His love for rainbows started about 7-8 months ago and it still contniues. In almost all the drawings he will draw a rainbow. If you remember, he drew that even in the birthday card he drew for me 2 months ago.

Here are the three paintings he did today and all of them have different kinds of rainbows :)

Finger painting

This is an interesting one..he first dabbed some paints on the sheet and then folded it thrice so that the paints would merge with each other.

This one he painted using an icecream stick

I loved all of these Betu! You are 'amazing'! :)

So many questions...

These days Betu's questions either leave me speechless or laughing. I guess the latter category can also be clubbed with the 'speechless' category since I am laughing so hard that I cannot say a word :)

I will tell you some incidents and am sure you would feel the same.

Incident 1
He is talking to his Dadi over the phone and then out of the blue asks "Aapki aur Dadu ki shaadi kab hogi?" (When will you and Dadu get married?)

While his Dadi was still struggling to find an appropriate response, I explained to him that their marriage had taken place many years ago. while my mind was busy thinking where did this thought come into his mind.

But that was not it. So now that he knew that Dadi-Dadu are married, he further asked his Dadi "Aapke babies kab honge?" (When will you have your babies?)

This left me literally rolling on the floor laughing while still thinking what is triggering all these questions in his mind.

So once I was able to control my laughter I told him that Papa, Chachu and Bua were Dadi's babies but now they are grown ups.

Incident 2
Long back Betu was curious about how babies are born. So I had told him in simple words that its an activity that papa-mumma have to do.

And these days every now and then he asks me when are we going to do the baby making activity :P

It never ceases to amaze me... kids don't need any introduction with other kids to play with them. They don't need to know the name or for that matter anything at all before they get pally with them. Even when they are meeting with them for the first time.

Names, age, backgrounds, caste, creed - it doesn't matter to them.

We adults definitely need to learn some lessons from our children :)

All those who agree say 'Aye!!'
