Ankita again

The other day, I heard dad bought some gas balloons for Ankita (my niece). She couldn’t hold them for long and let them off. She eyed them piquing her childish curiosity till they vanished from her sight and went to her mom with utmost glee saying that she has sent them to me and asked her to call me up to find out if they have reached Bangore (She cannot pronounce Bangalore yet) and if I have received those balloons :-)

She is turning 3 very soon.

She is toilet trained but it seems, she peed on the bed one day and woke up to a pool around her. She smiled suddenly realizing what has happened and then started kissing my sis all over saying, ”Aunty, I love you very much.”

Heard she has started attending school (baby class) and loves wearing the uniform so much that they have to coax her to remove her small bag or the uniform. Sis-in-law is the disciplinarian so, she goes to my mom for all her antics. She made my mom sit and say umm umm after every line that she utters. Mom thought it was over after she uttered umm umm to every line of Ding Dong Bell and was about to leave the room when Ankita asked her to change roles. Mom had to sing Ding Dong Bell and she sat on the bed, legs crossed and said umm umm.
