Jumbalika Tales

Heard that song from Takshak – Jumbalika Jumbalika… well that’s the latest music running on my mobile right now. Why? Because Chutku wants it – thats why… One evening on the way back home in the bus he got very cranky and to distract him I began to shake his hands and sing this song because these were the words that first struck as some junk words… And then I made him listen to the song on Hubby’s mobile (dont ask me how he had this song!). We got stuck… Now as the little mind fancies we need to play this song- he moves his hands rapidly and says ‘Jummmaaaaaaaa’ and I HAVE to play it no matter where we are…

He’s getting a huge grasp on picking up words now. We’ve been teaching him all our names and he very cutely slaughters it! Ask him what is Amma’s name: Thampi :-O Whaaa? Only the besotted grandparents are able to find some similarity here! Ask: What does Amma call you: Chuttttuuuuu, What does Appa call you: Gunnnnnnnnnaaaa (Guess what this is?) His Appa’s name is atleast pronounced a little better and the best of all is the way he calls his Ammamma…

And he know how to express what he wants – emphatically. The other evening after I fed him dinner I was running around getting all jobs completed while he was so sleepy he was just sitting down on themattress spread on the floor half watching the rhymes cartoon I had put. Generally I just sit down with him,play with him until he goes to sleep and then get all the work done so he kept calling me Amma Baa, Amma Baa (come). I kept saying I will come.For about a couple of mins he waited and then he called me “Thampiiiiiii”, I went to him and said “Aye, why are you calling me Thampi”.He gives me this sheepish smile and says “Thampiiii,Tham,thith” (Come,sit) and patted the mattress next to him. Just to see what he would do I went and sat where he pointed. And the next second he says “Thanthooo” and sleeps on my lap. I was so overwhelmed and happy that he is learning the right words and he wanted me to be there while he slept 😀

Numbers,rhymes and alphabets is so much fun!

Chubby cheeks, dimple chin…Amma’s pet….yech, yech,yech…. 😀 – see its so easy to get to the last…
Oot koch bunch,Ooh koch bunch, thethlathaehelaheneheoalala, Oot koch bunch – end of story!

thon,thoo,thee,thou,thai,thich,thenen,..,nine, bigthathen….

At the end of it depending on my mood Im either ROTFL or tearing my hair out of frustration trying to correct him 😛

He lines up all his chotu cars and calls me to show – Amma,thoo,theee caaaa……ddrrrrrrroooooommmmmmmm….
