Introduction

Hi all,
Thanks Sandeepa for giving me the chance to join this group.
It really feels good to hear the "mom-stories" from all over the world.
My name is Dayeeta. (I usually use Dee as a nick name , but it seems I have a "hum-nickname" in this site so I switched to DR.) I am based in the Netherlands. I have a 2.5 year old son "A" and a husband "A". To avoid confusion, I will use A-SENIOR for the husband!
;-)
I work full time outside home . A is a sweet kid ( though he DID break a wine glass yesterday)..going through his "terrible two" phase, has been saying NO to many things since he was 2, but now started understanding the meaning of it too!! , speaks a funny language called DANGLA (a mix of dutch and bangla- though we make it a point NOT to talk dutch at home), loves tandoori chicken and pasta .........will keep the list updated...

Will definitely try to keep the posting-spirit on....
cheers!

Sandeepa,
I asked him to clean his room last weekend,he did and then he went to our master bathroom,put the stopper in the sink and turned on the faucet to play and came downstairs.

Trisha and I laughing at something and he started enjoying that,totally forgetting the sink upstairs until it started to leak thru' the ceiling in the kitchen.We all screamed and ran upstairs to see what's happening.There was an inch of water on the floor,flooded all the drawers and shelves,my lipsticks and make up etc floating!!!
We cleaned all that the whole afternoon.We now have a huge water stain in the ceiling in the kitchen which needs to be taken care of in summer when it dries completely!! Boys are so different from girls you know!It takes quite a while to mature I guess!:)

Oh yeah,Tushar got a little smack from me on the backside and I don't think he will EVER do that again!!;p

DR said...

Thanks Asha,

so you mean..the word Terrible will stick around for quite some time now?

Dr,don't worry,it's not that bad.They don't mean to do it but happens sometimes.Once they see what we go thru to clean that etc,I think they will learn.

Sandeepa,stop it now girl and don't encourage the little devil!!;D
Lot of scraping and painting to do in Summer for us now!:)

Hi DR,
Good to know we have the same nicknames :). That was bestowed upon me by my younger brother. In Tamil you refer to a girl who is younger than you as 'di' . However this is not considered respectful for use on an elder sister and so my bro came up with an ingenious way to still call me Dee and claim that to be a short form for Deepa and that kind of hung around :)..
Hope to hear more from you on this blog..
-Dee

Roopa said...

hi to Dees, sapna good to know about youall!

Oh Asha dear!! you still did not loose your temper as much as me!!

With boys it is really difficult to handle which i am facing currently even with one hand fractured he somersault up and down, so always one eyes must be gazing at what new mischief he is up to?

DR said...

Hi all..
dee, in bengali however , "di "is used for elder sister..so actually you can tease him back saying that he respects you in bengali!!
;-)
Asha, its true that things are not so bad...but still feels nice to complain once in a while..now that Sandeepa has given us this place to "be ourselves"!!
;-))
swapna, one of my friends says, "the bigger the kids, the bigger the problems"...she has a 14 yr old daughter..so you can imagine biger problems!!!
;-)

The bottomline however is:
Time flies...we must enjoy every moment of these little/not-so-little devils as much as we can...
