chattery firstborn is quiet for 10 minutes. i see him flattened on the living room, colour pencil in hand.

me: what are you drawing?
firstborn: i dont know yet. i’ll know only when i have finished.

baby param can say now three words: amma and appa.
the third word he says is “chips” and goes and stands next to the fridge.

tell me. someone. anyone. where did i go wrong?
