Growing up and talking

These days he constantly suprises me with his logic and understanding of language and

relations.Some random incidents :

Aryan was teasing me , calling me "You not Mumma , you Papa"
So I tried to tease back , "You are not Aryan , You are Anirudh"
Aryan : Giggles "I not Anirudh , I Aryan"
Me : "You Anirudh"
Aryan : "Ok , I Anirudh , You Taiji"

I smiled and thought , wow , Anirudh's mom is his taiji , so if he is Anirudh , I should be taiji



He feels scared of fogging sound and smoke which they do it reqularly for mosquitoes in the

apartment complex. Now he is slowly getting over his fear.

The other day he tells me after he hears the fogging sound, "Mumma I am not scared of Smoke"
Me : "Yes , I know that you are a brave boy"
Aryan : "Okay" pause for 2 seconds "Thank You !"

Wow , he realized that he was complimented!

He is not much interested in TV. TV is for Papa and rarely for Mumma and never for him. So he doesnot care whatever we watch though we are usually careful. One day we saw him glued to TV , standing very near to the box.

Husband : "Aryan .... Aryan ... Aryan" , "Aryan , come behind and see"
No response
Me : "Aryan ...what happened"
Aryan turns with a concerned sad look on his face , "Mumma sab roh kyo rahe hai ?"

He was concerned about why all the characters on the TV are crying.


One day , "Mumma , I got hurt"
Me : "Where?"
Aryan : "Thumbkin mein, Mere blood ho gaya"
There was no blood , I kissed his thumbkin and it was all right.

But where did he learn about Blood ???

Yesterday I asked him to get me water.
He comes back after 5 minutes and tells me , "Mumma no glass"
And he is holding a small bowl full of water.

It was another blessed moment for me , he got me water anyway , even if he could not find a glass :-)

Yesterday we got a star for Christmas as Aryan wanted to hang one , seeing at so many stars in the apartment.
So when we came home he told Anupam to hang the star and Anupam told him that he is busy with something and Mumma will do.

He tells his papa , "No papa , aap lagao , aap bade ho na , mumma choti hai "


Anyhow , his dad waved it off and Mumma stood on stool to hang the star, but could not reach the destination. So he runs and drags a chair that was higher than the stool and tells me to use that :-) :-)

Finally though papa hang the star over a bulb. And he was delighted to see the light through the star.

After sometime Aryan tells me ,"Mumma light band kar do , star hot ho jayega."

Now , how does he know that it will get hot from light.


Small incidents though ..make me reliaze how fast he is growing up :-)
