A week ago today, Rahul and Leila’s Teta (Arabic for grandma) returned home after a quick week-long stay with us in Chengdu.
In between early morning whines Leila asked, “Where Teta Mama?”
“She’s in Lebanon baby.”
“Waaaah, where Tetaaaaa Mamaaaaa?”
“Rahul love Teta. Rahul love Teta Mama,” he said.
While having her diaper changed half an hour later, Leila said:
“Teta said, ‘Je t’aime’ mama.”
