Sometimes, when we dont understand what she says, she tries to explain it to us so cutely :). It is so endearing to see her trying to explain to us what she meant !
These happened many months back.
- We were traveling in the car and Jillu had seen some colorful decorations in a store. She told me "Sar amma". I was clue less and was just staring at her trying to comprehend what she was saying. Then she tells me ( in a tone that says, "idhu kooda theryaliyaa unakku?" types )
"nachathiram amma". She had indeed exclaimed "Star !"
- In a similar fashion, when i didn't understand her saying "gift", she helped me understand by saying "Happy Birthday Ammmaa,, adhu " :).. what a co-relation ! :)
- And the other day (this was way long long back), when my dad didn't understand "chakram", she told him "kicha vechirupaale, adhu. Changu, chakkaram, andha chakram! " :)
These days, she doesn't bother to explain it to me :(. She leaves me to figure it out myself ! I think she is fed up of explaining stuff to me :).. or may be the poor girl didn't know how for such instances :)
The other day, last week or so, Jillu kept telling me
"Clip pannu ammaa". I did not understand at all. She kept repeating "Clip pannu ammaa". I was such a dud ! In spite of me sitting in front of the PC, i didn't get what she was saying! and then like a tube light, i understood it very late. She was asking me to use the mouse .:)
"Click pannu Ammaa"
And then, lately she has been calling me "Amma gundu". I was mystified ! As to where she got that word and idea from and also becoz, who likes to be called a "gundu" ? :). I kept chiding her and told her that she should n't be calling me (and anyone for that matter) that way ! Seemed to have no result and she was not at all perturbed. And then , after a week (too soon, eh ?! ) or so, suddenly i realized what she was saying ! She was just saying
"Amma gondu" as she has heard us calling her, for she has become one after i quit work :)
