In case this blog gives an impression that I'm in control of this parenthood stuff, here are some lesser-known facts that I'm not so proud of
-I can't get Anurag to brush his teeth regularly (even say once a week).
- I have never managed to give any supplements to the boys - calcium, iron, anything. They resist it and I have stopped fighting the battle.
-I have been too laid-back with the vaccine schedule for the boys. Anurag still hasn't got his 18 months shots yet and Kabir is overdue for his Typhoid vaccine. One of my excuses is that there hasn't been a period longer than a week when Anurag hasn't been sick or recovering from sickness in the last few months. Moreover, unlike how things worked in the US, I don't have pre-scheduled appointments with the pediatrician forcing me to stick to the schedule.
- Kabu was day time potty trained by 18 months and I thought I was brilliant for making that happen. At 2, Anurag still refuses to sit on a potty and Kabu got out of night-time diapering only recently.
- I love to bake cakes, muffins and cookies for the boys. And then I am forced to eat them myself so they don't over indulge. And oh, I usually eat most of the chocolates meant for my kids.
