"I want to be an editor like Mama." Xena says this on some days. On other days, she wants to be a bunny. On yet other days, she wants to be a kitten. We have not received her final decision yet.
However, I can see that she has been trying her hand at editing. With very mixed results. When Viv got back from the US last week, he asked, "How are my darlings?"
"You know, Daddy... Mama is unhappy and wants to marry again." She immediately reported.
No, there was no Ekta Kapoor level music/silence/shock at this 'news' of hers. Obviously, Viv knew that the situation was nowhere as scandalous as she'd made it out to be, and it was probably her editing skills at work.
"Why don't you tell him the full story?" I asked her.
So she did. This was the full story.
Xena (looking at our wedding photo album) - Mama, I don't like this photo.
Me - Why not?
Xena - See? Daddy is smiling, but you're not smiling in this one.
Me - Hmm... you're right. I do look quite unhappy in this.
Xena - So what do we do now? I don't like this photo. Because you're unhappy.
Me - I have a great idea. Maybe Daddy and I can get married again and then we will take some more photos and I'll smile happily in all of them!
Xena - Yes! That's a great idea. Let's do it when Daddy comes back.
Me - Okay!
