About being a mother is when your kid grows up. I just realized that Anjali stopped saying ngea. She always used to say that to express her delight. She used to do it all the time when she was small.. when i lifted her on my knees, when she used to sit on my knees... when i used to call her Tutu..
Now she has other ways of expressing delight, smiling such that her gums show, squealing etc. but it made me very sad to realize that I wont hear her ngea ever again.
