Venky – “I am growing so fast, I will become 11 years very soon.”
I – “Yes, you will.”
Venky starts counting and stops only at 40.
“I will become 40 years very soon.”
“When you will be 40 years old, you will also have a baby like Tunmun.”
I had promised myself that I will not nag my kids to become parents after being at the receiving end by all the ladies of the previous generation. But I see myself not letting a chance go already!
“Mommy, what will you name her?”
“You will name her Venky.” Secretly, I am thrilled at the prospect of him letting me name his babies
“I will name her Aditi“
“That’s a nice name.”
“Yes, like you call her Tunmun” Venky points to his baby sister.
“You mean, ghar ka naam (pet name)”?
“Yes, ghar ka naam.”
“Do you know, what is your ghar ka naam“?
“Yes, house no 47 …..” And Venky recites our full address :). That is where our discussions on his future end.
