Achulde has been having the time of his life, hes not been going to the day care for the last two weeks. The first week, his day care had closed for Onam vacation. And the next week, his cousins had come visiting from Mumbai and were here for a week. Though he was not exactly on friendly terms with his cousins, especially the younger one Kavya(whom he calls Kaayi)- who is his age(jus 6 months elder to him). They were always fighting, pulling , pushing, crying and keeping guard on each other!!! And the moment one of them does something, the other one would sound the alarm(Amma,” Kaayi,Kaayi, kaayi”) or Appacha “ Achu,Achu,Achu”!!!(Kaavu and Devu calls me Appacha , for Appachi!!!) The moment one takes a toy, the other one would jump upon her/him shouting “ Achu-lde “ or “Ente”. Now Achulde has given up his ™ word “ Achu-lde “ and has started using Kaayi’s “ Ente”, only that he pronounces it as “ Nnnte”.
After the girls left, he's quite bored with no one to fight with, around. So he has chosen lil Mommolde. Anything that Mommolde picks up for playing is “ Achu-lde” and he pounces on Mommolde shouting “ Achu-lde” and then stops mid-way and nods his head--correcting himself and shouts “NNNnnte”!!!
I'm sure, I am gonna miss his "Achulde" for sure!!!
