Zini, me & life in general

Posts tagged ‘daughter’

Today morning in the bed room…

“Wake up”

“Please let me sleep”

“No, it’s time to wake up”

“Oh, but I still want to sleep”

“No, Let’s go to the drawing room”

“Please let me sleep for some more time”

“Wake up”!!

It’s Zini who said “Wake up” and it was me who wanted to sleep  (but couldn’t)!!!


Reasons for having at least 1 daughter

Disclaimer: All these are not my thoughts, some of them belong to friends, some to relatives, some i might have read somewhere. i found some of them funny and some of them cute, hence worth sharing…..

So here are some thoughts on why a mother should have at least one daughter….

1) So that you can gossip with her!!!

2) So that your hubby & in laws and in case you have a son also, get more aware about problems faced by girls…

3) You can be sure that when she has her own child, she would know what all you went through…

4) Both of you can share dresses, makeup etc…

5) You have your own in-house fashion adviser…

6) She will always be by your side and understand you…

7) Your legacy, the way you do things will continue because your daughter will do things in similar way….

Let me reiterate this, the list is for fun…This doesn’t mean that moms of boys are losing out….the little ones, irrespective of their gender, enriches our lives in many many ways….

I loved what Scribby said “a baby is a baby is a baby, of your own!”

Jee Daadi Amma!!!

We have Daadi Amma at home!!! No, i am not talking about Zini’s Daadi. I am talking about Zini herself!!!

She does so much of Daadi-giri with us, you have to see it to believe…Here are some examples of her Daadi-giri!!

Daadi’s day out

Zini and i are going out, so i put her in her seat and fasten the seat belt. then i settle in my seat and go about driving the car.

At this point Daadi amma says “Mummy, Belt Pehno!!!” (Wear the belt)

Me: Jee Daadi Amma!!!

And i dutifully wear the seat belt 🙂

The Bag & the Daadi

Zini and i are going out to the play ground. We are about to leave.

So Daadi amma says “Bag kahaan hai aapka, mummy?? Apna bag pehno!!!” (Where is your bag, wear your bag – i don’t know why she asked me to “wear” the bag, but she wanted me to carry the bag)

Me: Jee Daadi Amma!!!

Do i need to say, i carried the bag??!!

Daadi goes green

Zini is done with sleeping and wants to go “Baahar” (in drawing room). So we leave the bedroom and start for the drawing room.

Daadi Amma reminds me “Mummy, fan band karo” (Turn the fan off)

Me: Jee Daadi Amma (proudly :))

Yes, this little Daadi seems to be green in her thought 🙂

Matti Matti

Every night, hubby, Zini and I have our Matti (Masti- Mischievously fun) session, which includes giving ride to Zini on our backs, on our legs and tickling her.

To save herself from the tickling, Daadi ordered her papa “Papa, Matti matti (Masti) karo, mummy saath”!!!! (Papa do the masti with mummy!!!)

Her Papa: Jee Daadi Amma!!!

And her papa took the opportunity to tickle me 😦

Apart from all these, we have her regular Daadi-giri like khaana do, Paani do, yeh le lo, Dikhaao, clean karo and what not!!!! God save us, or not 😉

Zini’s Mini Tales

Risms inspired me to record my zini’s amusing (& sometimes annoying) antics… So here they go…………..

Tale 1:

Zini loves to add extra bindi (Anuswaar) to words. Few examples:

Normal lingo                       Zini Lingo

Kitchen                               Kinchan

Pigeon                                 Pinjan

Machhar(Mosquito)             Manchar

Button                                  Bantan

Tale 2:

Zini’s friend T has come home. (Well, actually T is a 2nd standard kid & zini has not even completed 2 years. But still they are friends!!!)

Zini (Authoritatively): Didi, Didi, T, T…….

T: Kya Hua, Zini?? (What happened, Zini)

Zini (points to her tri-cycle): Be-Be (Betho- Sit)

T (Shocked): you want me to sit on your chotu sa cycle?

Zini: haaaaaaaa (Pulling T to Cycle)

T: Okay Baba!! (Sweet T, gives in to every whim of zini)

So, now the scene is:

T is sitting on the cycle (not able to pedal because her legs are too long for the cycle.) & Zini is pushing the cycle. Both of them laughing & having fun!!!

And now every time T comes home, Zini makes her sit on the cycle & pushes it.

Tale 3:

Me: Chalo, let me cut Bhindi…

Zini (shouts excitedly): Kaam Kaam……….(Work Work….)

So Zini brings her own bowl & whatever i cut, she picks up & puts in her own bowl !!!! (still excitedly shouting Kaam Kaam)

Tale 4:

Zini says Hi to everything, mind it everyTHING.

Me: Chhotu tummy ko bhukhi lagi hai? (is small tummy hungry?)

Zini (Pulling her t-shirt a little up) : Hi Totu tummy, Bhukhi (Hungry)?!?!?

Then we go for a walk. Near the lift there are many mosquitos. So zini says “Hi Manchar, Hello”.

Once we go down, we meet a neighbour. She tries hard to talk to Zini.Says “Hi Zini”. This time Zini doesn’t even bother to look at her.

See, the Zini-losophy says, “Say Hi to things not the people”

Tale 5:

Zini has started saying “Thank you”!!! This is what happened when she tried it on her Papa.

Zini: Papa, Paai Paai (Pani, Pani)

Papa gives water to Zini.

Zini: Tantu Papa (Thank you Papa)

Papa: Huh?!??! (looks at me) what did she just say?

Me (smiling smugly): Arey Baba, it’s Thank you!!!

The Scene changes, zini wants to help me serve food (Kaam Kaam..). so she is carrying roti (1 by 1, takes longer to serve = zini is occupied for longer time), gives roti to Papa.

Zini: Papa Tantu.

Papa: Arey Beta, you don’t have to say Thank you…

Zini: Tantu Papa Tantu (getting irritated).

Papa is perplexed!!!

Me: I think she wants you to say Thank you.

Papa (realization dawning on him): Thank you Beta!!

Zini: Ok Papa!!
