We were sitting in the hall when I asked Pihu, “Before you question us what day is it today, we have already got something for you. Can you guess?”
“No, daddy! Please tell me already,” giving her puppy eyes, she requested.
“Just like her dad. Restless,” my wife whispered, a lopsided smile on her face.
“Okay, fine! So, it’s Teddy Day today, and here is your present.” My wife brought the teddy bear from the bedroom. Pihu stood there with her hands upto her face, smiling as wide as she could.
“Yay! I have 5 now in my Teddy team.” She was beaming with joy. “But, Mumma, why don’t you have one?” That question came out of nowhere.
“Me? I have, no? Your daddy.”
“Oh, is it? And that's because he looks like one?” she giggled.
“Probably.” My wife smiled sheepishly at me.
“Okay. Then daddy is the leader of my teddy team.” Pihu shouted with joy. On hearing this, her mother started laughing as if she was gonna die laughing. Pihu joined her too, while I stood there trying to find a comeback.— % &
