I was lying in bed between the twins before they fell asleep. Amu was already fast asleep. I had Sid on one side and Nish on the other and we were talking about our day. We spent the evening at a friend’s place. At one point, Sid said “i don’t like ____ uncle!” “Why?” i asked. “I am scared of him. But i like Swati aunty! and I like Anu aunty! To which Nish added from the other side “I like my Aai!” (aai = mother in marathi). Not to be left out, Sid promptly said “I also like my aai”.
The spontaneity was just wonderful and almost left me teary eyed!
I could not have ended my day on a better note!
