I know kids could start asserting their independence early, but I did not expect it to be this early.
My daughter Saathvika is 17 months old and today she over ruled my mom and chose her own meal at lunch time & dinner and this is how it happened
After she wakes up in the afternoon:
My Mom : Thachi mammam saapidalaamaa?
Jillu : Naana...Pal
My Mom : Thachi mammam saapidalaam
Jillu : Thachi mammam Naana...Pal...
and of course she had milk then
My Mom : Kanji saapidalaamaa?
Jillu : Kanji Naana
My Mom : Appo mammam saapidalaama?
Jillu : Thachi mammam
and of course she ate curd rice for dinner
