The other day, Hubby was telling Lil P the story of Rama & Sita and story of the golden deer Maricha … so when Lakhsmana goes to find Rama, hubby very dramatically mentioned that laxmana drew 3 lines and asked Sita to never cross it.. and that line was called Laxman Rekha to keep all demons away. .Lil P immediately said.. ahhh like how ajji in kumta (hubby’s mom) draws the laxman rekha around all food to keep cockroaches away.. LOL. The things this girl co-relates!
After the story, Lil p gives her pappa 5 kissies and they have a nosey fight..rub noses and whoever plants a kiss first wins.. after all the endless good nights, i love u mumma and i love u pappa .. she insists that he switch off all the lights. As soon as he goes to the living room, she’ll call him again.. and ask for a glass of water. Every day! If he tries to be smart and gets a glass before she sleeps.. she’ll come up with some excuse and makes him go get a fresh glass of water.. Really daughters have their dad nicely wrapped around their fingers.
I love watching such dad n daughter moments.. makes me love hubby more than ever. I hope Lil P remembers it too even when shez all grown up..
Edited to add a few more of her jems..
To my dad when he made finger chips for her ” Ajoba, you are the best cooker in the whole wide world”
To me – “Mummy I love you as high as from the floor to the space.. and as wide from India to America “
On why we have proxy Santa Claus in India – “Because Santa is busy in America.. as they only have Christmas festival.. In India we have soooo many – Diwali dusera, holi, so my teachers dresses as Santa for him”
to every Tom Dick n harry walking on the road, when we bought a English to Kannada CD for her – “Now I know Kannada. I have Kannada CD”
“I want it NOW NOW NOWWWWWWWWWWW!”
