I am sure to have a whole bunch of gray hair ...

- after I ask Vansh for the umpteenth time to come to the table for breakfast and he doesn't comply till LUNCH.

- I ask him to pick up his toys and he keeps playing as though I never opened my mouth.

- my day with the kids begins with hearing a scream saying "I WANT MILK!!" when I have it all ready for him the first thing after I wake up! (and yes I do remind him every day to be nice and gentle when he speaks)

- a request to take off clothes and get ready for a bath is met by a defiant NO (as is a request for washing hands or brushing teeth) and then after a count of 5 (which worked earlier) when I proceed to take them off myself, I am met by a full fledged tantrum.

- as soon as he finds the TV remote within his reach, he turns up the volume to 60.

- the mantra in our household these days is "SHUT UP!!" ..mood decides the volume at which its said.

HHHHEEEELLLLPPPPP!!!!!! Just where does that magic button lie??

Neera - so good to have you back on blog! Should read your other post now...
Gray hair - well, the only solution there is a good brand of henna! :)
The tantrums of different sorts will continue on for a while! :))
Hee hee - feels good Neera! :)

:) Every Mom's rant! Vansh is not being any different than other child! I have had this phase too with Anirudh.

As noon said, buy a nice henna to cover those grey hair up! :D
