Mixed Bag

The little monsters are making it difficult for me to be away from them now. I feel like just watching their antics the whole day- of course without the perks - crying, poo, pee etc. Their current favourite word is dadda said insistingly even though I beg them to say mamma. And you must see daddy going mushy over them. Their favourite hangout is the vegetable drawer and they love playing with the potatoes and nibbling at the garlic pods- acquired taste!
The shape sorter toy has been well taken and they have learnt the trick real quick. the ping pong ball is the ever favourite and they follow those all over the house like two squirrels. The remote lock of the car is copied dutifully- "aa aa" as soon as the car beeps so and they do recognize their car among the crowd of cars parked.
Yesterday both were introduced, rather they got themselves introduced to noodles. They loved it- served on a plate and hand picked.
Their favourite game is hide and seek around the sofa with each other. I once read that twins play hide & seek a lot esp peek-a-bo around the curtains as it reminds them of their time together in the womb.

Watched Dhoom 2- liked it - quite entertaining but they could have had more escapades of Mr A- at least to the level of Bunty aur Bubbly. Was it reminiscent of Ocean's 12? Anyone? BTW, what exactly was Bipasha- Sonali-Monali doing there- no frill value either. Abhishek was dashing as usual, Hritik's make-up quite versatile and Aish gorgeous. Both ladies did a great job in toning up. Tapori Uday deserves a good mention but underutilized like Circuit in Munna bhai sequel. The end was predictable. Refining the criminal seems to be the mantra now days exp if the criminal is a dashing good looking hero- (also done in Bunty & Bubbly, catch me if you can, Dhoom). The songs were unnecessary and too many. I must say they have done a great job with Sathyam online ticket booking. Even the snacks can be booked I suppose.

Went to the Kabab factory- don't know why but I could not enjoy it as much as I have done before on all occassions. May be because I went with hubby and got the lousiest table. Right in the middle- table for 2 and we could hardly talk to each other without all diners knowing what we are talking and if we moved too much the various extra cutlery, crockery and the sauces would have toppled off so had to concentrate top much on the food. The flip side of going as a couple to a well known joint is that you more often than not get the tiniest, most un-private and least comfortable table. Restaurants - are you listening? And then there was this card trick that the magician showed us. I am still wondering whether we were hypnotised for that split seconds.

The new company has Worldspace channel music. I discoverd it recently either because they turned up the volume and it is now audible in my room or they had stopped playing for a while nad re started- whatever, I didn't care to find out. Eat mangoes, don't count the trees.. But only english played. no hindi - sob sob.
THey also use the Humidous machine for water- it uses atmospheric moisture to create drinking water. quite nice. Has anyone else reviewed the product post use? Is it fit for home use?

Hi ITW, R u talking about the dehumidifiers which we use here to soak up the moisture in air in our houses ( due to a very wet climate )? Never tried drinking that water or are they using some filters inside to make it drinkable quality ? Anyways, good on them for recycling the natural resources.

Itching to write : How do u manage 2 twins?And how do u manage to go for dinners and all without the boys?Have somebody at home who takes care of them?

Rio said...

yr twins are really cute :) as for dhoom, i just blogged my impressions and i beg to differ from your views on a few issues. uday chopra if he is even an issue :) is horrible! i thot he was ok in mohabbatein but here his squeaky voice and sad dialogues are a real pain to watch. and ash is thin in the movie, not toned at all, she just lost weight. i guess one think everyone agrees on is how awesome hrithik looks :-)

Noodlehead said...

gee, i'm glad i'm not having twins...the thought of having to cope with two babies would have killed me!! anyways, i'm doing ok... VERY apprehensive about the labour :( it seems like it's happening too soon! i'm in month 5 now and time's going by too quickly...waaaaahhhhhhhhhhh!

Managing twins, working, eating out and watching movies - what is your secret?

Life Lover said...

Hey reading all these cutsie posts is so much fun. But you do amaze me with your multitasking skills- full time work, twins, husband, home. what about inlaws? do you take care of them too ;)

itchingtowrite said...

HI ALL,since questions are similar, I am not answering individually-
we do take a break sans the double troubles leaving them with in-laws. else we will never get a chance to even talk to each other. my inlaws take care of the twins when I am in office and they do not stay with me. i hav a baby helper & a house maid to assist.
while it was difficult to handle them for a year but now thy are much manageable and easier to handle than a few months before as now they can engage each other playing hide & seek, snatching toys etc.. touch wood but there are some days when i feel like tearing my hair out or running away and office seems heaven compared to home. and till now i can't say i hav got a good night's sleep. but then even without them for 2 nights (office conference) i did not get sleep as they were not there near me!! hubby expresses the same when he travels

Has to be me said...

Cool eh?! Good 2 note abt the twins. My daughter is also into similar activities!
I watched dhoom 2 as well. It was just ok...not upto my expectations. Hritik was just toooooo good....loved his looks. Uday chopra was awfully irritating!

Minal said...

Kebab factory !! Nice.
It's been so long that I don't remember the last time that I went. Need to go again soon.

The best part of this post was the line "but there are some days when i feel like tearing my hair out or running away and office seems heaven compared to home. and till now i can't say i hav got a good night's sleep. but then even without them for 2 nights (office conference) i did not get sleep as they were not there near me!!" Truly brings out the parental touch.
