An 18 month update

It’s a belated post. I have been delaying it for some time and today I knew I just had to get it out of the system. Okay My Miss Little Sunshine at 18 months has turned into the naughtiest child I have ever known. Not that my kitty of toddlers is large, yet her aggressiveness and temper tantrums make me wonder where has that docile child of mine gone? She is now becoming a bully to the core and does not mind being nasty too. I and the hubs always think that has the time come for us to visit a counsellor. She is a brat at times and an angel in the next second. She would promptly plant a kiss on my cheek and say “shorrrrrrrrryyyy” if she knows one of us is upset with her. The child surely knows how to make us dance to her tunes, without us even realizing her clever act.


She has been weaned completely. Her night time feeds are over and now ven if she wakes up at night, some duitful patting comforts her. Now the task is to shift from her feeding bottle to a cup.


The milestones include screaming, running, hitting and an addition of new words in her dictionary. She is a chatterbox who will take just 10 minutes before opening up in front of a stranger. She will happily go off with any uncle or aunty who is a little friendly with her. She likes to walk in mamma’s shoes and would also like to pick a handbag and strut across the room.


My Miss Little Sunshine has made me realise how to enjoy giving her a shower even as I have an excruciating back pain. It has also made me know that I have oodles of patience and the God’s biggest blessing is my Sunshine to me.

My Miss Little Sunshine

I thank my life….

When I hold you in my arms.

When I see your gooey smile.

When you ask me to lift you so that you can rest your head on my shoulder.

When I see you sleep peacefully besides me like a fairy.

When you gently press those tiny lips on my cheek.

When you say words to impress me and make me happy.

I am extremely mad at you …

When you act as a notorious bully.

When you throw your food on bed, carpet, sofa

When you rub your food-smeared hands on my office wear.

When you empty my bag and attempt at tearing a page or two from a book.

When you throw a tantrum and wail inconsolably

When under all these situations I am still left helpless loving you more, my child.

The best moments in my life are…

When we take a walk, me pointing you to flowers, moon and stars.

When you have a bath with your dad so that I can finish reading newspaper.

When we walk together with you holding your hands.

When you feed me your food, carefully putting the spoon in my mouth (It’s another matter that usually its the carpet or the bed that gets the food eventually).

When you diligently repeat every word that I tell you.

When you make an innocent face, looking down when I am yelling at you for a prank.

A bully in the making?

I am very worried about my little one’s behaviour. She is adorable, friendly and usually listens to what we tell her to do. At the same time she is aggressive, is short-tempered and loves bullying. My SIL’s daughter is a month younger to Sunshine and is a quiet child. Now my dear Miss Little Sunshine loves her little sis but equally loves to pull her hair. So much so that we don’t leave both of them alone in each other’s company. I don’t know how to make her behave. It is not about being an embarrassment. It is more about Sunshine hurting the other child. We have tried different methods to make her see reason. Love, scolding, staring till looks could kill her, yelling…. Every rule in the book has been tried so far. She has this great fascination for pulling kid’s hair, and literally with all her force, using both her hands. Also, she doesn’t like to share anything with this little cousin of hers. She will snatch everything from her hand. I worry if she will be like this even when she enters kindergarten? How can I make her understand and develop love and compassion for the other kid? Any answers!!!

My Miss Little Sunshine

Yeah, she turns 16 months today. Another milestone!!!. I wonder how long will I be keeping tab of her milestones. Well, 16 is a special number. How will she be when she is sweet 16. As of now, she is a bundle of energy at 16 months.


My adorable cute little thing has started saying three word sentences, understands most part of the conversation and expresses her opinion strongly. She nods her head vehemently while saying no and yes is another strong head banging thing.


The cutest part is when she calls me lovingly ‘mamu’ or ‘mamaji’ Otherwoise it’s always mamaaaaa or mummmyyyyy. Only when she is in an indulgent mood does she bless me with those sweet little words. She calls her dad by his name, the way I address him. At times she calls papa as well. Her mamu (my brother) is always addressed by his first name and she thoroughly enjoys taking his name.


She has also started running ands its cute the way she runs d way Donald duck does. It is her favourite activity when she is in a cheerful mood. When upset, she doesn’t mind throwing a fit.


Naughty is an understatement for her. She is turning to be a bully who is not worried about pulling hair, especially to provoke reaction from others. I am worried at times about her bullying. Especially when her target is my SIL’s daughter who is a month younger to her. She loves pulling her hair and at times hitting her. She naughtily gives us a glance before undertaking the activity and we are ready to pounce on her shouting NO. But she goes ahead, nonetheless, making me n hubs wonder what should we do?


She is a darling and a brat. This we say in the same breath. I wish she grows to be a fine human being who is not a bully but also who doesn’t take any shit from anyone.


At 16 years, things may be different. My sweet little bundle will be struggling in the world. Trying to make people listen to her, which she does now also. Only the ways to the means would have changed.
