Been a while since one updated the posts on karmickids, but these have been trying and irregular times, with umpteen houseguests and absentee cooks and assorted ailments that have kept one from the computer, and the few occasions that one has been able to get into work, there have been other pressing things to occupy finger time. In the interim, brat has been having one hell of a party with the many kids who have come down to stay at our place for their summer holidays--my husband has three sisters with four children between them, and they are perhaps, brats only chance of developing social skills with children, even though the youngest of this batch is a grown up nine years. Sadly though, they all pamper the diapers off him, so there is no chance for him to develop a charm em routine, they are already precharmed by him. So all he does is play the pampered brat and continue to get more pampered. His every movement and gesture becomes a novelty...kishi throw the ball, kishi clap hands, kishi sing song, kishi have bathy...all hell is going to break loose when they go back to their respective homes and kishi gets left all alone and realises the sun doesnt exactly shine from his behind. Meanwhile, we have managed to get some sleep after all these days of exertion and merrymaking, which means that head touch pillow at past midnight, and bawling begins for gu gu at around 4 or 5 in the morning. Cant complain, thats more sleep at a stretch than one has had in a long while...and yes, the maid now gets greeted by a happy Hiiiii. And then again Hiiiiii. Some more HIiiiiii. Till one whisks the brat out of the kitchen. Wonder why his English speaking abilities have to be tested on the maids.
