Aditi and Arjun were more than a handful to manage. Ayesha loved her twin babies but sometimes they drove her crazy. Today, they wanted to try the huge slide that was a new addition to their neighbourhood park. As always, Ayesha fell for their puppy dog eyes and the three set off to the park.
“Mom, will you come too?”, asked a little scared Arjun.
“Don’t worry, Arjun. I’ll be with you.”, Aditi said as she offered her hand to her hand.
Ayesha who was scared of slides herself felt a bit relieved at that.
But when she noticed that most parents were accompanying their children, she decided to overcome her fear. But once they reached the top, she got cold feet.
“Mom, come on. It’s your turn.”, wailed an excited Aditi.
“Mom, just go!”
The twins gave her a mighty push and off she went!
P.S: And so all thanks to her twins, Ayesha nearly overcame her fears but thanks to their push, she ended up being even more scared of slides! 😀 This is just a tricky way of exceeding the word limit as the host herself would agree. I hope you will forgive me for this!
