Venky is jumping on the dining table
I – “Venky, neeche utro! Gir jaoge.” (Venky, climb down! You’ll fall)
Venky keeps jumping
Vibhu – “Venky, gir jaoge beta” (Venky, you’ll fall son)
Venky gets more excited and keeps jumping
FIL – ” Venky is a bad boy. Gir jaoge, neeche utro”
MIL says something too (to the same effect). Venky ignores everyone, gets excited at the attention and keeps jumping. Finally, after several threats, reprimands and requests we have to force him down from the dining table.
Venky gets upset with us for spoiling his fun and sits in my lap sucking his thumb.
I – “Vibhu, please put the blinds down.”
These blinds are accessible only from the dining table. So, Vibhu climbs the table to pull the blinds down.
Venky – “Papaaaaaa. NEECHE UTRO. GIR JAAOGE.”
😀 😀 😀
Lately, we’ve had quite a few of those coming our way!
