..And calls you by your sister's.
Meet my brother Iboo. [You might remember I tried to give him away once. My mom didn't let me :C]
Aka Ibrahim, but I like to mess up his name as much as I can, and so we have Ibzoo, Bibeen, Been Been, and my Mom's fav, Iboo Shani, which seriously doesn't even make sense [well, neither do the others but this one takes the cake, k?], but moms *shakes head*, what can ya do right?
So Iboo just came from Karachi, two weeks ago, where my Mom and Dad live. My sisters and I live in Lahore with my grandmother. Its a long story, and no, no ones divorced or had a fight... YET... ;)
But yeah, thats how it is.
So my mom visits us here pretty regularly , like once in every two/three months and it is on those one to two week visits do we get to see our two year old baby brother.
Its kind of sad you know, because I'm missing out on all the major things in his life.
Last time I saw him, he could only say 'baby' and 'Amna' and 'Peacock' [Thankyou, Katy Perry.] But this time? WOOOWWW.
His vocab has like TRIPLED!
He can say all sorts of things now which is great and shit except, HE REFUSES TO SAY MY NAME!
The sister who has done the most for him, the sister who has taken care of him like her OWN GODAMN CHILD. AAARRGH.
Its so frustrating since hes picking up millions of new words, for example, he knows he has to call our grandmother 'Nano' and hes learned my little five year old cousins name- Rabi- well he calls her Yabi, but still okay?
AND THE WORST PART- He knows my other sisters' names PERFECTLY! Which is a fact they obviously take great pleasure in.
Sister1: Ibrahim! Say 'Amna'!
Me: Ibrahim?! Say 'Sadi'!
Me: No baby, Sadi! Sa- Di! Say Sadi?
Me: IBRAHIM SAY SADI!
Ibrahim: *giggles* Amna.
Sister2: Ibrahim, say 'Mina'?
Me: Ibrahiiiim SAY SADII?
Usually at that point I just give up.
BUT TODAY I TRIED HARDER.
I tried to bribe him with a Sprite from my Happy Meal and then some Jelly O's. But although I got him to say 'TA' and 'DI' [breakup of 'Sa' and 'Di'] he just would NOT put them together.
In other news- I JUST HAVE TWO EXAMS LEFT!
Then the Summer Scene is totally meeeaaan babay.
I have a ton of things planned- first of all, be expecting a LOT of book reviews. I've written quite a few and I'll be posting them up periodically.
My to-be-read pile is GINORMOUS and filled with a number of really, really awesome books, which I will def be telling you all about, so stay tuned for that!
And then there is my trip to Karachi!
I have not been there since January and I cannot wait to hit Sunday Bazar, meet all my friends and attend the Farewell/Prom, just like last year.
Gonna be FUNFUNFUN.
