Kiddo and her grandmother (my MIL) share a great relationship, particularly as she would regale kiddo with stories from the Panchatantra and Jataka Tales.

Kiddo was about 2 and half when my mother in law narrated the story of the ‘Thirsty Crow”.

After the story ended, I overheard kiddo telling her grandmom that the crow must not have been very intelligent as he could’ve easily put a “straw” inside the pot instead of stones and drunk water.!!!!

Apparently, in her generation, plastic straws are easier to find than stones.  LOL!
