From a five year old
Amma, I know you love me and I love you too. But please don't hug me when I'm sleeping. (thoongum bothu katipidicathinga) I'm uncomfortable!
After a very hectic day at office:
Amma, good that you are back. How was your day? Did you enjoy it?
During an evening walk:
Amma, when you grow old, I'll give you pink cerelac. (Brown rice, one she likes a lot and wouldn't hesitate to take a mouthful when her brother is being fed)
Because all your teeth would have fallen and you would be just like Thambi, not able to eat anything else!!!
My days are never boring :)
