I like most moms, have this urge to correct my baby every time she errs. . .
Nevertheless, there are these times when I want her to repeat some of her mistakes over and over again. . like. .
when she wants me to add Simo none to a dish. . or when she wants a geein galar pen. . or when she brings me her shoe when I'm trying to shoo away a massito (a little loudly to add drama). . or when she stubbornly demands to watch Chottanaem (Oh yes. . my daughter is no exception. . she adores that brat Chotta Bheem. .). .or points out Doah on a daycare compound wall. . and the times she so sweetly asks for her waatte poatte . .
I make her say it so many times a day. .and strangely. .I glow with pride every time she makes those mistakes(can you believe that?!). Speak of the many joys of parenting a toddler. .
As a kid, I was taught a poetry that went on like this. . "only the people who haven't enjoyed the lisping prattle of their kids, believe that the flute and harp sound sweet". . I even won a prize for reciting it. . But today, 25 years later. . I have understood the true meaning of the lines. .
P.S : Apart from that I want her to be little Ms. Perfect. . (no arguments there. . ;-) )
