Growing Tricky!

May 25, 2010 3 comments

These days my Manu is growing a bit more stubborn and adamant… No matter how much we try distracting him, he just woudn’t budge. The usual episodes of wailing and throwing tantrums happens over water. He insists on having water all on his own. Mostly the first sip will be the only one taken properly. In a matter of seconds rest will be spilled over the floor dripping from his dress. Or he will try to pour it into some plate or whatever he gets hold of.

Everyday after dinner it has become more like Appa’s duty to make him drink water. Manu will have his cup with a very little amount of water in it and R would try to feed with another cup. Sometimes it works. Sometimes he demands for a spoon to play with, pretending to feed us. When he is cranky, he would need both the cups and the spoon and still he wouldnt settle. If we try to snatch any of them from him, he would fall on his knees screeching and roll over the floor in complete repugnance… Sometimes it just goes on for a long time and needless to say that it goes beyond my forbearance threshold… And I would leave him all on his own, feign ignorance. It never bothers him. He happily continues what he was doing… Once he is done with it, then he’s back into action… as if nothing really happened… Very tricky sometimes!

When he feels that Appa is actually not happy with what he did or if he gets a little bit of scolding, even a stare for that matter he would suddenly toss off his mood and go to Appa flashing a sheepish grin… He knows certainy how to mend Appa’s temper and fall for him by showering kisses….
