Said Puttachi...

Me: (examining a couple of greys on my head.)
She: Amma, what is that?
Me: Grey hair.
She: Why do you have grey hair?
Me: (laughing) I'm growing old!
She: Oh. But you won't die right now, will you? Die after I become very big. Okay?


She: Amma,until when can I stay with you?
Me: What?
She: Until what age can I live with you and Papa?
Me: Stay as long as you want, Puttachi.
She: Can I stay until I am fourteen years old?
Me: I recommend you stay longer, mari.. :)
She: Okay I will live with you till I am fifteen years old. Then I will go to college and get married, and when I have a baby, I will call you up and tell you whether I have got twins or not.

Too Too Cute. I am seeing how your were when you were young. She is a keen observant and picks up from your conversations. Just a guess. I wonder what happens when she starts reading your blog. I love to see PuTTachi commenting on your blog specially the old posts. Few days later, I will hear PuTTachi talking about love Vs arranged marriage:-)
