Vyas, leaning back on the sofa with legs curled up, left elbow rested on the sofa, head inclined at an awkward angle supported by his left palm . A notebook and pencil in the right hand wrongly held and scribbling away his homework.
Me: Vyas, sit properly and write.
Me: Am sure you heard me. Keep the notebook on a flat surface and write! (and I get back to my reading.)
Vyas: (after a pause of 2 minutes): Amma, its more difficult this way. Am not able to write.
When I look up, I see the notebook on the floor, he is still seated on the sofa, bending down and fakes an attempt to write!!
A nice kick on his small butt is what he needed:)
The fellow was yapping away to glory and I literally had pain in my ears!
Me: Now, shut up and eat!!
Vyas: No ma. Am hungry!
Me: Eat! That is what I’ve been saying!
Vyas: How can I if I shut up?
Brilliant! Original thought eh?
It was the day after he submitted the bird mobile in school:
Vyas: Ma.. you know what?
Vyas: The bird mobile…
Me: What happened? Damaged or something?
Vyas: Ma’am hung it beside Sanjana’s. Tchhh
Me: Okay, so what?
Vyas: There was a breeze and both of ours is now in a tangle.
Me: Oh! You must carefully remove the tangles then…
Vyas: Its not that. A says, my birds and her birds are kissing. I don’t want them to!!
Me: Lol!! Why?
Vyas: I don’t like her.
Next time, put yours next to the ones done by girls whom you like. But make sure she is a cutie-pie!!!
