My soon to be 4 yr old son has started noticing, understanding and applying whatever he sees on Television. A brief here about what happens after:
Madhavan dancing to a choreographer who looks very young to be a mom
I ignore ( how dare he calls me by my name)
Can’t stop my laugh and I say Hmm
Use this soap, then maybe you will dance better
I pick up a bag of Kotex when we go to the supermarket, he keeps on asking what it is until exasperated I tell him that it is something like pampers to be used by me. Next time the ad comes and he looks at it intently and I know something is coming up.
Same evening when I take some time in the bathroom, he whispers to his Dad; Amma is putting pamper; hence the time
After having chocolates he refuses to wash his hands and gargle, I yell ‘keetanu, keetanu’ and lo he is all washed up.
He comes back from school, his white shirt all soiled up with chocolate cake which he had in school, I scream ‘How am I ever going to make it white again’ He smiles and says,’ Use Vanish”.
Program-Power rangers on MBC 3
Puts on his winter cap, a cloth in the guise of a cloak and shouts Power Ranger-Jungle fury
Gattubhai on Baa Bahoo and baby
When I am at my wits end on making him eat; I say that its Gattubhai’s favourite. ( i don’t use this trick often as the novelty may go off
Movie, Ganesha Part 2
In a particular scene in the movie the trouser of the ‘hero’ is torn and Ganesha mends it up.
He is late for his school, while putting his trouser the hook comes off and I hurriedly run to get a needle and thread,
He says ‘Amma wait’ and proceeds to say- Om Gan Ganapathaye Namah. 😀 😛
