Polite aren’t we? I said thank you to Tejas and he replied- Tat Youuu.
• Auditors in the making- Many times during the day they open the cupboard where the dustbin is housed and stand and carry out their inspection peeking into the nooks and corners and even tried to poke into the rubbish
• We are getting independent – they can sit quietly through out the drive on the seats with the safety belt clasped- child seats?? nahh
• We drove mamma and dadda mad- they were all over the place during the office party and became generally the talk of the town that day
• We plan the walks- they decide where they want to go during their evening walks- mostly outside the complex gate or where the kids are playing
\ • Don’t you stuff our mouths with that food- they like to do the hand to mouth thing. They will take the food in their hand and self feed. They like it if fed on the tricycle
• Future chefs?- they will sit on the kitchen floor and throw all the vessels out
• Ponga Pundits- (Faux priests)- they religiously give company to daddy during puja and touch their head on to the floor
• Tata- when we leave for work, they give a polite tata but otherwise a riot happens behind the closed main door/ bathroom door/ bedroom door- it’s generally considered impolite to close the door and egos are hurt when the kitchen entrance is blocked
• We know what makes them tick- when we do not respond to their so called requests their way to elicit a quick one is to fall nose down on the floor and lick it or hit the floor with the head or run and fall on the floor or simply stand, jump and sit on the floor with a thud to hit the bum. If on bed do a free fall albeit carefully
• Ride the sympathy wave- if one gets hurt and is been getting all the affection, try and fall down, cry and run to the available person for sympathy
• Friendly Neighbourhood- today they were holding hands when they woke up in the morning.
