Tejas bites Mamma.
Mamma smacks and shouts at Tejas and stops talking to him.
After a while Tejas is trying to get a piece of twig from Ojas.
Ojas says- first say sorry to Mamma.
(for a twig -yes he will do it)
Tejas- in his quietest voice- torry
Ojas - No
Tejas- louder- torry
Tejas- still louder Torry (even though it sounded sorry to my ears and therefore I was wondering why Ojas is not accepting the apology)
Ojas- say Sorry not Torry
Mamma-Aha moment and while I was at it
Ojas-and Mamma, you also shout kiya and maara (slapped) so say sorry to Tejas!
(All this for a piece of twig- Tejas in trying to get it, Ojas in trying to keep it with him- IMHO even though I would like to think that my son was championing my cause)
