Over the last few days I’ve noticed a lot of changes in Lil p.
First, I think she understands fear now.. I’m not sure if this really is a milestone. But I wanted to record it. When she sees a disabled street beggar, or when little Krishna is surrounded by rakshas [in the TV serial].. Or any story has something scary or sad, she says .. “Mumma. My don’t like this 1.. Lil p scared.”
I have tried explaining to her not to be scared. Sometimes it works.. Sometimes it breaks my heart.. I just give her a hug n say .. Don’t worry mamma is here na.. n that seems to calm her down. Any other mother in the same boat???
And secondly, when shez in the bathtub or playing on her own, I can hear her sing some rhymes. The tune sounds familiar but the words are all wrong or that’s what I thought. This weekend I actually got to observe her more closely and I was amazed! She is actually making up her own songs!! Like we were going to her friend’s house on Friday n on the way to her house she sang
“We are going to bebo’s house, bebo’s house, bebo’s house.
We are going to bebo’s house todaaaaaay!
We will go and play with her, play with her, play with her.
We will go and play with her todayyyyyyyyy!”
I don’t remember the rhyme that the tune matched.. but it sounded so perfect!!
And yesterday when we went to forum.
“Where are we going? Forum’s play [The play area at forum. She loves it there]
Where are we going? Forum’s play
Swings n slides and come to play” .. to the tune of dora’s song !!!!!!
I asked her what are you singing n she says .. new new rhyme! Am I imagining this??
