Too much, my daughter

Sometimes kids end up cracking the biggest of jokes.

In order to pacify my three and a half year old daughter who had been scolded by my wife early in the morning, I told her: “Rhea, don’t worry…sometimes your mother is too much.”

Pat came her reply: “Not too much. Mother is Magar-much.”

I didn’t tell her, but I agree with my daughter’s view on my wife. Now, I am convinced she is indeed my daughter.

*Some explanation due for my south Indian readers – a Magar-much is Hindi for Crocodile.
