HOWZAT!!!!

The first day of school went off smoothly...new textbooks, new notebooks, new timetables...everything seems exciting and interesting, and its worth waiting till evening just to hear about who sat with whom and how many new children were there this time...

So the evening saw each child sharing some tidbit, the 11 yrold has a cricket tournament coming up where he is playing in 6 matches and of course very thrilled about it...while i see myself the only candidate for grabbing the hat of the cricket mum, soccer mum and keeping 6 yrold occupied well enough mum during the next 10 days. I'm also currently feeling very pleased with myself for having got through 2 weeks of holidays in one piece and more importantly having had fun all the way.

and then the 11 yrold says: 'amma, the princi is our english teacher'

me(pleasantly surprised) : 'Really? that's good news, she's an excellent english teacher"

11 yrold(contemplative): 'you know, she reminds me of you'

me(considerably elated and resembling a balloon, so puffed up with pride was I) trying to be nonchalant: "Why?"

11yrold : 'I can't read her handwriting on the board'

Tooooosh, that was the fastest a balloon ever deflated into oblivion!

And as you can see, the 11 yrold is good in delivering a yorker! (or whatever you call it)

Kids can be good critics at times, they always keep us on toes

Joy said...

That's a bouncer :) Smart kid... I wish I could have seen you at that moment :) :)

ugich konitari said...

Smart little fellow.And certainly a yorker... But what amazes me is how times have changed. Kids are so free with their parents. In my time, I probably had opinions about my teachers handwriting as well as my mothers, but it was never ever enunciated...

But seriously, I have a suggestion. Have you had your son undergo an eye checkup? From my own childrens' experience I can tell you, that when they cannot makeout whats written on the blackboard, thats the time to check it out. ...

Suma said...

Pesto sauce::
that's right..they take potshots at us and know when to do it too...


Joy::
:))
actually i couldn't help laughing and replying that he's had enough practice reading my handwriting, it shouldn't be too difficult to read hers...

ugich...
yes times have changed, more importantly i've changed...besides he knows when to take his potshots and has my sense of humor, so i couldn't possibly take offence...

and thanks for that very valid suggestion...we know a great eye surgeon, who in his free hours masquerades as our bro-in-law :))..so no problem there, thankfully.

onlooker said...

enjoyed the part about (you) sharing the child's entire day, not wanting to miss a single thing! THAT's exciting, no matter what the age is...i guess!

Solilo said...

Hopped over from somewhere and laughed out loud at you getting stumped.

Kids can be so brutally honest. I have my own experiences :))

Keshi said...

Kids r always honest. And thats a good thing :)

LOL Suma!

Keshi.
