Heard on the streets of Delhi

… while driving the Brat and the Bean around on a hot summer afternoon

[While passing Palika Bazaar] -Bean :  “Oh look – this is where the Teletubbies’ live!

[While driving past NGMA and a good 100 mtrs away from Kota House]- Bean: “Watch out Dada – don’t bang into that little building”    (Err.. NGMA, little?)

[As the sun sets]  – Brat: Do you know why the moon doesn’t come out in the day? Because a hawk might mistake it for a piece of cheese and eat it up.  (A scientist this one might not be)

MM to Bean – My darling baby. Do you know how cute you are? Bean nods and replies confidently, “Yes, three much.”

MM to Bean – You know, cutting your nails is a pain. I can’t wait for you to grow up and take over that chore. Bean  – “I can’t grow up. You only said I have to stay small forever because I am your last baby.”

Also, a lesson learnt. Nicknames are taken seriously around here. Bean and Brat introducing themselves to a visitor – I am Thing One and she is Thing Two.

*groan* – I really should remember to stop calling them just about anything I feel like.

  1. I repeat – The Bean is a DIVA. so adorable 🙂
    The Brat is so cutely emotional and kind-hearted.
    ROFL @ thing one and thing two

  2. How cute are they!!! This must be a really great stage…when they are less trouble than when they were helpless babies, but also more fun because they can talk

  3. ROFL !!! I can’t grow up i am your last baby…awwwwwwwww…

    BTW, Wishing you and your family a very happy and joyous Diwali.
    off to Miaka like last year for the festival ?????

  4. Thing one and Thing two makes perfect sense! That’s what I called mine when they were babies…and even now, makes for easier hollering, especially in public, when I don’t want to yell their names 🙂 🙂

    As for Brat, give him a break – the kid makes *one* fanciful statement and you’re condemning him? 🙂 🙂

    M (waiting for rotten tomatoes…or laddoos :))

  6. Bean – “I can’t grow up. You only said I have to stay small forever because I am your last baby.”
