Broken heart!!!

One day last week, I came home in the evening to find Jillu being non cooperative and generally creating problems for her grand ma by not eating. So fundoo, creative and innovative mama that I am, I pretended to cry by making wailing noise and squeezing my eyes and sobbed saying "Jillu saapida maatengaraa..mmmmm..hooooooooommmm....sob..sob..."(Jillu is not eating !!!)

and you know what? she said
"Azhaadhe amma.. naan samathaa irukken" (Dont cry mom. I will be a good girl). Wow !!! I was so touched and ecstatic that my girl was reacting in such a wonderful and caring manner. What more could I want?

My mom said  "Then come and have a mouthful and amma will not cry"

Jillu obliged. And I was so happy.

And then again the whole thing was repeated for the next mouthful. 
After some time, when I judged that the proceedings were okay and did not need my intervention, I was diverted and on to something else. Then guess what happened?
After a couple of mouthfuls, Jillu came to me and said
"Azhu maa, Azhu" (Cry mom !!!)
and there came my wonderful world crashing down to smithereens!

    @AJCL : chotu is much smarter, he is not taken in by your actions :)

    :) i know :) bet my kids are going to be the most spoilt ones :D

  8. @gils : the trick is not to spoil them. Enjoy all you can but never ever spoil them. I have seen too many instances of spoilt kids and the result is not good, mind you. Did i take you too seriously? Ok, now enuf of lecture. let me stop. :)
