+4=12.

Me: Really? Why?

Her: I feel 4 and 8 are capable of so much more.

Me: *I can’t even…*

– Only my math loving daughter would think of numbers as having personalities. Hope 4 and 8 live up to her expectations 🙂

Excel-lent news

I never thought Microsoft Excel could be used to do math. I always thought it was only used to plan vacations. Atleast that’s what amma does.

– Exclaims my 10 year old to her father, looking at me accusingly, as she discovers a whole new world with him.

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!
