‘Happy Bappy’ is Anirud’s version of Happy Birthday. He is talking about 25 single words, which he would utter only if he desires. Apart from Happy Bappy, ‘Gud Maaminng’ (Good Morning) is the other dual word he speaks.
Anirud successfully completed Grade 1 of his swimming lessons this week and has been enrolled for Grade 2. During the last session, there was an assessment in which he was made to swim without any help for 3 metres. There were few other drills too, which Anirud did with ease, but he refused to blow bubbles over water, which was one of the requirements. As he was the youngest one in the batch, the examiner just ticked him through.
These days, Anirud is mad about plugging the charger in to the mobile while speaking. Now that he has learnt how to do that, he is always on the look out for a charger whenever he sees a mobile. The worst bit about that is, even when one of us is talking, he tries to plug in the charger into the mobile.
Anirud is very adamant these days. Whenever he is refused something he wants, he rolls on the floor crying. Unless he is not well, his threats are not being heeded to.
