The other day when I picked Chhori from Daycare and told her that I am really hungry. We need to go and make something to eat.
Chhori: “You got mouse in your tummy?”
Me: “No, I am just hungry. Let’s go home and make dinner together.”
Chhori: “No mama, you have mouse in your tummy.”
She kept insisting that I have mouse in my tummy no matter what I said so I accepted it.
AS came home after work and I told him about my conversation with Chhori.
He started laughing really hard and when I asked him why, he said it was because he was teaching Chhori that.
In Nepali, if you are really hungry you say, “I am so hungry that I feel like I have mouse running in my tummy.” This refers to the stomach rumbling when we are hungry.
So, AS had been talking about that to Chhori when explaining hunger and that’s the reason she was so adamant that I had mouse in my tummy 🙂
It is so amazing that kids pick stuff up so quickly and my Chhori is growing up so fast for sure.
Have a great week everyone!
