Varun: Amma, do you know how a sparrow walks?
Amma: Ummm… How?
Varun: (Holds a pencil between two toes and takes baby steps): Like this Ma!
The gait perfectly matching that of a sparrow picking grains from the floor.. Cuteness.. If I may say so myself:-)
Their paternal uncle, another V, is talking to Vyas on phone and is inviting them over to spend a few days with them during the summer hols.. Vyas is making plans, trying to work a schedule amidst his summer cricket camp and another one he is planning to attend with his friends..
Varun forces Vyas to hand him the phone and,
Varun: Yaaru pesaradhu (Who’s speaking?)
Uncle V: Its me da… Will you come with anna during the holidays?
Varun: Hayyoo.. No da. Tomorrow is June da. I have L.K.G. Everyday schooling da. Enakku uniform irukku (I have to wear the uniform too!). Please, ennale vara mudiyadhu (Sorry I can’t come!)
He has a formal uniform the coming academic year and is visibly excited:) The rest of the V-family has done its bit in creating all the hype around Varun becoming a big boy and entering LKG.. So, floating in cloud 9 right now… It will be a while before reality hits.. Not being able to wear his blue-jeans to school for example 😉
