Bad news and good news

Filed under: All in the Family,Around children — pramath @ 4:58 AM

I had a long day. The young one, who is nine, came to me and with a VERY serious face started:

“Papa, I have a good news and a bad news. Which one do you want me to start with?”

Given my mood, I said: “Start with the bad news first.”

“The bad news is, there is no good news and the good news is that there is no bad news!!!”

The father of the neo-teen confessed in turn that he used to believe that while the sun rose from the East,  the moon rose from the West. It sounded so fair and balanced till one full moon evening he actually saw the moon rising.

The neo-teen confessed yesterday:
“Before I studied about magnetism, I used to think magnets must be related to glue. The denser the glue, the stronger the magnet. I got suspicious when my glue theory could not explain the suction. “

Careers for eight year olds

“My friend wanted to become an ornithologist last year.” Said the younger one.


“Yesterday he told me that he has changed his mind to become a fighter pilot.”


“I bet next he would like to become an astronaut and will finally end up as an astronomer!”

“How can you say so?”

“His plans are going away farther and farther from the ground.”


We don’t know what my son’s friend will become. We know our younger son has higher chances of becoming a mathematician with a specialization in calculus.

Wonderful childhood

Filed under: All in the Family,Around children — pramath @ 6:30 AM

Childhood is indeed most wonderful of the stages of a human life.

For example, my younger one’s.

If he can’t find his towel in a pile of 5 clothes, he will find his mom in a group of 25 and ask! Without fail!

“Shh! Don’t go in our bedroom. Mom is sleeping!” I stopped the eight year old.

“Papa, you don’t understand. This is the best time!” He argued back in low voice.

“Why? And what is her cellphone doing in your hand?”

“An experiment!”

“What experiment?”

“Shh! I am going to figure out which sound file suits the best as the wake up alarm!”

Karate kid

The grandmaster from Japan was in town. My kids were in a training seminar by the red belt guru.

The guru taught the class some great techniques of Kubudo. Then asked children to pick a partner of their size for practicing the defense technique.

Everything went good with the elder one. He has a black belt – and found a pairing black belt and the training went smooth.

The younger one has reached to a brown belt. Things went even better with him. His partner child didn’t understand that it was to be practiced turn-by-turn. So he always attacked – and the younger one had fun defending – and practicing – for full two hours. At the end he had almost mastered the technique!

He was all happy!

I asked him: “Did not your partner understand that he should take turns?”

“Doesn’t look like!”

“Did you not ask him?”

“Yes, I asked for his phone number for partnering next time! Where am I going to get someone like him?
