Living on the Edge

It feels like forever since I blogged. I guess this has been my longest absence from the blog ever since I started this blog. All I can hope at this point is that may this be my last long absence, for at the back of my mind I always want to come here and empty my worries, share my joys and be a part of the lives of hundreds of blogs I read.

Like every month, today too on its first day I am hoping against hope to write daily. If not a lengthy post a few lines, to get myself back on track on writing things about myself. The funny part is, during my absence I have been writing a lot for many reasons but still couldn’t find time to post.

Let’s put everything at the side today and talk about one thing that’s occupying all of my time and mind these days. Pari and her terrible tantrums.

I am sure most of you and almost all mums are well aware of the phase, ‘Terrible-Twos’ Β but in case of my daughter this dreaded phase is in full bloom right from the time she turned eighteen months.

It’s very exhausting both physically and emotionally. My day is spent playing the Tom cat chasing Pari who seems to outsmart me in almost everything like Jerry. It’s not all fun and entails a generous dose of drama, emotional meltdowns & violence too.

I am 100% sure that of all the things I wrote so far the one word that has caught everyone’s attention is violence.

Well, the sad news is it exists and the good news (yes, there is a good side to it as well) is the victim of that violence is everybody except Pari. Yeah, that’s the twist to the drama in my life.

I am seriously going to be writing a lot about her in the coming days for she is doing so many things at one time that I can write a novel on her even at this age.

  3. Just in case I ever dole out free advice on the “best” way to deal with two yr olds’ tantrums, health issues, best habits, etc. pleeeease bear with me. It isn’t as if I know exactly what works and like to show off – its just that I’ve forgotten the toughest parts!LOL!!

    Unnecessary trivia about the song – this music got released the first time I was pregnant. Those single digit days of my pregnancy, this album would get me all queasy, pukey…. Weird thing is, it STILL does :/


  4. Don’t worry about the Tom and Jerry violence. Nowadays, kids are very intellegent. They know the difference between what is real and what is fiction.
