Thirsty Crow

17-Jan-2016  Sunday

We were in a shopping mall where Pallavi was trying out clothes. I used the opportunity to get Snidha to practice her 'Thirsty Crow' for Talent Hunt in School, the next day. She knew most of it but would forget the line#3 'he looked for the water, but couldnt find it'.  So here it goes:

Me: Snidha, lets try the 'thirsty crow' story. tell it to me once more. I am your madam & you are Snidha
Snidha: ok
Me: Snidha, come here.. what will you do today
Snidha: M'aam, I will tell a story
Me: Ok, which story
Snidha: Thirsty Crow
Me: Ok, tell
Snidha: Once there was a crow, he was very thirsty
* then she forgets next line *
*after one/two seconds, she invents her escape route!*
Snidha: (with hand positioned as phone) hello
Me: Snidha what happened..
Snidha: Papa, wait Ojas & Radhika are calling me phone
Me: no, they are not. you have forgotten the third line.. haven't you
Snidha: No papa, they have no other work. they keep on calling me.. what can i do.

I am astonished beyond belief.



Our Maid had taken a unplanned leave and I took Snidha down in search of a temporary Maid to do the chores. On-the-way Snidha asked me why & where are we going. We didnt find anyone & while coming back:

Snidha : Papa aunty nahi mili?
Me: No
Snidha:  Papa mere paas na ek idea hai
Me: bolo
Snidha: dekho, main na jhaado laga doongi.. main to kitna achha jhaado lagati hoon, kitna gand nikalti hoon, aap pocha laga dena, daadi sheesha saaf kar dengi, Mama kapde dho dengi and daadu... daadu bartan saaf kar denge
Me: Speechless

bored in post office


Snidha with her mother & grandparents at the post office for some work. I was at her school attending PTM otherwise we would miss the slot. Pallavi was feeding her Roti and she was getting a little bored. After a while, she got fed up:

Snidha to her mother:  wo kahan hai jise main papa papa kehti hoon.. jise aap kehte ho 'yeh karo' 'wo karo'  :-)
