Hana seems to have entered the phase where everything needs to be done in the way its meant to be. Change the sequence and she’ll start getting worried. Here are a few examples:
1. She listens to “huppy” (if you’re happy and you know it..), followed by wheels on the bus on youtube. If I accidently put on wheels on the bus first, she starts screaming “huppy” on repeat until I change it to huppy.
2. I can’t use imran’s cell or laptop neither can he use mine. To each their own.
3. Everyone has to use their own glasses, spoons and plates. No changing.
As much as I’m loving everything has a purpose/place and everything in its place stage, I can’t wait for the flexibility to set in too. I really, really, really want her to be easy going, flexible kind.
The OCD genes seems to run rampantly through my side of the family and luckily it spilt out by the time it reached my cup. I love being able to just get up and go and do things as they come. Nothing needs to be done NOW and oh well, life goes on. Alhamdolillah, Imran’s the same and it’s really helped that Eesa’s gotten it from us as well – well apart from the same phase at the same age!
Hana, I hope you find your balance soon and start focussing on the greater and deeper purpose of life soon. Yes, yes I know you’re only 18 months old. But the fact that you are merely 18 months old and are showing strong OCD genes just rattled my nerves a little too strongly. I know its just a phase. But please keep it that way.
Thank you! *hugz*
