Remember that good old song from the dark ages – you know, from the movie Coolie?
Well it’s my favourite song to sing to the kids when they fall down and get hurt. Now the moment the Bean falls over she looks at me expectantly and I burst into song -Dono jawaani ki masti mein choor…accident ho gaya – and she ends the song gleefully yelling, rabba rabba, all hurt forgotten!
I remember when I was a kid my parents would invariably distract me telling me I had killed an ant and I’d crawl around looking for injured ants. This, is my updated version of the age old distratcion trick. What’s yours?
