After much persuasion, my daughter Eva has started calling me mumma from today. Now her every sentence addressed to me has this beautiful word attached to it which I was longing to hear since she started speaking. So it is, ‘Mumma, where are you?’, ‘Mumma, what are you doing?’ or ‘Mumma, shall we go to toy room?’
Every day is full of surprises and I just couldn’t resist writing this blog in the middle of an exciting cricket match. I just don’t know where she catches words from because her vocabulary is increasing by leaps and bounds even though she still can’t read. Yesterday, I got a pack of story books for her and she started flipping through them. By just watching the pictures, she started telling me the story on her own. It was Goldilocks and the Three Bears and I will never forget that.
