The other day Shonapa and I had our usual fight "you did not do this, you come late from office blah blah". you get the drift right? No, we don't fight a lot and our fights are usually silly. So we did have one such fight and I went off to sleep after being vocal(read: scream) about my anger.
Kulli wanted me to play with her and I was in mood to do so. This is how our conversation went:
Kulli: Amma, what happened Amma?
Amma: Appa is useless Adi (this is where you guys should not advice me on how you should not bias the kids, I can be very mean when I am angry.)
Kulli: Thinks for a while, its ok Amma come lets play (ahh she has her priorities set ..)
Amma: No Kulli, I am upset I dont want to play
Kulli: What happened Amma?
Amma: I told you Appa does not help Amma and Kulli (see how I am making her a partner :))
Kulli: Thinks again and runs to Shonapa and yells Appa!
Appa: Come Kulli leave Amma alone, I'll play with you (good try Shonapa)
Kulli: No Appa! and she yells on top of her voice "Why are you not helping us Appa?"
I start laughing loud after this and all 3 of us end up playing with Kulli until midnight
See I have my own little mediator and a soldier.
Do you have one too?
