Rama and I walked into a toy store today. Naturally, she was drawn to the princess costumes. I couldn't quite make out what she was saying. Possibly, she was talking to herself, as she often does. I engaged her, anyway.
Me: Pardon me?
Rama, holding a blur of pink toulle and lace and satin, which was actually a princess dress: I was just talking to myself. (Thought so). But do you want to hear what I was saying?
I bend down.
Rama, in a stage whisper: Will my mommy buy this for me kaya?
