On a lazy sunday morning

Sunday morning breakfast. Easy. Lazy. Father and son conversation over a lazy breakfast
H: My birthday's coming up next month. What gift will you get for me sweetie.
A's eyes light up, face animated, all excited - I will get you stars, like the ones in my room! Then you can also put in your room.
The kid's thrilled. The Dad a bit let down.
H: And what other gift will you get for me..
A rushes in to his room and gets a Ben-10 package. Happy Birthday Baba! This is for you. It's very big. It will fit you. It's just like mine. Then you can wear Ben-10 bandi just like me!
Aah.. these melting moments.
Continuing the lazy Sunday.. It's just 10 am. We've already been up a few hours. Yes, we're like that. The Damn Body clock just doesnt realise it's a Sunday. The maid's gone. The cleaning up chores all done - well atleast the ones I cant turn a blind eye to. Breakfast made by H - soupy noodles. All 3 of us sprawled out on the chitai, with the balcony glass doors wide open. The view opens out to lovely blue white grey monsoon skies, cool wind, the 4 palms swaying away, the yellow genda and the pink xyz adding a dash of color. Kid finishes and jumps off dancing to the balcony. Then stoops down to smell the roses..sorry er genda fool...
I say to H - feels just like a holiday.
H: Ya. Almost.
Me: a chirpy sigh. What's missing? its such an enchanting moment.
H: Room service!??!
