Memoirs of my mommyhood


An obidient kid

is the one who stops bouncing the ball off the neighbor’s car when told “Uncle gussa karenge”.
A smart kid is the one who then walks off to his mom’s car and starts bouncing the ball off it.

That’s a 2.5 year old outsmarting me. Folks, this blog is on a 2 week break as we are on vacation. But before I leave, I have to complete this tag by Trish. You know what, this is the first time someone has really tagged me and am so excited about doing it. Here I go …

The first alphabet of my son’s name is ‘V’ – God! this is going to be a tough one

1. What is your(child’s) name: Venkatesh
2. A four Letter Word: Very  (this is all I could think of)
3. A boy’s Name: Varun

6. A color: Violet
7. Something you wear: Vest
8. A food: Veg Noodles (or any thing veg :p)
9. Something found in the bathroom: Vivel soap. (Really can’t think of a common noun)

Quote Unquote

I am pretending to cry while playing with Venky. Venky hugs me and says
“Mommy mat ro. Main hoon na!”

Venky is jumping on Vibhu’s belly.
Vibhu – “SSsss. Bachaooooo.”

Venky keeps jumping
Vibhu – “Ssssss. Pleeease stop him. I am going to break into two.”

Venky continues.
Vibhu – “Sssss. Tumko ek pati chahiye ya do?”
Venky – “Mujhe Gan-pati chahiye!”

Venky is upset with Vibhu and is shouting at him
Venky – “Tumko bahar bhi jaane nahi milega. Park bhi jaane nahi milega. Sand mein khelne bhi nahi milega. Mommy se pyar bhi karne nahi milega!”


I – “Venky, I am going to get ready. You wait here.”
Venky – “Lipstick lagane ja rahi ho?”
