Morning over breakfast this took place with the elder1
L1: Appa.... I want to go to a boarding school.
Me: Well .. they might not take you as a boarder in your current school(her school has a few boarders) as we stay in the same city. Perhaps we can send you to a good boarding school in Yercaud or Ooty.
L1: Sheepishly ..... oh no ... I dont want to be too far from you ..
