And the blame goes to...

Kids are sometimes naughty, lazy, stubborn, selfish. Sometimes they are good, hardworking, kind and sociable. Their likes and dislike vary a lot. Some kids dance to any bit of music, some of them like to sing their own songs, some of them are quiet. What makes them different?
In India, I live either with my in-laws (dad, mom and granny) or with my parents. So, usually when Aisha does anything, everyone has got a reason for that particular behavior. The main reason being inheritance. My MIL, DIL or granny put the blame on my hubby while my Mom and Dad blames me! It often goes like this:

- - - - - - - - - - -
me: Mom, Aisha hasn't started teething yet!
Mom: Oh, don't worry, You too started it late!

Aisha is dancing to the rhythm of the blender.
MIL: She is like her aunt (hubby's sis), dances to every sound.

I scold Aisha for thrashing her toy on the floor.
Dad: Looks like she inherited her uncle's manner of destroying his toys.

Aisha can't sleep without the fan or a/c, like me they say! With the cold I can't sleep it now. So its either me and Aisha staying awake all night or me alone staying awake.
- - - - - - - - -
So that is how the story goes. Blame the genes.

Kisses to great granny.

Did you see her praying? And helping Mamma in the kitchen to burn the wood-burning stove with a dried coconut leaf? Watch it.

Ha ha.. I can totally relate. But I personally feel that it's not a 'blame' but more like they want to say that "our little angel is more 'close' to us in different things they do..." But I know sometimes these comparisons can be really annoying....:)

Love from me and Liya to you and little champ!
