H for Hong Kong: Daddy's Little Princess

Every year, in April, the Blogging A-Z Challenge kicks off with a bang and now in its seventh year running, it continues to garner even more participation than ever! Click here to read more on the challenge! And if you're participating too, do leave your blog site in the comments! I'd love to visit!


“Mommmmyyyyyy, Aryan won’t talk to me,” wails my five year old. The chubby face is streaked with tears as she jumps up the bed and settles into my lap.

“Hush hush. Tell Mommy what happened, Mommy will fix it.”
“Aryan wants to go to McDonald’s, Mommy.”
“And?”
“Daddy says I can’t go!”

I look across at Vikram working furiously on his own laptop. He seems to be immersed in work but I know he’s listening.

“Vikram?”
“Well..,” he says, as he scrunches his nose and looks away sheepishly.
“What is it, Vik?”
“I don’t want him getting the wrong ideas ..,” he shrugs. “This is Hong Kong. People get married at McDonald’s all the time!!” he exclaims, his eyes going wide at the possibility.

I grin. How can he be so impossible and cute at the same time? 

“She’s five, Vik! Your little princess isn’t going anywhere!” I roll my eyes at him. 
“Come on Sia, I’ll take you!” I say, as our little one squeals with delight.
“Don’t say I didn’t warn you!” he shouts out as mother and daughter head out the room hand in hand.
