When QQ celebrated her first Christmas with us in year 2007, she was 5 months old. I was looking for a doll as one of her Christmas presents, and when I saw this doll, I fell in love with it right away. I love the message written on the dress :-). We kept the doll away as we thought she was not old enough to appreciate it. When QQ reached 2 years old in May this year, we gave it to her again. She loves it!
What happened was HQ told QQ that her doll needed a nose, so he took a marker pen and gave it a dot for her nose. QQ was very happy with her brother’s help. I told HQ nicely that the nose was most fitting but please do not draw anything on the doll anymore.
When I came home to mum’s house one evening, QQ came running to me, shouting excitedly “See my doll, mama! Koko draw for me!”
!!! What are all those dots for?!?! HQ quickly explained “One dot for the nose not correct, mama. We have two holes (nostrils) on our nose, so I add another hole la!”
When I asked him about the black dot at the doll’s eye, he answered me “That’s a mole! Everyone got mole on the face wat!”
If I buy a Hello Kitty for QQ one day, I can expect it to have a drawn mouth soon enough. No prize for guessing who will draw it on. © Lee Pei Yi. All rights reserved. Originally published for boeyjoey.blogspot.com. All images and text cannot be republished without express written permission.
