Just As Sweet

Rahul: … so I told them, when my Ma comes, she’ll see to it.
Me: (slightly staggered at being called Ma and not Babu) And what is your Ma’s name?
Rahul: (after some thought) Shunanroy!
Me: And your Baba’s?
Rahul: Shoobhikniyogy!
Me: And yours?
Rahul: (after some intense cogitation) Bheblu. My name is Bheblu.
Me: And also Sharabh Niyogy, right?
Rahul: (jumping up and down) I forgot! I forgot! I forgot!

There's so much to learn and remember when you're only three and three quarters.

Really sweet! BTW, I think we may have a friend in common, do you know someone who's recently moved to Bidar?

Such a doll!

debo said...

of COURSE his name is bheblu. stop confusing him:)))

ore size ki re? as in if i go to fabindia, they have marked ages, like 3-4 etc... but i want to get something that he won't immediately grow out of... so in cms would be fabulous. am cogitating an idea...

Ro -- Done.

Spin -- Chhotto kochi bachchha, to be precise.

MRC -- If you're referring to Sonali, yes, she's an old friend of mine. Knows me as Sunny.

Dipali -- He told me he's not a doll, he's Bheblu. :)

Debo -- LOL but his name really is Sharabh Niyogy too, you know. Did you know his jethu's name is Kingshuk Sharabh Niyogy?

His size is 24 or 3-4 year category. He's roughly 3'3" high now. Does that help?

dipali said...

His name may be Bheblu, but he is still a doll:)

Sue said...

Dipali -- An extremely fidgety doll who finally admitted that he loves me. Whaddya know.

dipali said...

Yayyy! Of course he does, admittedly or not:)

MRC said...

Yes, I am. Her husband has recently joined the same sqn as mine , and I think we seem to have a few other things in common too. Which is why I "friended" her on FB recently and was pleasantly surprised to see your name on her wall. Small world!

Sue said...

Dipali -- :)

MRC -- Wow, that's quite a coincidence. Next time you meet her son please give him my salaams.

awwwwww!! sweetness all the way!! :)

i realize Cub is growing up when people actually UNDERSTAND (sometimes) when he tells his own name! to be it still sounds gibberish! hehe!

Sue said...

Abha -- Aww, this I'd love to hear. To me he's still this wild-haired baby crawling around with that fantastic smile you guys share.
