A blast from the past

Gems I discovered while cleaning old suitcases … God rewards people who clean old stuff in un-expected ways.  I got these photos as a reward  😀

Kid#1 was a smiley kid, chubby and active.  He loved to hunt and decimate the population of the insect world ….. with his bare hands and with any footwear he could lay his hands on.  He also had a temper (still does) and a bad-ass attitude …. actually both the boys do – and Ex thinks they get that from me.  What do I think?  Well I guess I am shamelessly proud of them, attitude and all.

He was energetic, and a happy child.  Once I took him with me to the beauty parlour.  He decided all the women wearing rollers or masks were animals and wanted to use his toy guns to hunt them.  Took me a lot of effort to pacify him.  Disaster struck when I sat down for my hair-cut.  He saw the lady bring a pair of scissors close to my head – and sprang to my defense.  He was squatting on the floor and bit the poor woman’s leg so hard that he nearly drew blood.  Needless to say I never went back to that parlour … EVER!!!

He discovered attitude and style very early in life.  Check out his body language in this pic

Kid#2 operated on the simple principle that the squeaky hinge gets the maximum oil.  He was blessed with an angelic face and he looked lovely crying – and he exploited that for all he was worth.  His favorite postion …. Mommy’s lap

Kid#2 and me .. wish I can get this slim again

And my personal favorite – its prophetic, the pilot as a child showing an airplane to his younger brother
