Height of cruelty- Tejas hitting his toy butterfly with his toy doggie
Height of reward- I strike a conversation with Ojas when he wakes up in the morning. He picks up his bottle and hands it to me in reward.
Height of challenge- Ojas surpasses himself in his achievements. He holds his feeding bottle cap between his toes, the next level is the feeding bottle, followed by his pillow, his bolster & finally my pillow. The ultimate goal is to be able to hold one end between his toes & the other in his mouth.
Height of vigilance- Tejas periodically removing the Velcro of Ojas’ nappy (to check if he has soiled it?)
Height of dieting- Ojas touches the roti to his foot before putting in his mouth until he is done with it.
Height of desperation- If we give the bottle to one baby who is hungry, the other automatically wants the bottle too.
Height of competition- Who gets into my lap first when I come back from office.
Height of comparison- Ojas comparing his foot with Daddy’s. What next?
Height of rivalry- Tejas crawls and climbs over Ojas who is taking his feed and cries until he gets it. Sometimes even snatches the bottle from Ojas’ mouth.
Height of anger- you take them out of the door & then come back into the house & the reaction you get post that.
Height of table manners- I gave Tejas a piece of bread & he grabbed at my plate & wouldn’t eat his bread until I gave him a plate of his own.
Height of fitness- Ojas doing push ups when trying to crawl & doing Adho mukha shvaanaasana when trying to stand up
Height of choice- the toy they select from their toy basket would be the lid of a box or a clothes clip that would have accidentally found its way into their basket
Height of choosiness- among his toy mobile phone, a normal cell phone & a flip model cell phone, Tejas selects the flip model every time and hates it if it is not flipped open before handing it over to him
Height of dadagiri- both shout at MIL aaayyyy if she arrives late in the morning
Height of frustration- Ojas trying to scratch his bum over his diaper
Height of provocation- Tejas snatches the remote from Ojas' hands, "runs" away in his walker, returns to Ojas, dangles the remote in front of him & runs away again.
