Oh, I have never done any of the yearly/monthly round up. I don’t have a knack to write mushy things without making a fool of myself. Yes, I did write mushy mushy letters to my now husband, then boyfriend. But if I read them now, I might as well dig myself a big pit and hide in it. Anyhow, with a soon to be 2 year old and the jet age, the “terrible twos” have seemed to hit us sooner. Or, just that I have been lucky to have an easy child who is suddenly wanting more control over her life. She does have a belligerent streak in her and she is now bringing on the tear works! Sometimes she tears up so much, that with those large eyes and large puddles of tears, she is unable to see and sometimes tends to forget what she was crying for 😉
She is now quick to call out for “rescuers” in her dad or me, depending on who is refusing her something that she wants or if both of us are discipling her, then its time to call the big guns – the grand parents! How, how do these kids learn such tactics? And how do grand parents, who have been so strict with us when we were kids, say, let it be, give her what she wants, she is just a child! Hypocrisy I tell you!
We took Anou swimming a few times, and she loved it! She keeps wanting to go swimming, we have to find the right place and time for it. I guess sooner rather than later. I am also thinking of some kids music or tumbling/gymnastic classes for her. That should be fun!
In other developments, her new loves are Jungle Book title song and Lakdi ki Kathi from Masoom. She will see the computer or phone and start asking for lakdi dum or mowgli. She can be quite determined at times to watch it! She insists on watching it atleast once before we take her to daycare. We are trying to keep her away from it during meal times since we don’t want her to eat and watch TV at the same time, although we know she might eat better being that distracted!
She also loves to emote – chota tub and motha tub (small and big tub) We have two of her bathing tubs and she loves the chota/motha reference. She loves to find other things that are big and small of the same kind 🙂 pretty cute!
That’s all for now, especially after a long hiatus.
