The Antics of My Grown-up Kids – 2

Hello friends, here I am with another episode of the Antics of My grown-up children. There might be a plenty of them in the memory disc of parents, some of them  are worth mentioning. In my last blog, I told you about my daughter, this time it’s about my son, who has just freshly bid adieu to his teen years.

As for my boy, for the most part of the time, he is at home,(as long as he is awake), there is a headphone always tucked over his years. So most conveniently he prefers not to listen to half of the things I ask him to do. For another half I have to repeat several times to get it done.

Most often than not the rest of the three of us prefer to do it ourselves instead of nagging him and wasting our time. It’s fine with him too! Afterall he is the youngest in the family and likes to enjoy it’s perks.

To tell you a secret, I still have to feed him veggies, otherwise he wouldn’t touche them with his own hands. He calls them fodder, fit for cattles! For the sake of vital vitamins and minerals I am yet to drop the habbit. My daughter adds that after his marriage, he would still look for his mother to consume his veggies!

Once, an object from the dressing table fell to the ground,  me and my son happened to be standing there at the time. We both checked out the thing. Moments passed, no body moved. Owing to  my impatient nature, he was pretty sure that I would be the first to pick it up. But not this time!

When the expected, didn’t happen, he wondered and looked at my face and found me gazing at him sternly. The next moment he relented with an embarrassed smile on his face and bent over to pick the creme tube up and put it back on the dressing table. I couldn’t prevent myself from breaking out in laughter.

Friends, other than being this laid back and exasperating at home, both are real gems. They cared for us so maturely, when we both came down with Covid and got hospitalised, last year. What more one could have asked for as parents

To tell you about their another sweet gesture, they have gifted me a new cellphone and a wrist watch respectively from their internship money when I joined school. It is really very special for me.

Still, I remain persistent in my effort to reform their erring ways, hope one day I will succeed in that too!

Thanks a lot for reading the post. Wish you all a very happy Father’s Day.

  2. That’s so sweet that your children gifted you and I remember gifting my mom a saree during my first month salary back in 2010. I miss both of my mom and dad whom I lost a couple of years back.
    The relationship among children and parents is the precious bond and nothing can replace them.
    Its really very interesting to know about your kids Mousumi and I wonder how you make time for everything. I really get motivated by you. Happy Father’s Day to you πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you Manisha. The bonding between the children and parents is special indeed!
      I have to practically juggle to manage time for everything. But I do not complain because it keeps me occupied. Glad to know you feel motivated by it. πŸ™‚

  3. I thoroughly enjoyed reading the second post about your children, particularly, your son this time. He sounds typical of many boys of his age. You did make me laugh with the part about having to feed him his vegetables. He sounds like a good boy at heart and it was so kind of your children to gift you a new phone and watch. How generous that is. You have obviously brought your children up very well.

    I don’t know which part of the world you are in but it seems to be Father’s Day everywhere today. I do hope you and your lovely family enjoy this special day. Xx πŸ’›πŸŒΉπŸ’™

    1. Thank you Ellie.❀
      It’s really the grace of God that they turned out well. I had to put in a lot of effort to make them study, when they were young and used to worry about their careers.
      It gives me satisfaction that they have gifted me with their own money, when both are students! It’s precious. πŸ’

  4. I am definitely not a mother but I do have a younger brother who behaves in similar ways and he gets pretty hard to deal with at times. However, I guess the teenage years are a little overwhelming for all and this is the phase where they discover their core being and build accordingly. Patience is the key I guess.
