Dreams Sweet Dreams

I am trying to put the twins to sleep. And I am trying really hard. But nothing works. No lullabies, no stories, not even counting till 100. They just wouldn't sleep.

So we decide to play a game. "We close our eyes. All three of us. Nobody cheats. Now we have to think of the most wonderful things we want to dream about. So, who begins now?"

"Mamma. Mamma begins."

"Sure kids. So, Mamma's eyes are shut and she is dreaming of blue sky and blue waters, mountains and valleys. She is dreaming of a valley full of flowers. Adya next."

"Adya's eyes are closed. I am dreaming of moon and stars and the fairy who comes from the stars. I am dreaming of wonderful gifts fairy has got for me."

"Great. Adit's turn now."

"Adit's eyes are shut too. I am thinking of Santa Claus. And cars. Red cars, white cars, black cars, small cars, big cars. And motorcycles. And tractors and trucks. I am also dreaming of helicopters. And that big white plane."

Dreams sweet dreams I say.

They are so...'girl' and 'boy', aren't they, even in what they dream of? =) And you are so Anu. That valley, btw, could be Sonamarg, no? Ah, seems we did that millions of years back...

कुछ दिन पहले वक फिल्म आई थी, "वी आर फैमिली", उसमे काजोल अपनी छोटी बेटी को ऐसे ही सुलाती है...मुझे वो भाग सबसे क्यूट लगा था फिल्म का...
