Main smart ho raha hoon!

After we had all eaten the soup and were sitting in the bedroom each of us doing our own things. DH was reading the newspaper, Betu was reading err...flipping through some books and me just relaxing and playing the Brickbreaker game on my Blackberry.

Soon after Betu left the room and I could hear the sounds of water coming from the washbasin. I thought he must be washing his hands. Washing his hands is just an excuse he gives for playing with water. So whenever we tell him "Paani se mat khelo." (Don't play with water) he will promptly say "Main paani se nahi khel raha. Main hand wash kar raha hoon" (I'm not playing with water. I'm washing my hands). So for a minute or so I didn't say anything to him thinking let him enjoy playing with water. But when one minute extended into two, DH went out and saw he was washing his face, his hands and had even managed to put water in his hair all standing at the washbasin. So DH just wrapped up his washing-hands business and sent him back in the bedroom to me with water literally dripping out of his hair.

When I asked him "Aapne sir mein paani kyun daala?" (Why did you put water in your hair?) he matter-of-factly said "Main smart ho raha hoon!". Me and DH had such a hearty laugh hearing what he said that we didn't say anything to him but just wiped his hair dry and then me and Betu just snuggled together and watched one of his Baby Einstein DVDs. :D

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Edited: What he meant by "main smart ho raha hoon" was that he was getting all cleaned up and ready. Something which we say whenever we wash his face and comb his hair before going out - "You are looking so smart!".
