A Family of Clowns .....

Well, the title of this post should come as no surprise. I mean, all along, I've always maintained that we are a family of clowns - all four of us.

More often than not, in the past, the kids used to be at the receiving end of things like us attributing them weird names and the like. Of late, however, there is a sense of parity to the whole issue - in that, the kids are learning and they are learning fast :). So many a time, we, the parents, get as good as we give. Sometimes, we do end up with more than what we'd bargained for.

But let me tell you this, there's nothing like hearing it from the horse's mouth, there is no seal more effective than the one the kids thump down on our heads. It really serves to drive the point home :).

So, since we have always known that we are clowns, Appu decided to make it "official". Using bits of scrap paper that would otherwise have ended up in the recycling bin, here's what she came up with ....





So here ......... meet The Krishnans :)


And yeah, we have absolutely no qualms at being clownish or being called clowns. We take it as a compliment :).

Like Groucho Marx once said

"A clown is like Aspirin, only he works twice as fast"
:D
