Code Language :)

This happened a couple of months earlier. A very common way of parents of kids aged two and three to communicate with each other on touchy topics like candies and juices is to spell out the word. For instance, if I want to ask Ashwini if he would like to have a chocolate I would say "C.H.O.C.O.L.A.T.E. khaana hai?" This is to avoid getting into a tiff with Vansh on giving him one too. Now one day we had a playdate at our apartment and there was one mom with a daughter Divya who is Vansh's age and another one with a daughter Riya who is slightly older than Jiya. So I asked Divya's mom "Would Divya like to have J.U.I.C.E.?" because I was not sure about her stance on the same and the other mom goes "Woh kya hota hai?" and it had both of us in splits. It also so happened that just a few minutes back she had been asking us about snacks and finger foods she could start offering to Riya and she thought we were talking about another one of those. Still laughing, we told her about our code language till the kids get the hang of spellings :))
