Teacher, teacher

“Where is K for Kangaroo?”
Idhar, here!”
“Very good. N for Nest?”
Pata nahin, I don’t know”
“Next to M for Mango. Show me, where is M for Mango.” “Yes, now show me N for Nest.” “Very good. Aap bahut smartie ho, you are such a smart kid!”
“Now, show me W for Watch?”
“Does that look like a watch to you? Show me W for Watch.”
“Very good. E for Elephant?”

Me teaching the alphabet to my kids? Not at all. That’s my almost five-year old with his younger brother.
How quickly they grow into their new roles!
