Me: “I love you Ayaan” (Ayaan is 2.5 years old)
Ayaan: “No”
Me: “I really do love you”
Ayaan: “I don’t love you”
Me: “huh?””
Ayaan: “I don’t want to love you”
Me: “But I really, really love you”
Ayaan: “I am not talking”
Me: “Ayaan!”
Ayaan: “I said, I am not talking”

And he walks away.

Ah, all those sacrifices, costs, sleepless nights … and this is what I get in return!
