Badge on the shoulder

Every morning, when dad gets ready to scoot to work, I demand to b picked up, hug him and let him kiss me. When letting go, I make sure he carries a badge of honor, of my, of my love by wiping my nose on his black tee shoulder 🙂

C for Choo Choo Train


One of my most favorite rhymes is Choo Choo train. Amma as my mom prefers to be called makes this sound of the train with her hand and I love it and burst to peels of laughter. I love trains, I mean in the rhymes and toys but the first time I was in train, I will never forget. It was so long and huge and made the same sound as mom. Mom loves train journeys and all the chaos that comes with them. We went from Bengaluru to Hyderabad and this was a superb journey. I was with dad near the door all the time and made friends with the TC uncle, catering staff and other passengers.

I also went on the toy train at Nehru Zoo and it was in a tiger design and was smaller version for kids and family to go around. I could see the animals along the way. A peacock was walking along with us and monkeys hooted to us. I liked the train go slowly and in a musical rhythm.

Coming back we again came in train and this time I occupied the window seat in our ac cabin and looked out till all the light went dark. So many people and so many stops and there I am sitting down with the people I love and stay silent observing as I have not seen so many people rushing around me. I fell in love with journeys and have told dad to take us to one place at least once in a year. Where are you going this summer? Tell me all about it.
