The Antics of My Grown up Kids! — 1

Hello friends, seeing the antics of the little children while growing up, thrill the parents immensely. But sometimes the actions of the grown up kids fill us with glee. As you might know that I have two kids, both have reached adulthood, yet their behavior at home most of the time touches the borders of adolescence, leaving me confused whether to laugh or cry.

To the outside world, they  can be termed as well turned out, but at home they are as laid back as they could. I have distributed some household chores among the two. Like laying the table for lunch or dinner time, filling up the drinking water bottles or clearing up the table after the meal, if they happen to be present at the said time.

Often, I bring the food laden plates to the table, only to find the mats are not laid, or the dining table is not cleared of the tea things . During the meal the bottles would be half empty or no water at all. As I was a hard task master during their study time, so I preferred to be a bit lenient towards their other duties towards the household.

They both know that mother would shout and reprimand them and will do the needful herself. They would make such a sorry face afterwards  that I had to let go of the matter with just issuing a warning not to repeat it in the future. Another thing that I greatly dislike about them that, they would carry their mobile phones to the dining table.

My scolding would stop the habbit for hardly a day or two, then again stealthily they are at it again. Once my daughter was very engrossed in her phone watching the antics of BTS, a K Pop band( she is an  ardent Army!), she stretched her hand to reach the bottle of water without removing her eyes from the screen of her phone.

Her hand was searching, waiting for somebody to hand it over to her, as the object was standing at a distance on the table. I was silently watching the proceedings and she was unaware of it. Then her concentration was broken by my voice, ‘ shoo, shoo…’ . She looked at me bewildered and found me gesturing with my hand as if asking the bottle to come to her.

Then understanding dawned on her and she looked at me sheepishly and the next moment I couldn’t help myself from breaking out into laughter at the hilarity of the situation. She exerted herself to stand up, blushingly, as if she was caught red handed, and leant on the table to grab the bottle.

Friends I must tell you about the antics of my boy in the next post, so stay tuned.
Thanks for reading the post , wising you all health and happiness.
Adieu for now.

  2. This is such a charming and refreshing post, Mousumi. An absolute pleasure to read. I can completely identify with your relationship with your adult children. They sound typical of today’s generation, who are so caught up in their gadgets that they hardly know what’s happening around them. You certainly pointed out the funny side of it, which is great.

    I have two adult children, too. My daughter isn’t too bad with her phone and will quite happily sit and have a meal with me without attending to her phone. My son, though, is another ‘kettle of fish’ (an English term meaning very different altogether). He rarely sits at the table without his phone, which annoys me as I see it as bad manners. However, I do have to accept that that’s what the younger generation are used to. I tease my son and tell him that one day I will put superglue on his phone as he likes it so much and can’t put it down for a second. I can see the funny side of it, though, which is just as well as I don’t think he’ll change his habits now.

    I’m looking forward to reading the next part of your story about your son. You are an excellent writer. Xx ❤🌼💜

      Feel glad to know about your children. We parents have to tolerate so many things, we dislike in the habbit of our children. Yet we adore them more than anything else and try our best to mend their erring ways. ❤ 😊❤
