Surreal conversations

Nani on the phone: Hi Beanie, what are you doing?

Bean: Miaow. I’m licking mama.

(And she was! Sitting on my lap and licking my cheek! Why does my daughter think she’s a cat? And what happened to the elephant craze?)


The OA and the Brat watching Ratatouille: …. and so the rat is inside the boy’s cap, telling him how to cook.

Brat, disdainfully, with an American twang: That’s impossible.

(No, it’s not funny unless you hear the drawl and remember that a few months ago this child didn’t speak English and wanted to play kir-ket.)


The OA getting ready for office and the Brat walks in, looks him up and down and says – ‘Where do you think you’re going?’

OA gets on the phone and gives me a barging – ‘Now even the kids talk to me like you do!’

Β —————–

Brat to mama as she walks in from a long day of work (mind you, his father has been working from home all day) – Mama!! Where were you?

MM: Err… in office?

Brat, glaring at her: That’s not a very nice thing to do. You left me and Dada and Bean and Sati didi and C didi all alone.

MM: ?????!!!


MM, hugging bean and feeling much love: Who’sΒ Β a pretty girl?

Bean : I

MM: Who’s an angel?

Bean: I

MM: Who’s a piggy?

Bean: *firmly* You.

Reminds me of a similar post I wrote about the Brat. Except in that case the answer to the last question was: Dada.

  1. In the spirit of de-lurking, I have been following your blog for quite sometime! I landed on your blog through another weblog. Its now one of my daily reads and like many others I look forward to your updates.
    I thoroughly enjoy reading events and stories about the bedlam clan!
    Thank you for sharing!

  4. wow! Two posts in a day. That’s a treat for greedy readers like me. You do that so very rarely since you started working.Almost nevvveeeerrrr! πŸ™‚

  5. LOL… My eyes are streaming, but with tears of laughter this time. This was an amazing post – surely made my day!

    The bit about Beanie licking you like a cat was the icing on the cake, but the part about you being the ‘piggy’ was the cherry on top of it. Great! I’m drooling as well!

    My love to the kiddos!

  6. MM you’re a great source of pain to poor souls like me who don’t have any kids (yet).
    Everytime I read such a post I whine the whole day to my husband – I WANT A BABY NOW!!!

  7. πŸ™‚

    its awesome when you are seeing them everyday and yet they surpriuse you all the time! πŸ™‚

    she think she is a cat? i think its aesier being a cat than an elephant! smart beanie must have realised that! :p

    just yesterday Cubby nad me were putting the toys back in the box to make way for gaddas. there was a stuffed money that previously be hung over the window with its velcored hands with its long tail hanging. yesterday i said, Cubby woh monkey bhi rakh do! what do i hear? “Nahi. Oopa! Taangenge!” i was like WTH just happened here?! πŸ˜€

    and how dare you leave all of them alone and go to work! bad mommy i tell ya! πŸ˜›


  8. unlurking! awesome post! its just these little things by brat and bean that lift up my spirits everytime in an otherwise gloomy day πŸ™‚

  9. LOL

    I can’t decide whether the Brat is funnier or the Bean. But I think the Brat questioning his dad,β€˜Where do you think you’re going?’ takes the cake!

  10. I can see the ‘NEVERRRRRRR!’ coming to bite you in a$$. If not by the brat at least by your readers.
    Delurk? NEVERRRRRRR!
