The rage!! and the rage!

""Always end the name of your child with a vowel, so that when you yell the name will carryyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy."

Yes this is a line I read somewhere...and know I have done well in my life.
I've used this to my hearts content over and over again, the last few days...( 15 days so far..not yet done though!! )
I agree with it wholeheartedly....the divine feeling you get, as the name carries across and tingles in the air leaving you feeling content and smug, is a feeling only mothers get. And more so, moms of two teaching their kids for exams. But any mother will do.......I'm sure they'll agree with me.

The kids are 'nuts', I tell you..and have driven me to the stage of 'AHAM BRAHMASMI'. How else would you explain to a boy of 7 that whatever stunts he tries...in the end , he's the one who'll be writing and not his mom?

For a question " Why is oxygen important to us?"

His answer " How do I know? You tell"

**I was actualy smiling and choking on my laugh, when I heard it**

And he comes back from the exam...and apparently must have 'made blow torches while he spun a few rubber bands into magic catapults, while writing the paper'... He was pretty upset...and so when I said
" Thats the reason I ask you to stay put in one place and study and not treat the house like a gym..."

He very matter of factly says " Its ok ma!! its after all an exam!! "
Hmppfff, huh!! eh!!
What was that?

I really need to learn that... :D

And I have to learn a lot from them.


But I have learnt that when you really scream...a hollow, wall cracking scream.....letting the last letter just stay there hung suspended in mid air...it does bring a smile on MY face....
It feels satisfying...I dont even bother to look and see if it has had any effect on them....'cos i'm sure it hasn't.
And so the reason the younger one has his name ending with an " N" ...to deviate from the the statement and make my house sound and echo like a ringing bell.....

and to add to the cacophony his mother makes, he has learnt the latest rage in ringtones....
so my house is reverberating with this...... seconds being provided by the older brother...
and whoever dares laugh at me....
a virtual kick in the butt for all of you!!!


Yes!!! I am waiting so so ...for the break.....no screaming, no nothing...
Just Nirvana.....


and listening to this song in the meantime....
Jee karda - Singh is king

i needed this....thank you, thank you...from a "rowing in the same boat" mom....

On a serious note..I was of the opinion the concern for the children's studies had dwindled in parents over the years, may be due to lack of time and long working hours.. It feels really good to see this kind of concern in parents. Am sure kids will be thankful for long

after all, it is just an exam - :-D wow, that is an apt reply...
I am sure with you wont hv a moment of boredom when kids r around... :)

Jeekarda is an awesome number...

ceedy said...

Ok
Its obvious....I have to take the kick in the butt....there is no respite to that...cause I am laughing like crazy....

I told you..you have a genious in your house....what apt reply...
and it is summarized here in this little joke :
Physics Teacher: "Isaac Newton was sitting under a tree when an apple fell on his head and he discovered gravity. Isn't that wonderful?"

Student: "Yes sir, if he had been sitting in class looking at books like us, he wouldn't have discovered anything."

good start to my weekend - I am all smiles - thanks :P
