Dizzy* Heights- Version 2
Continuing with my previous post of Heights
Height of Dodge- When I want Ojas to give me whatever he has in his hand, I say “Thank you”. He immediately gives it to me & before I can take possession of it, he takes it back & runs away.
Height of Starting Early- Ojas sings aa aa aa in the tune of bheege honth tere song of the movie Murder …well - almost
Height of Unsportsmanship spirit- I play hide & seek with Ojas & Tejas. If they cannot find me, they cry
Height of Piousness- Both join hubby when he does the puja
Height of Teasing- I tell Tejas not to lick the floor; he looks at me & then licks it again.
Height of Studiousness- both fighting for the single Alphabets book they possess.
Height of Similarity- Both will take a pair of socks and play with it- “banging” them together
Height of Persistance- Ojas is playing with a dangerous toy, I snatch it & give him another. He takes it & throws it away and does that until I give the dangerous one to him.
Height of Challenge- Tejas stands up holding me/ chair, leaves his hands and smiles to himself till he is able to hold himself up.
Height of Playfulness- Tejas thinks Ojas is playing with him when he crawls fast. Seeing him do that, Tejas grins, shakes his head, crawls rapidly & tries to hide in my lap
Height of Daredevilry- Ojas used to be scared of the food processor. Now, he goes to the kitchen in his walker and stares at the food processor straight “into the eye” when it is running.
Height of Technocrat- Tejas has removed the “Fn” key of my sister’s laptop
Height of Buttering- Tejas will look sweetly at my sister or hubby when they switch on their laptop
Height of Sixth Sense- Ojas will say Ta Ta when he sees someone wearing their sandals or picking the handbag.
Height of Engrossment- They gobble up the entire food while watching ads on TV or some song
Height of Cultural Activity- They favour certain songs and rush to the TV whenever those songs are playing. Ojas will dance (arms moving balle balle) and tejas will have a foolish smile on his face.
Height of Cleanliness- During meals, Tejas will wipe his mouth over my dress.
Height of Grooming- Both will wipe each other's face with their nappy pads.
Height of Participation- Both will have their own glasses in the Juice shop
Height of Arrogance- The look on their face when they are standing at the steering wheel
