A few days back,my neighbor dropped in and was aghast seeing my son helping himself to some tea from a huge mug. Her shocked expression conveyed a myriad of things, the foremost being your son is just 3 and already tea??
What do I tell her ? Enjoying my evening cuppa of the steaming beverage has almost become a ritual and that has caught my son's fancy. He sure knows when his mom brings the strainer out and starts spouting chaaaee chaie and anxiously wait till I pour a little something for him in to his cup.
The huge mug is his favourite and as as he balances the cup in his hands,taking care not to spill the beverage, I swell with pride at his maturity.As long as he enjoys his regular health drinks (read complan) and drinks tea in moderation, I don't see any harm in his new found liking ! What say ?
So how did I react to my neighbour's quizzical expression ?
With a casual shrug and a simple Don't Judge Me look!
