M stepping out to buy milk from nearby grocery shop. Adi at living room busy coloring. Over to the dialogue
Adi: Appa Appa stop stop where are you going?
M: to buy milk
Adi: to the nearby grocery shop?
Adi: I don’t want chocolate appa.
Adi: I mean the chocolate chip cookie that will be on the row next to the billing section. Just check if it is there but don’t buy okay? because I don’t like chocolate these days.
Obviously M returned home with the choco cookie. Over to Adi’s reaction
Adi: Amma Amma enga irukeenga? parunga indha appa enna panni irukangannu. Naan vena vena-nnu sonnaen aana appa choco chip cookie vangittu vandhu irukanga. idha appa-vai enna pannaradhu? (Man you should have seen her facial gestures. This whole statement was delivered by looking at the mirror)
Eng: Amma Amma where are you? see what this appa had done. Inspite of me saying no he had bought the cookie. what do we do now?
Amma: (with no reaction on face). Keep it along with other snacks. I will eat them
Adi: Ok amma that’s better
After one hour
Adi: Amma How can you eat the full pack? You can may be share some with me. Only if you can’t eat the full pack. You know it will be too much to eat one full pack. You might even get tummy ache.
Amma: It is okay. I can store and eat on some other day.
Adi leaves the room with no response
Adi: You know amma chocolate is not a healthy food. It is junk. It is not good for us. I am not going to eat them anymore.
Amma: That’s good to hear honey. I will be happy if you stick on to it for a while.
Next day morning (while brushing)
Adi: Amma it was only yesterday that I didn’t want to eat choco cookies. I think I can eat them today. So, better give me 4 cookies for today evening’s snack okay? Remember it is not for you. I can finish the full pack as 4 per day. Appa bought it only for me.
May be she would have dreamed about a monster (who else can it be – me and me alone) eating full pack of choco cookie at one stretch. She reserved the cookies as first thing next day morning.
what is she trying to do here? I am clueless. Experts please enlighten me with your $0.02.
> what is she trying to do here?
What do these kids try to do in these situations? Simple. Make us all look like idiots. 🙂
agreed. we have to learn the negotiation skills from them…
Ha ha 🙂
I second chakra.At the end we would feel like fools.
vera vazhi? as the parents of this gene we have to admit this 😦
she was just trying to put a smile on your face 😛
Isn’t there any other way? I would have smiled if she acted this way for a cuppa milk or veggies not for a choco cookie… 😦
Very funny. I think it is called the Art of Manipulation. Yogachakra.
indeed.. I am going crazy in dealing with her…
