Akhil is my 3.5 years old son, who is very cute, witty, intelligent, and pesters you with questions. I love spending my time with him and answering his endless questions. One such incident.

Yesterday morning, me and akhil were to clean his mats and tables. We thought we could take it to the backyard and clean it there. And my mother made a caution note, that there could be lot of mosquitoes ready to bite us. I replied, it is ok, we will manage with a tortoise.

And we both we came out with a stick of tortoise mosquito coil, and lit it and kept it near us. As we were cleaning, akhil asked me, “Amma, tortoise ethi vaichaa, tortoise varumaa??” Very Happy
