Daughter is home for Dushshera Holidays. She wants to know, if we have started feeling any symptoms of the Empty Nest Syndrome yet… (Not really, but that will have to be another post!)
I love lazy Sundays like today, and the racket is a change.
So I am not demanding that the music volume be brought down. The kids are watching All the single ladies (Beyonce) on Video Music Awards, on Vh1.
I know we will have only the sounds of ESPN and Son’s guitar playing again soon.
But there were other noises in the house today.
Of Daughter demanding to know how many aloo paranthas Son had, because only palak-paranthas were left while she waited for pickle (to be home delivered by the local grocery-wala), and then after some negotiations, she emerged triumphantly in front of the TV with the rationed, carbohydrates packed aloo paranthas on her plate.
When my mom saw her like this in Delhi she declared that she had ‘gone on my husband’s side’! ;)
(He he she has forgotten my siblings’ who-ate-more-mangoes fights every summer.)
