I must put these down before I forget them. In his innocence, my younger son often pronounces things in his own way sometimes making them unintentionally funny. Some of these are:

Sid: Harry Potter
Gautam: Harry Copter

Sid: Avada Kedavra
Gautam: Avada Kabada (ho gaya kabada :))

Sid: Leviosa
Gautam: Simosa (very close to samosa :))

(Sid’s craze of Harry Potter reflects here)

Sid: Umpire
Gautam Vampire (shrieks!)

Papa: King Cobra
Gautam: Kumkum la

Hi! I am a professional Content Writer and co-owner of a Technology startup, Tranquil Software Solutions Pvt. Ltd. I am a Major in Chemistry and MBA in Marketing Management from NMIMS, Mumbai. After having worked in Brand Management, I took a sabbatical when I had my kids. I did dabble in Teaching and Medical Transcription in my quest to balance my work-life after my kids. And finally I stumbled upon writing. Having started this blog in 2008, I ventured into professional content writing. And I continue to grow and work with some amazing people in the field of writing. This blog still continues to be a strong reflection of my thinking, opinions, perceptions and wisdom. I am mother to two bratty boys and a Labrador and loving wife to a wonderful man. I go the extra mile for friends and love a good conversation. Uncomplicated, I tend to open up easily to those close to me. I have lived around the world including the US and Europe. I don't have it all figured out, but I am enjoying the journey that is life!

    very funny this.
    sometimes when Tanvi says things like these, i too imme want to jot it down somewhere for posterity but then promptly forget :(
    good you posted the Gauthamisms

    and just a thought: you’ve named both your sons thoughtfully – wasn’t Gautham Buddha’s original name Siddhartha? was it consciously done? or just happened so?

    hahaha….I guess I heard about some television showman named Harry Copter…but I don’t remember where….

    @Sujatha I know that happens, doesn’t it! About the names, there is an interesting story. When Gautam was going to be born, all of us were hoping for a girl including big bro Sid. So, we had mainly concentrated on girl names. For boy names, we had I think 10 options among which was Gautam because Siddharth and Gautam were synonymous names. But, it was Sid who wanted the name Gautam, don’t know his reason for it. And, so that came to be :).

    @Shilpa He just turned 5 :).

    @NRIGirl You are so right! Just the other day, we were watching some old videos and pics and reminiscing!

    @kavita I take pics. I have to take more videos too. Somehow, I’ve become lazy.

    @Santosh Thanks for your visit. Sure, I will visit your space.

    @david Really, I didn’t know that!

    These are certainly posterity-worth. I still remember many of the kidspeaks from the childhood of my brats, even nephews and neices. Good idea to compile them. Love the boys :)
