Toddler Thursdays 1

My friend R who blogs at Quintessentially Yours recently started a weekly segment called Toddler Thursdays. Everyday Thursday she posts something about her toddler. I love that segment and since I have a toddler I am planning to do the same here. So starting from today I will try to post something about my toddler every Thursday.  

My younger sister got married recently. I went along with Ritu a month before her wedding and Arun joined later. We used to take Ritu with us for all the wedding shopping. We did our gold shopping at Bhima, which is a very well known jewelery shop in Kerala.

As complimentary gifts for their customers, they give small bags and pouches with this logo of the boy printed on them. Ritu had one of these bags exclusively for her. She used to take this bag while going to temple with the coins everyone gives her. So I had showed her this logo and told her that this boy's name is 'bhimakuttan'. So from then on whenever she sees the logo in the advertisement boards or other complimentary gifts, she used to say 'bhimakuttan!'. After coming back to US, we forgot all about it as there were no more sightings of the logo.

These days its cold here and we wear jackets to office. Ritu has this habit of removing our jackets as soon as we reach home from office. She loves to unzip our jacket and remove it for us. One day Arun had worn a pull over to office. When we reached home for lunch she came running as usual and wanted to remove Arun's pull over. Arun lifted his arms up so she could remove it. After pulling it off and seeing Arun with his arms up, Ritu promptly said, "Bhimakuttan!". It took us a few seconds to get what she meant. But then we started laughing and she joined in too.
