Drama Queen in Action

H1was awaiting the arrival of her Grandma and Grandpa with such anticipation. I didn't know she drew 'I love you' cards for them. She's always drawing them for her Thaaththi and me. I was watching Jamie Oliver make a dessert with Rhubarb, and I just happen to have some Rhubarb in the fridge and needed something to jot down to recipe on. There was a paper with some of H1's drawings, so I took the notes down on the reverse side of the drawing. (In my defense, she does tend to leave her drawings lying all over the place.)

Then I went into the bathroom for a shower. After a while, there was heavy pounding on the door with, "Ammi, come out for a second. AMMI, Come out NOW!!!''

When I did finally open the door, there was H1 with hands on her hips, tapping fer foot going, 'Why did you write on my card for Kiri Amma? Why? Ha? Ha?"

She throws open her hands palms facing up and exclaims, "Do you know my hands are hurting after all that drawing? Ha? Ha?"

Then she looks down with her neck bending at such a dramatic angle and says, ""Do you know my neck hurts after looking down to draw? Ha? Ha"? Why did you do it? Ha?"

After much apologizing from me, she calmed down enough to go draw another card, but the moment her grandparents did arrive she went rushing off to tell them how horrible her mother was to draw on her much labored card for them.
