Tit for Tat


These days I get back my own treatment from Jillu, a taste of my own medicine ! There's a saying in Tamil - "kai mel palan" :)

Incident #1
When I feed her, when I take the next mouthful of spoon too soon (before noticing that) she is still chewing on the last mouthful, she says 
"Wait pannu maa. Idhu mudinja apram " (Amma, wait. Let me finish this first). This is what I used to tell her to make her chew 

Incident #2 
One day, couple of weeks back, I had come home soon from work and was having my evening coffee. I had completed it and asked Jillu to keep the glass back in the kitchen. She normally obliges, but that day, she took the glass and as she was about to take it back to the kitchen, she noticed the last final remnants (foam/bubbles/froth- what is called as "nurai" in tamil and which I hate ) at the bottom of the glass. 
She gave it back to me and said, "Innum irukku paaru" (See, there is still some left)
and I replied "Avlodhaan daa. Acchu. Nee vechuru" (Thats it. Over. You go and keep it in the kitchen")
and then she says "Naa chaapadatummaa?? " (Shall I have it then ?). Saying that she takes the glass to her lips all the while watching me over the rim of the glass.
I stare at her as the realization dawns. !!! I am getting a taste of my own medicine 'coz that's what we do when she fusses for eating. We pretend to eat it ourselves or give it to some one else if she does not eat and it usually works too!
