And mamma has to travel
Now that Mamma's book is out, Mamma has some travelling to do in order to promote her book. This travel takes her to Delhi this week, from the 2nd to the 5th. And the brat goes to Lonavla for his first overnight trip ever on the 5th and returns on the 6th. He has been very excited about this to the extent of packing every toy he possesses in a huge suitcase with a token Tshirt and one underwear to satisfy the requirements of being modestly clothed on said trip.
He was also, quick to notice that Mamma's suitcase, with adequate warm clothing, given that despite her obvious layers of subdermal insulation mamma does shiver in the slightest breeze, was being packed with clothes.
He perched himself on top and watched the process. Many clothes were being packed. Mamma is not, in keeping with the rest of her, a light packer.
"Mamma," he finally piped up, in a woebegone voice. "How many days I will not see you?"
Mamma's heart suddenly broke realising that this will be the first time ever in eight years that she would be spending a night away from the brat. Suddenly, her big boy doesn't seem that big after all.
