A few days back Chirpy pointed at the tiny dot at my forehead and gestured in a question.I told her it is used to adorn forehead and is called as Bindi..

A day before I was applying nail color. Chirpy pointing to the nail color bottle says “Binni”. I tell her no it is a nail polish. She insisted “binni”. This continued for a while, on seeing that her Aai is not getting her point, she pointed her finger to her forehead and said “binni” then pointed her finger to her nails and said “binni”.

My reaction? !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


We talk to Chirpy in 3 languages-Marathi,Hindi and English. Now for the little while pearlies she has been hearing the words Daat from her Daddy and Teeth from her Aai.

Today, at the cuddly morning time, we three were playing. I generally asked her pointing to my eyes, nose, ears,hair…as in what are these. Then me and Husby pointed to the teeth at the same time…

Chirpy for a moment was silent. Looked at both of us and then said Daat Teeth !!!!!

    1. yeah 3 languages 🙂 and so far “touch wood” she is not mixing up languages, just that both of us questioned her at the same, hence this answer 🙂 let’s see what happens going forward on the multilingual front 🙂

    1. It is not confusion, it is putting both lingos together to answer both of us at the same time 🙂 children at the age till 5 can learn as many languages as many you teach them..

    1. no with the logic she gave she meant you adorn your forehead and call it bindi so you are adorning your toe nails hence it should also be called as bindi and not nail color 😛

  1. 🙂 Seeeeeeeeeeeeeee seeekho.. the little one telling you something its BINNI or did she mean the color of both were same .. 🙂

    three languages , chalo theek I will have to teach her Punjabi ha ha ha 🙂 and then Mix them all together one word each …….. wonderfulllllllllll

  2. hehehehehehehe daat teeth was so hilarious! 🙂
    And oshoooo so cute at that “binni” 🙂 It is such a joy to hear this lil ones speak – love the baby talk!

    Scribby so so good to read you !

  3. Yay yay! Welcome into my world. My daughter is stealing away all my “puttus” and “polish” !!! But it’s cute, isn’t it? I indulge her all the time! 🙂

  4. Glad you are teaching her all three languages right from the start! We made the mistake of not doing so, so it’s now a struggle….hopefully, our boys will get it!

C'mon,out with it,right here :)
