‘S’nippets – 4

January 3, 2013

The other morning, S was tossing about in bed. She had just opened her eyes and I was sitting next to her. She suddenly said, ‘ I am getting scared Amma’. Worried if she was not keeping well, I asked her what was happening to her. ‘ All the months are just getting over fast Amma and it will be June soon. Then I will have to go to UKG’, she said as I listened wondering what could be the problem with that. ‘ I don’t want to go to UKG because I want to be with N ma’am only. That’s why I am scared’. Phew! I was relieved even as I suppressed my smile thinking about ‘all the months are getting over’.

I told her that she would get used to the ma’am in UKG. ‘Didn’t you like M ma’am in Playschool? Then you started liking your S ma’am in Nursery. Now it’s N ma’am in L.K.G. So, you’ll start liking your U.K.G. ma’am also. Let’s see who is your U.K.G. ma’am’, I told her. ‘ I already know! It’s R ma’am’, she said. ‘Don’t worry.You will start liking R ma”am too, ok?’. A slow smile spread across her face as she nodded her head.


One of S’s other worries these days is about her friend DR’s views. ‘Amma, DR always says ‘not nice’ about anything I wear or take to school’, said S with a sad face. ‘ It’s ok. maybe she doesn’t like them. You like what you have, no? That’s what matters’, I told her. ‘Yes Amma, but N ma’am also likes my things. She always says ‘nice’ to me’, she beamed. ‘See? N ma’am likes. So don’t worry about others’, Β  I reasoned with her. ‘But I like everything that DR gets. She doesn’t like mine. She says ‘very nice’ to BM(another friend) always’, S declared sadly again.

I decided to become a wicked mother for a change. ‘Why don’t you also tell ‘not nice’ to DR next time she gets something new to school?’, I suggested unwisely. ‘But I like everything she gets to school’, S protested. ‘ Just say it chumma (simply)’, I persisted. ‘No, Amma’, she nodded her head and said firmly, ‘ N ma’am says ‘God will punish’ if we say things chumma(simply)’. ‘Hmmm…then leave it S. Appa and Amma get you nice things and you like them, don’t you? So, don’t keep thinking what others say, ok?’, was what I could tell her. Thankfully, the conversation ended there for the time. But am sure it will come up soon again.


This morning, on our way from home, a cow crossed our path. On seeing it, S suddenly shouted ‘Thank you cow!’, as we let the cow pass. Surprised, V asked her about her reaction. ‘Appa’, she squealed, ‘ The cow gives us milk, no? That’s why I said thanks to it!’. V and I laughed out aloud. Kids !! Wonder what made her say that today..



PS: I had considered taking part in the ‘Blogging Marathon’ proposed by LLT. But when I really thought about it, I decided I could no way post for every single day of this month. I some how am comfortable posting only when I really feel like it. Thanks LLT, for having invited me to be a part of the marathon, butΒ I certainly wouldn’t have done justice to it.
