I was taking the car out of the parking and the boy was sitting next to me. After seeing me go back and forth a couple of times, he goes “Oh, aapko toh car modni nahi aati!” 


Boy: Papa, laptop rakh do, mail ho gaya!

Husband (slightly amused): Accha, tujhe pata bhi hai main kya kaam karta hoon?

Boy (promptly): Facebook? 

(dies laughing)

Husband: 0 Boy:1 


Boy’s first parent teacher meeting happened. I asked the teacher about how he is doing. 

Teacher’s reply: “Oh Anay, he knows everything.”

(mild choking)


If you have never said “AAAAAAAAA” in front of the air cooler to hear your robotic voice, your childhood has been incomplete.


Reading Aesop’s fables on the internet so that I have new bedtime stories to narrate to the kid.


Hilarity ensued when I was humming “sone sone patole lakhaan” and the 2yo chimed in “baby doll maine sone ki?”


The boy was playing a game on the iPhone with full concentration, then suddenly paused and said “Yeh crash ho gaya!”


"All I really need to know, I learned in Kindergarten: Share everything, Play Fair, Don’t hit people.”


"Prepare the child for the path, not the path for the child."

'You know your childhood is over when you fall asleep on the couch and wake up on the couch.'


The boy can recognize an XUV, Scorpio, Innova or EcoSport but cannot tell orange from yellow.


Mom’s cellphone date was showing up as 17 July. When I asked, she said that she keeps forwarding the clock to renew her candy crush lives.


The boy pointed at my laptop and said “Mamma Game of Thrones!”. Not sure whether to be amused or worried.


The boy has caught the concept of adding ‘s’ for plural. Funnily, he applies it to hindi words also “Mere takiyas lao!”, “Itne sare sabuns!”
