The guy took his time to answer. I was happy to just observe thanking the sun that she didn't direct that particular question to me.Appa, why do girls not have moustaches and beards like guys? Like you?
Ah, good answer I thought (me not having a moustache I mean ;) ). Before I could finish that thought, she went again.Hmm, that's because girls' moustaches and beards go in to their head and come out from the head as long hair. See, appa doesn't have long hair whereas amma has long hair, right? And amma doesn't have moustache!
Identity crisis? I can’t believe my almost-three daughter is on the verge of an identity crisis. How is he going to handle that one?But I don’t have long hair! And I don’t have moustache too!
She seemed satisfied with that explanation and got distracted by something else. Thank god I have a husband who thinks quickly on his feet.Oh, you have to grow up tall to get moustache and long hair. You drink your milk then you shall get your long hair.
The other day it was my turn to be at the receiving end of a question. Fortunately, it turned out easy thanks to lessons in ABC.
While I was desperately trying to whack my brain to come up with a suitable, non-biological answer, the kid really really made me proud by coming up with an answer herself.Amma, where do babies come from?
Of course! Babies do come from eggs, don’t they? I happily smiled my agreement and escaped from the spot before she came up with other additions to it.From E for eggs, right?
I do love this stage though – I’ve been waiting for her questions and I just decided that I am going to document all of them here at the blog if possible :)
