V is turning three today. I really can't say who has grown a year older... I guess it's me! We did n't want to have any celebration but bought him some new clothes last week.
After the purchase, H told him, 'These are for your birthday...'
V: Where is cake?
Me and H, taken aback: What?
We: What cake do you want?
V: 'Drum' cake
We (still unable to believe what we are hearing and to make sure that we don't put any ideas into his head): Will you cut cake in school?
V: No, at home
We: Shall we call Thatha, Paati...
V: No, S, N, S, S, H,P (his friends)
We (to ourselves): Oh my God!!!
This was drafted two days before his birthday. So whether we really had a party or a drum will be posted later...including more drum-rolls!!!
