Four, and he melts my heart.

I was dropping Ri to school in a cycle rickshaw the other day and then – this conversation:

Ri: Mama, will you stay in my house.

Mama: Which house, Ri?

Ri: When I grow big and then when you grow small and I have a house, will you stay in my house?

Mama: Yes, I will stay in your house.

Ri: I will love you loads when you stay in my house.

Melts my heart.


When I heard the news of my aunt passing away, I started crying in the bedroom and that is when Ri walked in. He stared at me for a while and then – this conversation:

Ri: Mama, are you crying?

I nodded my head.

Ri: Mama, why are you crying?

Mama: I am crying because I am sad about something.

Ri:  (wiping my tears with his little hands, and holding my hand) Mama, cholo, let’s play with my train set. You will feel fine then.

Melts my heart


You are four years today, little one. You are really small and yet you can comfort me like no one can with conversations as these.

Yes, playing with the train set did make me feel better.

Yes, I really want you to grow big and have a lovely house of your own.

And no, I will not stay with you in that house because when you move out to your own house, I plan to turn your room into a sewing studio for myself. :| :D

Love you a lot and love you forever, baby. A very happy birthday to you. Just stay happy. Always. 


  1. Such lovely words. Guess a mother always gets a lion's share of a child's love :-(

  2. Love him, loved the words. And completely endorse the sewing studio project. I am planning a study.

  3. Happy birthday wishes to the wonder child! I love him.

  4. This is the kind of posts where you type "awwwwwww". I am surprised no one has done that as of now.

  5. I know how it feels with my ill girl turning 4 next month...lots of love to handsome boy

  6. Loved it as always .... the one below still stays on my desktop and always makes me smile :)

    Mama: Aur bata, Ri, kya chal raha hai?

    Ri: Pata hai oi goodnight theke dhua aata hai tarpor mosha ko dhum dhum more deta hai tarpor janla theke light dhukta hai ar fan er upore padta hai tarpor boom boom kore bidyum ata hai ar mama pore jata hai

    1. That is so sweet of you, Anuradha. Thank you so much. :)

  7. Awww!!! So cute. Stay blessed, always.

  8. Why? Just WHY do they grow up so fast? :/
    Lots of love for Rihu Babu and his Mumma and Baba, too!
