managing QQ, HQ's style (part II)

A sequel from Part 1.

We were getting ready for bed last night, and the kids were playing on their own before drifting to sleep. QQ was being cheeky and tried to be funny when she took off her pants and started jumping, running and bouncing on our beds (adjacent to each other). She was not wearing anything waist down (I only put disposible nappy on her after she falls asleep). She wriggled off when I tried to wear the pants back for her and she wouldn't put it back on herself.

HQ took matters in his hands :-).

HQ : Meimei, let's play a game, want or not? I be the King. Everyone must listen to the King one oh...

QQ : *stopped jumping and listen to what koko had to say*

HQ : Cannot run around without wearing pants ah... later, the spider bite your buttock how? (we have been telling them spider bites smelly buttock *guilty*)

HQ : *holding up two pants* Meimei, you want to wear princess pants, or queen pants?

QQ : Queen pants! :-D

HQ : Ok, come here... lie down. I wear for you. *fiddled with the pants and fitted one leg in for QQ* Stand up.

QQ stood up, and with only one leg in the pants, HQ couldn't pull it up.

HQ : Aiyah... lie down again. *fiddle, fiddle, give up* Meimei, you wear by yourself la!

QQ obediently wore the pants by herself.

Hubby brought the kids swimming, and once we're on board in the car, QQ asked for the milo packet drink. Must be really hungry after the excercise. I was making milk for her then, so I told her to drink her milk first before taking Milo. Did she listen? No, she kept demanding for her Milo.

So HQ chipped in to help :-)

HQ : Meimei, look here *pointing the words on the Milo packet drink* Here say ah... must drink milk first, then only you can drink Milo.

QQ obediently took her milk quickly. Once finished, she asked for the Milo and ignore my request to gargle her mouth with water first.

HQ: Meimei *pointing the words on the Milo packet drink again* Here also say, after drinking milk, must drink water before you can drink Milo.

QQ again obediently listened and drank her water. HQ then handed her her Milo.
..............................................................................................................................................................

For the life of me, I could not understand. We pleaded, coaxed, bribed, threaten, and did whatever ways to make QQ listen to us. But we often met defeat. On the other hand, HQ will just say a few words, and QQ will be as obedient as a little kitten... purring and doing anything to please her big brother, without protest :-)

I wonder why is that?

So sweet of the sissy...*giggle*
Do they quarrel sometimes? How do they make up?

Children are funny in their sibling relationship ya...a minute they are in a war, a minute later they are in peace....giggling to each other and hugging too...hehehehe

BoeyJoey said...

UmmiRosma: Oh, they do quarrel... snatching things, being unreasonably possessive over certain things that clearly belongs to him/ her *sigh*

Sometimes they shake hands, kiss and hug each other to make up (willingly or grudgingly). Sometimes they just forget about everything and play with each other like normal :-)

Broccoli Ginger: Yes, HQ is our baby-sitter. Sometimes, he'll tell us to go do our stuffs and he'll look after meimei :-).

Salute to HQ. He's so mature and a good helper too. He reminds me of my little Audrey who also help to stop Shannen from crying.

Perhaps, kor kor is her only playmate. Maybe she listens to kor kor in order not to offend him so that kor kor would play with her.

Mummy Gwen said...

Yeah..kids are like that huh..haha...HQ is a good kor kor.

A Mom's Diary said...

QQ listens to kor-kor coz she adores him, and doesn't want him to be unhappy :-)
