In the last few days my kids have been spouting words of wisdom, albeit unwittingly!
Here’s the Bean’s – “I’m too small – my feet don’t reach the pedals.” This was first said when we put her on the Brat’s big cycle. For some reason she kept it up and every time we tell her to do something she is unable to, be it putting her plate in the sink (she’s too short to reach in) or pulling a sweater out of her wardrobe (too short again!) – she replies with – “But my feet don’t reach the pedals!”
The Brat’s came suddenly over the weekend in Mussoorie. He and his G’pa were scrambling up the mountainside, grandfather pushing the shrubs aside and making way for grandson, when he suddenly looked at G’pa and said “I don’t want to walk in your path. I want to make my own path.”
Right. Jeeyo mere laal!
