Things Peanut Says

Thought I'd just list a few:

* 'Mama, you cheeks soft like a bay-bee.
...and You got be-yootifool pimples'.

Yes, one of the various side effects of impending re-maternity is a return of the acne. In the form of a few bright spots on either of my cheeks - which show no hope of getting better since Peanut enjoys pawing them with her grubby paws while snuggling up to me. Oh yes, and once she broke into 'Pimples...pimples...' to the tune of 'Fimbles...Fimbles' on Ceebeebies.

* 'No, Mama, you no gorjus. Baby gorjus!'

We're kind of vain when we're dressing up in the morning for school and office. We like to look in the mirror when we're ready and admire ourselves and fight about who's more gorjus.

* ' are so very nangu!'

Err...kind of stating the obvious when we're having a bath.

* 'Daddy, aapi-aapi karo'

Said very matter-of-factly when Vijay is pretending to be helpless and trying to get her to feed him some fruit.

*' Nappy aaya...Poo-poo pehna do'

We're trying with the potty training and keep her out of her nappy most times, but she insists on wearing it for pooping. She of course means 'Poopoo aaya, nappy pehna do' but is under a bit of stress at such times so mixes it up.

* 'My baby sister in my tummy...and he gonna come ouuut!'

Umm...Yeah. I'm glad we explained the concept of your baby brother/sister Pickle just right. Well done, Vijay and Y.


  1. Hey! Congrats! When does Pickle get here?

  2. :) love the gorjus baby comment!
    Hope you get time to record most of this on video- will be v handy when turns into a teen rebel.

  3. i love gorjus. tell peanut that baby is indeed gorjus!

  4. My guess is you will have a baby girl :) CONGRATS AND GOOD LUCK!

  5. It may not be pimples... If it's Gurgaon, it's probably the mosquitos! Make sure you get a net before the baby arrives.


  6.'s always great to hear about Peanuts! And would love to read about Pickles when he/she comes!Kabir sounds so similar....toilet training phase here too as he starts a different school from June where it is mandatory to be trained...he still speaks in words like patata (paratha) and pateti(spaghetti....will miss them when he starts talk all grown up!
    All the best girl!

  7. LOL! i get that a lot.
    the bean says - Mama - go wash your face with your special soap. You have new pink pimples today. (and I dont even have the joy of a baby at the end of this - gah!)


Hi there. Go on, say it. Well? WELL?
