is starting off from where we left off in the first place. Jillu has always been good at it. Whenever she wakes up in the morning, she will exactly start off  on the point that was last discussed the previous night before she fell asleep.

While I have been used to this, what happened a few days back still amazed me.

I was preparing Jillu to bed and she insisted that her dad come to bed along with her. Since her dad was busy with work, we tried explaining to her but she would not hear of it. So, he came to bed as it is while holding a couple of paper in his hands with the intention of going back after 5 or 10 mins.

So the usual bed time routine started and it looked like she was nowhere near to sleep. After some 10 minutes, I told her dad to carry on with his work. Jillu immediately protested when he left and I told her that "Dad will be back after keeping back the papers. Don't worry". She asked a couple of times again before she slept and I repeated the same answer every time. After some time, she finally fell asleep.

And, the next morning, when she woke up, the first thing that she said when she saw her dad in the bed was
"Appa paper vechutu vandhutaa" (Appa has come after putting the papers back)
