And she is just about two now! We’ve to go a long long way, I tell myself! Whereas, the breather is she has started saying her name and she is almost correct, like 80%! Isn’t that great? I feel it is cause agree or not people do make you worry by constantly passing on comments of the same type! In this name case, people kept on saying things like she’ll never get her name right, she’ll face problems in learning her name and all that stuff! But today, my baby has almost made it 🙂
I think it is all because we have been calling her with her actual name only, no short names, no love names and no pet names! Though I do call her with different name like laddu, jalebi, chand ka tukda and the likes when I’m attacking her with motherly love, but in principle we call her with her full name, period!
Any way, I’m tired of explaining people: about the meaning, the pronunciation and the most important one: as to why did we name her this! If someone asks meaning, understandable! If someone asks the pronunciation, still understandable! But if someone comes forward *crossing the line, that is* and asks ‘why this name, could you not find anything else?’ I feel tired!!!
Tired of telling them that ‘look,this our baby, we made it and we have all rights reserved’ !!!!!
And this is just the beginning…. sigh!!!!
