I pointed to a symbol on the street and said to the 2yo “Look, an arrow”. He says “No mama, it’s Back (button)”

This smile. 

This smile. 


As I was leaving for work today, the boy came running to the door and handed me my blue headband saying “Mama, yeh pehen ke jaao”.

I just wanted to cuddle him forever.


 In another news, it is NOT advisable to leave your beetroot soup unattended with your 2 year old.

Two girls asked me to click their photo at the flower show. Sure I did, only to hear them say “Yaar beech mein hi nahi li” while walking away.
