Ananya was about 3 when this happened…Ameya about a year and a half.
It was one of those afternoons at home and the kids were generally dawdling about when Ameya had a good bout of cough..
Ananya: Ameya, close your mouth when you cough.
Ameya being Ameya, didnt hear it, of course!
So, Ananya came to me and said, “Ameya does not close her mouth while coughing and I have told her already!”
Me: Ameya is still young, she will learn as we keep telling her repeatedly….
So, the next minute, Ananya hops over and starts, ” Ameya, Close your mouth while coughing, close your mouth while coughing, close your mouth while coughing, close your mouth while coughing….”
