Bubble Gum, Bubble Gum !!!

Bubble Gum Bubble Gum – is the chant I’ve been hearing a lot over the past few weeks.

Then this changed to “I want Bubble Gum”.

Poor Abhay !! Needless to say, his Mommy can be quite dense when the situation so requires.

So yesterday, when the consistently stubborn (in this case) mommy was busy with something else, Abhay stuck a balloon in his mouth and went about looking for Mommy. Find mommy he did, of course and went on to tell her “That’s a bubble gum. Abhay has bubble gum in the mouth”.

Mommy did feign surprise at having been outwitted but did not budge a millimeter as far as the bubble gum embargo business was concerned.

And much to Abhay’s consternation and dismay, Mommy’s message was quite clear

“I hear you Abhay. I hear you loud and clear. And you looked pretty cute with that balloon stuck in your mouth. All the same, my dear, I’m not about to toe your line on this one – not just yet !!”



P.S : this picture is courtesy “that something” mommy happened to be doing when Abhay came looking for her with the balloon in his mouth. Mommy happened to be going thru the pictures in the digital camera cos she had to print some pics out.

And she ended up snapping a Candid Picture !!!
