I'm sure all of you would have already read about the whole goat mask making exercise and the activity at his school.
So when I asked him what did he say when his turn came.
"Thank you teachers.
Thank you children.
I'm a Goat.
I say woof-woof.
I give milk"
Me : Goat says what??
Betu: Woof woof
Me: *slapping my forehead* woh to Dog bolta hai. Goat kya bolti hai?
Betu: After thinking for a few seconds "baaa"
Me: Fir aapne woof woof kyun bola?
Betu: *looks blankly at me*
Me: Fir Ma'm ne kya bola?
Betu: Sab hasne lage
Me: *in a disappointed voice* koi nahi..next time theek se bolna
And I left it at that. I know I should have at least praised him for speaking up in front of all but I was quite disappointed. He was saying it so well at home.
Today he had to go and say these lines as a part of a small skit "I've never see an Elephant which is blue in color".
So over the weekend I practiced it with him. But he rehearsed these lines with a lot of reluctance. Every now and then he would say "Par maine to blue elephant dekha hai. Dumbo!! cartoon network mein aata hai." :D
Now I wonder what will he say during the skit. Will he be able to say the lines properly or will he add these lines of seeing a blue elephant? :D
