I remember writing this post about a fight with Hd and in the comment section I went on to say that our fights are getting shorter and shorter after the baby. Well, its now official that Ashu is no more a baby. And we are back to the usual these days. The one thing I do when we fight is deprive Hd of any information and sooner or later he has to come to me to beg for some info. Alas, I ve lost that privilege now thanks to my talkative daughter. So he comes back from work today and I give him a cold shoulder. Ashu as usual jumps with joy seeing her dad and they both ignore me. Goes on to say, "Amma did nt make mammam. I had pasta for lunch" when Hd asks her what she ate! Then lifts my shirt and feels the baby kicking and asks her dad to come and touch my tummy! Goes on to tell him about "our" day! There goes my strategy of withholding information out of the window. The man who would have apologized by now has nt even turned to my side yet. Instead both had their dinner together(He got us take away dinner as we had planned before the fight. That's another score for him!) and are reading books now. Sucks! Well, at least theres another baby due. But I'm sure Ashu would nt miss a detail even then! Its ONLY trouble when they grow up, I tell you.

Poor Boo :(

On the brighter side, since there is another small baby coming + Ashu is going to be away in school for longer time, your fights are bound to be shorter/lesser. Did you think of that? Did you? Did you?

So with holding information might still work. The trick is to have a another new baby just as the second one is off to presschool....

You game?!

:) Poor you, how is a wife supposed to put up a decent fight with a cheerful chattering child around?

I was going through the older post you'd linked to and was mighty surprised - the exact (right down to the tiny details) same thoughts in my mind too. But I just wasn't able to figure out one thing - were you serious in the previous post or was it written in a lighter vein? I'm not familiar enough with your writing style to make that out...
