A day – not at all apt for me

From morning , in a hurry burry I finished all the household work, which anyways I have to finish before my kid is off to school. With a severe toothache and headache ,I slept a lot yesterday, yet morning was not fresh enough as I thought it would be.

As I was wrapping up every work in the kitchen, my younger one woke up and came to me. But to her surprise, her mom was too busy to even say a ” good morning to her” . Later for which I felt bad too. Yet the complaining and rush kept on going till , I some way managed to finish up the packings and getting them ready for school.

I ran and to my surprise, the bus was quite early and waiting for us there, which is most of the times the other way round. As soon as I came back home after dropping her to school, I was damn tired, and the breakfast not even inviting to me, since I made Upma which was never enough reaching the standards of my mom’s cooking. For a moment I missed her a lot.

Still ,hunger is not a compromising part ,hence I ate what was left over. Finally, as I sat there wondering what to do, even thought I have lot many pending things to do .In such thoughts I wondered my mind away and was lost in front of the TV , even though I was not watching much, and started looking into the pages of my FB, yet found nothing interesting much.

In the end, I just wanted my younger one to sleep so that I could take a nap too . Not to my surprise, she was full of energy and not ready to sleep. ( AT that moment I thought I could have sent her to school, anyways too late to think).

The moment I asked her to sleep after lunch, she will start playing around even if she is damn sleepy. Finally, when I convinced her to bed, she wanted to go to the toilet, and that two times. At last, I was almost lost- no patience, all sleepy and tired. I told her am off to sleep.

Again she came and lied down beside me, jumping from one side to the other,doing what not to make me irritated. Finally an hour back she slept and not for surprise – AM WIDE AWAKE!!

Why is it that when we want something it never comes to us, and when it happens, we are even least bothered about it?

Interesting but the fact. May be I need to convince myself at times and learn to accept the things as it comes rather than demanding for them. I guess this is a very common situation in anyone’s life. I remember as a kid , I used to fight with my brother for the remote to watch movies and songs while he had some weird tastes. But now when am all alone ,I seriously don’t have any thing to watch. Sarcasm !

Siblings

Before being a mom , I used to wonder how people manage kids, and when am a mom , i keep wondering how do people manage more than one kid. 

How do they manage when both the kids cry? How do they manage to buy same toys for both kids ? How do they travel with two or more kids? Like that so many questions pop up in my mind. Some advice me , not to have second one , as they find it difficult to manage ,ans a few tells me , its so adorable to see the kids enjoy together especially sibling enjoy together more.

I know the real fun of having a sibling , as  I have a brother with whom , I fight a lot, play a lot, and many more things we do. We share our thoughts , our dreams , its so special always to have someone always to hear us.How much ever we fight ,its difficult to stay away. 

I still remember the days ,when I used to feed him his food in his mouth ,even though at times I hate doing it , as its like pampering him more still , i enjoyed it , may be even now , I can do it. We both talk for hours ,even if there is no topic as such to talk about.He makes fun of me, play pranks , hit me, even I do all those on him still we are brother and sister. 

At one point in life ,we all require someone like a brother or sister ,even if it to fight or for a shoulder to cry on. With a brother or sister , we learn to share,love, kindness and  friendship  , everything doesn’t happen easily in any relation , it takes time and time heals everything.When I see how bigger kids take care of their younger ones , its so beautiful .

A sibling may be the keeper of one’s identity, the only person with the keys to one’s unfettered, more fundamental self.  ~Marian Sandmaier

 

Troublesome Bedtime

Image

The other day I was discussing with my mom about our  mischievous lovely darling  and her sleep habits and then I discovered a few other things about myself and my brother’s childhood too.

Whenever my lovely girl goes to bed, she needs all her toys especially those that cannot be put on her bed while going to sleep. She takes all the blocks,drum ,sticks and whatever she plays when she is about to sleep, and the biggest problem is that we cannot remove one from the bed at all  before she gets sleep. 

We both have to sleep in midst of all her toys and sometimes she just cuddles near me and push aside all her toys to her dad’s side and poor her dad, he has to find place to sleep after moving all those toys to a  side. :). Anyways am quite not lucky enough , because she carries a xylophone stick , that most of the times she pokes into my eyes or head or ears and where ever she can before she doze off.

And once she sleeps off , we remove all those and keep it near our bed , because at times middle of the night she wakes up and asks for all her toys .Damn her memory …she counts all the toys ,so can’t even fool her then too. 🙂

As I was complaining about her to my mom ,she said , this is no different from what myself and my brother were doing when we were kids too. Kids at all stages do the same  🙂 , may be a little less or a little  more.
