Car Jo Jo

Sometimes when I want to sleep, my mom puts me in her lap, shakes her lap, and says,

“Jo Jo Jo Jo
Kunju Kutti rei rei
Chella Kutti rei rei…
Aryan Kutti rei rei”.

This continues till I close my eyes and sleep. I simply bask in her lap.

Yesterday night I was playing with my Car toys. I have five cars now. I kept all the cars on top of my elephant pillow and was excited to see them falling one by one when I shake the pillow.

“Aryan, time to sleep.” My Mom said.

I did not bother.

After some time..

“Aryan, come on sleep now. It is already 10:30 PM”

My reaction was the same. I was busy playing with my cars.

Then my Mom came near to me and said. “Aryan we will do Jo Jo to car and make them sleep first.”

I did not know what she meant. Then she put all the cars in her lap and started saying

“Jo Jo
Jo jo
Car kutti rei rei
Aryan’s Car rei rei”

Within minutes all the cars slept. Then my Mom placed them on the top of my elephant pillow.

I was happy because my Mom put my car toys to sleep. Then happily I went and slept in her lap…

End of the fooling story!!!! Oops, Did I get fooled?

That's wonderful - your cars got some good night pats from your mom ! You know Aryan, sometimes mums have to trick their little ones to do what they think is best for them :-)
