Okie WHY DIDNT ANYONE WARN ME that having a baby means the baby needs to go to school which means that the baby gets homework!!!
I tell this parenthood, its full of difficulties…and its not the easiest task on earth..the next person who tells me to have a second child and then say that arey woh toh aise hi bade ho jayenge aur pata bhi nahi chalega is going to get a big time spanking from me! I swear that!
I mean, forget the colds, coughs, asthmas, tummy aches, the pain of falling, the being naughty and getting scolded..I mean forget everything…can you imagine how much it requires to make a three year old draw simple sleeping lines….
This pint sized of mine drove me mad on Tuesday night
I did everything from cajoling, to loving to *gasp* bribing to shouting to scolding to threatening back to loving..but nahi
mereko nahi karna hai
RM: Kyon nahi karna hai
R: baase aise hi…bore ho raha hai
which left me wide mouthed and gaping
She wont draw 10 sleeping lines come what may.
RD tried telling her but nahi..amma karayegi…
okie so amma quickly finishes her cooking and sits with R saying chalo finish fast then I will read you the Thomas engine ka storybook
Nahi aap first read karo phir homework karenge
Okie so I make up an imaginery story..and tell her..she listens to it and says ‘amma vapis bolo na’
I grind my teeth in frustration and tell her again..
and she says ‘amma vapis bolo na’
and after that I tell her finish your homework and I will tell you one more
R: Amma, pani
I give her water and then tell her to start again
R: Amma, su-su
I take her to the loo and she says
Amma, nahi aa raha!
So I pick her up and bring her down from the pot and then make her wear her chaddi and pant and tell her to pick up the pencil
R: Amma, su-su
RM: but you said you didnt want to go na
R: Abhi aa rahi hai
RM totally frustated but takes her again
R: Amma, nahi aa raha
RM: arey R its only 10 sleeping lines finish fast na beta then we sit and read books and play
and then she touches the crayon to the book and looks up and smiles and says theek hai…I tell her..line draw karo straight and dont make it dirty
otherwise teacher wont give you star
Amma, mereko other page mein star dekhne ka hai
So RM shows her that and then she picks up some random page with some difficult pattern and says ‘amma, yeh karna hai’
Thats it I lose patience start screaming when RD intervenes and says Appa will sit..chalo do your homework
More crying, more drama, more irritation
and finally RD loses it and says dont let her do the homework and just picks up the book, keeps it in her bag and keeps the bag on top of the showcase..
Major crying session..FIL tells me go change your dress and let RD handle her for a while..
So, I go and change and all that and she comes crying to me saying mereko homework karna hai..appa ne mera bag le liya and all that
She promises to do her homework and so we remove the bag and give her the book
Again she puts the crayons on the page and says amma theek hai..I tell her finish karo beta…
and its the same cycle…
Finally after 1 hour of major drama, we are successful in drawing 10 Damn Sleeping lines!!!God, why didnt anyone warn me…why why?
PS: She did her homework with a big smile yesterday…yeh ladki na! She will drive me crazy I guess :):)
