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

That crazy aunty who walks with her father – said the younger son about a husband and wife.

    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?

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

  15. @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!
