The Monster at Home!

Finally this had to come...

I was amused, feeling funny and at the same feeling guilty about myself after what happened at home last night.

Amiya had been listening to a lot of stories at school offlate as a part of her Language skills training and one of the stories include the one that has a Mermaid, a Monster and a King. (I forget the name of the story... poor me...). It was her birthday party last weekend and we had taken a lot of photographs and video which I bundled together into a Video CD by adding some background scores and stuff like that.

I was doing a play-back of this video last night while Amiya was sitting next to me on the couch. She suddenly turned around, touched my paunch and made this statement...

"You have a big kumba pappa... so you are the monster at home and I am the mermaid!!"

I was stunned for a moment by hearing that statement before breaking out into a laugh... I just couldn't control myself and I laughed my heart out... So, finally it looks like my kiddo is trying to tell me that it is time for me to check out my body & get back in shape...

Note: Kumba = Pot Belly in Malayalam
