Two minutes more…


When I was younger…I mean, way younger..like when I was a child, my Mum used to wake me up every morning for school. And my standard response would be ‘Five minutes more’. After the allotted Five Minutes, I would plead forΒ ‘Just Two minutes more..’. Sometimes she used to oblige, but considering the fact that there were two of us lazy girls around to pack to school, you could say, she was not very happy about it!

Fast-forward two and a half decades, to this weekend.

He: Wayke up, its morning!

Me: Mmmmm…(rolling under the duvet to hide)

He: Look! Its morning! Wakey..wakey!

Me: Oh please…I’m sleepy.

He: Tries pulling my duvet off, and nuzzling his nose into my ear.

Me: Hey! Hmm… πŸ™‚Β (enjoying the warmth!)…let’s sleep a little longer, please!

He: No way! Time to go!

Me: (Half the sleep has vanished by now πŸ™„ wondering where we HAVE to GO on a cold Sunday morning): Where the hellΒ do we have to go?

He: Its time to play! Look, there’s the clay and building blocks!

Me: Awww…Ok fine… (He flashes a huge grin πŸ™‚ )… Just Two Minutes More…. 😯

He: Sigh! (Thinks: Such a lazy Amma I have! 😦  )

    Like yesterday they both trooped together and asked me ” Why havent you done our nails yet ? It has been two -three days since u started telling ” ufff ! It is tough to find reasonable excuses and to project that Momy dear is not lazy and forgetful. !!!

    Hugs!!!
