Anushka never ceases to amaze me- just like most kids her age. . .

The Old and The New( not young)
Anushka- "Situ paati( my grandma) is very old... Paati( my maa) is not so old.... You and I we are new na?"
Navy- "What about me?"
Anushka- " you are very old appa"
Navy still not giving up- " Between A thaathu (my dad) and me?
Anushka delighted at her own joke- " A thaathu is not so old, you are VERRRRY old pa"

All Girls school- what deprivation!!
She wanted to know all my friends' names from my school days. I rattled them off.
She asked" No boys' friends amma? Why?"
"Well, thaatha paati put me in girls' schools Anushka"

A Marriage proposal- progressiveness incarnate
In her sweetest most beseeching tone" Amma please marry me"
Me- "Anush I love you sweety but Appa and I are already married na?"
Anush- "It is okay amma, you can again marry me."

All girls school!!- definitely a deprivation!! I can't imagine why anyone should ever go to one!

My Anan wants to marry her Daddy when she grows up, so she can stay at home and not have to go away with some other boy. And I can also stay at home and take care of everyone!! Hmmmm!
