Growing Old

My parents are here for a summer visit and Vrishank is thoroughly enjoying his vacation.

He absolutely adores my Mom and loves to have everything done by Ammamma.

Needless to say, there are times when my mom needs a break or cannot keep up pace with him.

She comes up with the excuse, “I am old and  so I am not as strong as you”.

My son heard this a few times before he quipped one fine day,” Ammamma, when will you become new?”

Jeez! How do I explain the complexity of life, Son? Growing old and back sounds simple enough!
