You are just a Mom

Phew! I am writing after a very long time. Well, I was writing a lot of other stuff, but it’s been long since I wrote on my blog. Feeling a little jittery here.

Bear with me if you find any faults… just treat is as my first post… which most of you didn’t read actually 😦 Now, I am feeling bad.

Let me leave all these silly thoughts behind and directly come to the point.

As you read the title of this post, ‘You are just a Mom’, you will realize that this is also one of many posts about my kids. Yes, it is. What can I do, I have nothing else to write other than my silly conversations with my kids.

So, it so happen that Renne, my youngest, he likes to watch cartoon, just like the other two. Only thing, he likes to watch it from up close. If I am not near, watching him, constantly, as I love to do; he will be there just in front of TV within minutes. It is like every 10 minutes I have to peek from my kitchen to check on him. He never disappoint me. He is always near it, and as soon as he will hear me coming, he will jump and run towards couch in the same speed as flash, his superhero would do.

I have a very nice and soothing yelling voice, my kids and hubby won’t agree to it, but even my nightingale voice have a limit. So, instead I prefer giving them time out.

With Renne situation too, when I got tired of telling him again and again to watch TV from distance, I gave him a time out of 10 minutes.

Now, you must think how heartless I am, depriving my kid of watching cartoon for full 10 minutes. Yes, I am cruel, and you are not the only one who thinks this way.

Renne started crying, but he had no other choice, so the defeated soldier retreated to his time out zone.

When someone is in trouble, who came for rescue – Knight in shining armor.

In Renne case, it is his big brother, Otu.

To freshen your memory, Otu is just 1 minute elder to Renne. Both are twins. But Otu feel that 1 minute is enough to make him guardian of Renne. In fact he says that Renne is his baby, and not mine. Parenting is not that easy kiddo.

So, Otu Singh, came to rescue. Seeing his baby brother crying and not been able to watch cartoon, he came in kitchen to face me, with his hands on sides, just like a boss ready to confront his worst employee.

Otu: Why you punish my Renne?

Me: Because he was not watching TV from a distance.

Otu: You are just a MOM.

Otu: He is my baby. You can not punish him. Tell you that – You are just a mom.

Me: I am a Mom, and I can do anything.

Otu: No. Moms can not punish their kids. Moms only love kids. They don’t make kids cry. You can not punish him. He is my baby.

Ok, by now, I was speechless, and convinced too, that I am just a Mom.

A Mom of three kids, who are courageous enough to fight with the supreme leader of home (me), for the sake of each other.

Happy to be ‘Just a Mom’.  😛 

Happy Birthday My Darlings – Otu & Renne

Time flies….and when it comes to your kids… time flies faster than a rocket towards moon.

It was just yesterday when my twin bundle of joys, my twin boys Otu and Renne, were first came in my life and now it seems like, they are running my whole life; or, I am running after them, all the time.

On your third birthday, I wish that you grow up to be gentlemen and always be honest and respectable.

I Love you, boys, and here is a little dedication to you from me and your Papa, on your third Birthday.

Frolic Friday – My Hubby is not going to fight for me.

When you fall in Love with your Prince Charming, the love of your life; you have a vision of how he will turn out to be. Like you expect that he will take care of you for the rest of life; he will not let anyone else come between both of you; he will not give up on you, ever; he will not allow any one else to put claim on you, on your love….. etc, etc.

I was hoping the same…. alas. 😦 

My heart broke few days back, when another fellow came between us. He literally dragged me by my hand and took me away from my husband; and my strong built husband didn’t even said a single word. He just let me go, so easily. 😥

My Hubby is not going to fight for me.

It so happened, that one fine day I was watching a romantic movie with my hubby, sitting on our couch, sipping tea and laughing at the silly jokes in the movie. It was like one of those life’s small happy moments. I was cherishing all this, when suddenly my youngest, three-year old son, Renne, came to us.

‘MAMMA’, he said, literally shouting, ‘don’t sit here‘.

I asked, ‘why’?

He replied with irritable tone now, ‘Don’t sit with Papa. Come to my side‘, pointing towards our loveseat couch.

I was not surprised, Renne has always been a mamma boy. If would have been a kangaroo, he would have never come out of my pouch.

I said to him, ‘ sweetie, I am sitting with Papa here. You sit on your couch. I will come later‘.

‘No’, he replied. This time he was sort of angry, not only on me but on his Papa too. I sensed it from the way, he looked at him. ‘Come to my side. Don’t sit with Papa‘.

He was blatant about it.

But I want to sit with Papa. I love him too‘, I said.

No, you love only me‘, he replied.

By this time, I was looking for some help, some support and I turned to my husband.

My husband, the love of my life, my savior, my soulmate….. ‘Why are you not saying anything? Say something to Renne‘.

Hubby – ‘What can I say? I don’t want to come between you two. I can’t fight with him.‘ :O 


See, he gave up, so easily.

Renne won.

My Hubby is not going to fight for me.

Till movie last, he was holding my hand, as if I could have run away. He didn’t even let me go pee. Thank God! He is my son and not a possessive boyfriend/husband.

God, save the girl, he is going to marry some day.

Coming to my husband, he slept on the couch that day.
