All in a day's vocab - with Jay

'Amma, what fell?' - if he hears something fall.

'Jay go play alone' - if I tell him there's no one in the playground and he'll get bored.

'Anna (Sid) see waka waka, Jay see freedom' - when he wants to see K'Naan's Give me Freedom on youtube. And after his song, he will want to see waka waka also.

'Ay, why natch?' 'Ay, why push'? 'Ay, why throw ball there?' 'Ay, why amma cold (scold) me?'... as if there aren't so many unanswered questions out there already !

'Amma, elp me' - if something's stuck and he can't get to it.

'Raksha, Ratan...wear cap. Me also'

'Pease give me, last candy, ok?' (this is repeated at least ten times a day).

'Show me runnin' one video'.

There are so many more things he says, so cutely. More as and when I can remember :).

Jay amazes me every day

Jay's been listening to the alligator-monkey story for a few nights now. In which the alligator wants to eat the monkey while ferrying him across the river. And the monkey gets away by telling the silly alligator that his heart is across the river and the alligator can eat him after he gets across.

Jay is also looking at picture books these days and he saw a heart shape the other day. I told him it was a heart the day before yesterday. This morning when he turned to the page again, he identified it as a heart.

When I showed surprise that he remembered it's a heart, he says, "heart, same monkey story".
