Tv humor

Hubby and i were watching Obama speech in Indian parliament on YouTube - an absolute luxury in the current context (not Obama, or his speech or YouTube or the parliament) just the fact that we could sit together to follow some current affairs, outside of our household.

The apple of our eye was right there, trying to make sense and blend in to the 'group,'.

'who's he?' she asked
'obama' hubby's answer
Why is he talking alone and no one else is'
'he's giving a speech, and other people are listening to his speech' I chipped in
'who are they?' she asked pointing at the men in crisp white (about 6) standing behind Obama
'they are the body guards' hubby
'why are they standing?' TV
B coz 'they are the body guards' hubby
'yes, but why are they standing?' TV
The lil luxuries of life, why re they so short-lived? I m thinking
Tv must have repeated her question a couple of times, but both hubby and I must ve given up on our abilities to answer her why why's
'why why kay? Tyana basayala jaga nasel mhanun,' she reasoned herself and had both of us wow her over mr.Obama
Literally translated from Marathi it means, 'why go why why, they might not have found a place to sit':)

Onto the 'band'wagon, literally

A blogpost in a really longtime. Still settling in new place, new routines. Tv not yet in school and thus in my care, totally and me, in hers. She starts her Montessori next week. Should find more time to post a lot of interesting developments over her last few months.

For now, a very overwhelming,, repetitive and completely dominating her mind currently is her new year resolution (yes she has one, not me yet) - getting to the ,green band, at luna park. That's getting to 110 cm height and ride on more rides:-)

So much is she on the band trail that she would often categorize people into these bands
'only yellow band people can drink that (coke)'
'red band kids are allowed to cry in school, but not green band'
'I'll be able to carry my my own bag into the flight when I'm green band'

These are just a few specimens of the kind of dialogue we have in house these days - thru the days for over last 3 months.

The obsession with the band aside, but my lil girl has surely learnt the concept of making resolutions, quantifying them and working toward achieving them. I sincerely hope she gets close to meeting her 2011 resolution
