Several times, I heard in childhood from my mom that history does repeats & remember the way you are harassing me, your kid will do the same with you….
Listening to this every time I have a same reaction, “Come on mom, who gone tell them? I am not going to do so & won’t allow you to do it…. I laugh & move away…
But guys my motherhood experience makes me believe that history does repeat. God itself plan the entire prank to make you realize that how much your childhood naughtiness had hurt your parents.
Let me share with you, one of the incidents: –
My mom started working when I was 5yrs old. It was not an option that she choice… she started working as a school teacher so, she can support dad financially. My mom use to complete all her household chores, prepare food & then leave for school after locking me inside the house. She does that for my safety, but I always get irritated, when she locks & go. I was a fussy eater too. I just check what she prepared & don’t eat it if I don’t like it. I not only don’t eat it but also to save myself from her scold, I used to hide the roti’s under the coat, behind the cylinders, etc….. About which she used to come to know during Diwali cleaning, till that time I ran away to my mama’s house.
That was my side story….now let me tell u how it repeated in my life once again……
I quit my job, so my son won’t pass through same feeling, which I used to feel (a feeling of loneliness & parents not able to attend any events). And he was never being a fussy eater like me in childhood. So, I was very much relaxed about that too.
But as I told you, god had different planning…..
One day, when my son came back from neighbors house for dinner, his tummy was full (he had something from their house). As he had a fear of get scold by us for having junk food at dinner time, he didn’t inform us about it. He started having his roti sabji…….within 15 minutes, he finished everything. We were happy & surprise that… Today, he had it so quick. We didn’t doubt on him, as he used to eat fast if he wants to do something after dinner, or he is starving. I just took his plate & brought the cloth to wipe the area he was sitting & having food. Suddenly while wiping something stuck in the clothes & came out of the coat, nearby which he was having food….
My son was scared & we were shock….
Small-small pieces of roties, one by one coming out of the coat, while every time i wipe with cloth…. Me & my husband were totally confused, what to react. He is just 5 yrs old… so scolding for this is not a good option & his age is not enough to understand the value of not wasting food. Still, we decided to guide & make him understand that if his tummy is full just tell us & also try not to have anything from anywhere before dinner time. With that we told him that there are many kids in this world, who hardly get one time sufficient nutritious food to eat. So don’t waste or throw food.
So guys you can see that how & which way the history repeated in my life. My son & hubby were not aware of my childhood naughtiness. No one told zumi about my incident but still he did the same thing same way. This was not my first experiences of history repeated; many more incidents happened in my mommyhood, when I missed my mom & feel guilty + sorry for harassing her.
Guys maybe you too faced such experiences in your mommyhood. Do share with me in comment section.

Ha ha..it was happened with me one time. my elder daughter used to put her left over roti from tiffin in her coat..and I had similar reaction like you when it had happened..it is the roller coster ride of motherhood where we get a chance to experience different incidences..lovely post for blogtrain.
History repeats itself. After all, we have passed on our genes to them then we will find some similarities. My kids have picked up lot of my traits.
Ha ha ha. I just one yesterday. My brother used to tease me at the name of my art. I used to do silly things in the name of art in my childhood and yesterday my daughter painted her doll so badly that it look like a Annabelle or Pappi Gudia, and I couldn’t say anything but laugh out loud- Mittali.
Oh, yeah, that’s true. Kids get our qualities both good and bad. So, sometimes we might have to see our bad qualities closely through them.
In my case it was present and not history, as happened with my elder one who used to pour milk to plants and feed roti to birds or else below refrigerator, but with time i explained him the importance of food and the hard work involved in producing it.
But yes history has repeated in my house too for some different incidents and its true the genes and nature kids pick form parents without even telling them this.
hahhha this is soo true!
Sure it does repeat. I’m experiencing the same with my daughter.
Haha. History does repeat itself. It is amazing to see how my daughter does the same things as I would do and obviously no one knows about them.
Definitely my kids troubles me exactly the way I had troubled my parents. Very well written..
Yet to reach that phase. But I remember me doing this way of hiding food 😛
Reblogged this on anitapratapsingh.
hahahaaa… i am rolling on floor laughing. my mom used to say that “Tumhare bache tumse badla lenge” and karma does hit back. I used to make a thousand excuses while studying and now my 4 year old is also doing the same. After all, he has got my genes. This is a lovely entry to the prompt.
Also, i have recently started using grammar tools like Grammarly which immensely helps in editing articles. Give it a try and they will help u too. Keep writing. 🙂
This post made me laugh! Yes children do get many traits of their parents, and unfortunately these can be the naughty traits too!!
funny story, you better start thinking what else have you done that you might have to face in future 🙂
Hehe… history repeats and yours is the story of mischief that’s repeating in your son’s avatar;)
Yes, it does! I too have seen so many traits that I have passed on to my kids 🙂
Hilarious! I used to throw away my medicines. Since I know this, make my children have their medicines in front of me!
Yes you are right. History repeats. You would only realize when you are a mom and then you have no other option than repenting and feeling sorry for your parents.
Aww this is so cute and funny…Im sure you wouldnt have known whether to laugh or scold him..haha..These are the precious memories of childhood which we shall cherish forever…
Its absolutely true, history repeats itself. Only after we become parents, the things that our parents did for us, make complete sense.
Yes I strongly believe history does repeat again, n loved this incidence of urs which was a little fun but with message to the kids not to lie,not to hide things and not to waste food.
Children hide things with the fear of being scolded, it’s always good to make them understand in a nice way than scold them. History does repeat 😀
Hahahaha…this is the cutest entry of the whole lot. I was smiling wide all along. Yes, history repeats itself. 🙂
Very nice write up! I have strong belief that history repeats itself.
Haha, adorable and so wrong at the same time. I used to hide food too in the garden whenever I did not want to eat something. History does repeat itself, just hope my kid does not hide things like I did!
I enjoyed your funny account. Children are reflections of their parents and it’s natural for them to inherit our qualities and traits.
