Second Children

Vicky and I were arguing over having another child a minute ago. We have this argument every now and then: me for, because I'm sick of ex-babies who turn into smart alecky young boys and him against because according to him we haven't the money. Like I died and made him king of the household finances or something.

Anyway, so I said, "Your parents had a second child!"

He retorted, "And don't think of a moment that they didn't regret it!"

...
For those who don't know know, Vicky has only one sibling, an older brother.

Don't misquote. I said, "don't think for a moment that I don't regret it".

And I don't care if no one believes me, I know what I said!

I dont know...every child should have someone to share stories with (of how messed up their parents are/were). And where do you go when you are stuck for Bollywood trivia at 3am?

And Im a firstborn and would have hated to have no one to donate a kidney to.

Vicky -- I know what I heard and unlike yours, my hearing is pretty damn good.

Aneela -- LOL I prefer the first version of your comment myself. But then, mine is a singularly self centred universe. :)

hee hee sue...oh but you know deep down under all the bravado Im a wuss and live in mortal fear of the Angry Young Sis tracking my comments down. Beware of the Wrath of the Second Child Scorned.

Sue said...

Aneela -- Very true. Especially when it's an younger sister.

- For the past one year we have been having similar scenes
- but in our case...I am the culprit...a little flicker in the relationship and I feel insecure...
- if you have a strong bond between u ...go for it while u've got the age...the rest is sure to fall in place....
- sighhhh

I'm on your side though I did grin at Vicky's comment.

SUR NOTES said...

even if vicky did not say' and dont think i dont regret it', its a damn good line- thinking it post facto does not make it any less brilliant.

hi vicky :)

sue, does not mean i am taking sides on your argument. :)
though if you ever want my take on being an only child, having an only child, let me know. (a conscious choice taken by my parents, and taken by us too)

Sue said...

Abha -- LOL I can hardly wait for yours. Don't forget we want the same mad curls this time round as well. #2 has much to live up to. :)

Monika -- Of course they end. He's wrong and I'm right and there it ends. ;)

E -- Yeah right!

Gayatri -- You want another one as well?

Uttara -- Mine is the sensible side, na.

Sur -- Sure, I'd love to hear your reasoning. I do have single children cousins and they are happy enough but that's not what I want for Rahul. Mail me or post, please?
