more wisdom on life and death


So after our earlier encounter with the dead roach that did not “come on” again ( we had another interesting conversation today (we = sid and nish). We were all playing in the afternoon and Sid was pretending to be a bear running after us. I was really tired and after a bit i flung myself on the bed and asked them to play on their own so i could have some shut eye (like that was happening!). Anyway, the bear growls continued and i simply closed my eyes and ignored the noise for a bit. Suddenly i hear Sid’s fairly concerned voice calling out to Nish “come here fast!”. “What happened??” asked Nish. “I think we died her.” “huh?” asked Nish. “Aai…i think we died her! She is not talking now!” 

That was the end of my silence because i burst out laughing and “undied” instantly

Mom - a word that defines me... I smell of oats, johnson's and home baked cookies I am pink, purple, green and orange and so is the floor my kids color on. Flour on my clothes and a brush in my pocket, my glasses bent out of shape and smudged with tiny fingerprints. I can't remember the date but i know almost 40 pictures books by heart. I wake up humming 'wheels on the bus'and i talk with my fingers and eyes and mouth. My bag carries band aids, napkins, wipes, crayons, papers, candy and sometimes my wallet. I know all the parks and very few of the restaurants in my neighborhood. Most of my shopping is diapers, books and paints My phd certificate lies in a roll, the frame now contains an abstract work of art by two year olds and i am prouder of that piece of paper. mom - a word that defines me!

  1. It’s so good to be able to share their shenanigans from so far away! I narrate them to the hubby and then we miss all of you madly. 😦
