This post is for the bubbly Kismitoffeebar who was sweet to ask me for some S updates quite sometime ago. So Kismi, here it goes πŸ™‚

S has been in the ‘ I want to grow my hair long’ mode for quite sometime now. So, one day, I tried to make her eat the curry leaves in her rasam rice instead of letting her push them aside. ‘ You want long hair no? Then eat these leaves. They will make your hair long’, I said. To my surprise, she obeyed by putting the leaves in her mouth. After eating them, she ran her hand through her hair and asked, ‘ Amma, has my hair grown long now?’. Talk of wanting instant results!


This was when S started going to her new school in June. She came back home one noon and was regaling me and my mom about her day at school. She was narrating about the other kids in her class. She said, ‘ I spoke to one paapa ( baby!) Β in my class. Paapa’s name is JP’. We nodded our heads. Imagine our surprise and laughter when she continued, ‘ I asked paapa ‘are you a boy or girl?’ Β What!! The JP kid seemed to have obliged S by replying that she was a girl! ‘So did you tell her your name S?’, I asked after I stopped laughing. ‘No, Amma. She said she will ask my name tomorrow, So I’ll tell her my name when she asks tomorrow!’. Mom and I could only continue to laugh πŸ™‚


This was again about six months ago, when S was, well, a bit more younger :). She used to leave behind a few sips of milk in her glass almost every other day. One day MIL told her , ‘ If you waste milk like this, the cow is going to get angry and will refuse to give you any milk’. The brat replied, ‘ Paati, our milk comes from milkman uncle and not the cow!’. Β MIL just didn’t know what to say πŸ™‚


Last week, S had drawn a girl with a skipping rope. MIL wanted to pull her leg. She said, ‘S , the girl’s kudumi (pony) is on the top of her head standing. It should be a bit down, no?’ S didn’t hesitate even for a second. ‘ Paati’, she said ‘ The girl is skipping no? That’s why her kudumi has gone up like that!’. MIL was lost for words Β as much as she was lost in her grand daughter’sΒ spontaneity.


PS: Am trying to hunt for that drawing. Will put it up as soon as I find it. Promise!

    I know the trick of all moms.. making their kids eat curry leaves, coriander leaves, pepper (from Pongal) and what not – in the name of long hair, healthy skin etc… When we meet, I am going to warn S πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ *now I need to hide somewhere before you spank me * πŸ˜›

    loved the story of the meet. ANd, must say S is so cute. The part about eating curry leaves and then checking her hair made me remember my childhood. My mom used to say the same about eating spinach and I’d check my hair length the next morning πŸ™‚
