Earlier it just used to be, "Papa cook." Lately, however, it has mostly been -- mumma cook. It's not an observation of us cooking in the kitchen. It's a banishment when he has to choose between one of us being around.
I guess he got this idea when usually in the evenings, I just had to get the dinner ready, not just for us, but for Sameer as well. I would have to tell him that mumma needs to go and cook even though he does not want me to go. So if ever Rahul was around, he would tell Rahul, "Papa cook." But a few days ago, he got up in the afternoon and he wasn't feeling well. He has had a cold and cough the past few days and he wanted his dad around. Rahul was at work. Sameer wasn't ready to accept that. So he goes, "Papa de do, Papa de do," and then he tells me, "Mumma cook."
Same thing happend a few days earlier. I guess it was nice while the "papa cook" phase lasted.
