* Abhi and Achu are playing in the living room while I am in the kitchen. Suddenly, Abhi starts crying or screaming.
Me: Achu, leave Abhi alone.
* I am in kitchen, cleaning/cooking. Nanny P is giving Abhi and Achu their dinner.
Nanny: No, baby, don’t try to cough and vomit.
Me: Achu, don’t do it.
# Abhi, Achu and I are on stroller walk. They each have a blanket with them. Suddenly, I see one of the blankets is thrown out onto the road.
Me: Achu, Why did you throw the blanket away?
(It was actually Abhi who threw it away :))
# I am trying to find the TV remote. I look for where it is supposed to be or on the couch or on the countertops. Roam around a bit more and look behind the barricade in front of TV. It’s there. (Along with many other things)
Me: Achu, why did you drop these things here?
(TV remote is the not the only thing. Recently I have recovered my phone, my ID card, alphabet cards, toys, power cords, building blocks from behind this gate. In fact that’s the first place I look now, if something is missing).
# I come back into the living room and find food spilled on the carpet.
Me: Achu……Why did you do this???
This scenario is few very short years down the lane, but, we are sure it’s going to happen. 🙂
In future school…
# Abhi: It’s okay Achu. Leave it.
Achu: No. I wont. Common out now, who the hell tried to beat up my brother. Common, out now.
(All kids run away from school…)
# Abhi: (comes running and yelling) Amma, Amma..
Amma already knows what it is. She runs out to get Achu out of that fight she picked up with neighbors kid.
