*I simply skipped the less happy days to catch up with you guys
All these events happened in a span of an hour. I am paavam.
I am not supposed to lift anything heavy and also not my kid. My daughter understood it soon enough but I was the one sulking , saying nonsense stuff around the house ” How can one mother not lift her own child boohoooo” and all those drama.
On the eventful day, I really forgot. She was standing on the cot and I lifted her. I forgot. She remembered. She was very happy. She told me ” Amma ni enna thookitta ” with a wide grin (Amma you lifted me). Before you go “Awww”, listen to the full story. She went and told everyone at home.
Too many glares and stares at me. I kept saying everyone that she misunderstood , i was only hugging her and she jumped from bed on her own , just my hands were on her (nonsense!). But she kept repeating “Illa Amma enna thookitanga” (No Amma really lifted me). phew.. Had to hide in the bathroom till the storm subsided.
After 15 minutes, I am frantically searching for my watch. I misplaced it. and I know that if my mom gets to know she will start from”How forgetful am I” to “How I am causing environmental pollution”. Daughter comes and asks and I tell her (Big mistake) She goes and tells everyone. “Amma lost her watch.. All of you form teams and search”. Now my house members form teams like Theeran adhigaram onru and everyone is searching all over India. My fil is tensed. Again lot of unwanted glares and stares. I hide in my cupboard. My mom finds the watch. My kid snatches it and puts it under sofa, goes around the house shouting “watch ah kaanum watch ah kaanum”(watch is missing two times). Then crawls under the sofa and obviously finds the watch and shouts “I got it”. Now except my mom everyone stares and glares thinking how can anyone misplace a watch under a sofa. As I said I am paavam ya.
Next I go into kitchen to fill water in my bottle and the lid is missing. I never learn OK. I go and ask my daughter is she took it. Now replace the word watch in above paragraph with bottle lid. Thankfully by this time everyone gets the hang of it and what started out as Gaptun’s chatriyan(serious cop movie) finally ended as Gaptun’s Narasimha(seriously funny cop movie). What fun! I am paavam though.
