an onion joke, vege-verbal and a "DIE" threat

These are some of the snippets that tickled my funny bone and I want to note down in case I forget them (HQ is 4y 8m old, while QQ is 2y 6m old):

The onion joke
The kids were playing masak-masak where QQ was cooking her imaginary fish with meat, potato, rice and onion. And so:

HQ: Eee… I don’t like onion. It’s spicy!
QQ: Mmm… I like onion.
Mama: Do you know that onions come in many colours? There’s red onion, yellow onion…
HQ: Yellow onion?
Mama: Yes. And some onions are even white.
HQ: Purple onion… Blue onion…
Mama: Hmmm… Maybe there are purple onions. But I’m not so sure about blue onion.
HQ: Got! Got blue onions one! Made in China.
Mama: Made in China? Hahaha!

I thought he just said “Made in China” because he heard us said that phrase sometime ago. Looked like HQ has his own reason:

HQ: Made in China because it’s cold in China. There is snow… so all the onions turn blue! HAHAHAHA
Mama: Hahahaha (QQ was quite clueless but laughed along too)

That cheeky fellow… He must have remembered what the children said about strawberry turning blue in The Sound of Music :-)
....................................................................................................................................................................

QQ speech is overall precise and clear. But these are her word mispronunciations that I find funny :-)

QQ pronounces banana alright on its own, but when she says banana with an “and” word in front, she mispronounces it as “thebana”. However many times she tries, it's still "and thebana"

Treasure is said as “pear-sure

And vegetables as “vege-verbal”. When we mimic her by saying “vege-verbal”, she’ll say “No, not like that. It’s vege-verbal”, trying hard to say it correct but not able to do so. It’s funny to see how she struggles… hahaha.
………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..

We anticipated waiting for papa in the car for quite awhile, so I unbelted the kids. QQ climbed to the driver seat and pretended to drive. When QQ touched the gearbox, HQ yelled:

"Don’t touch that, meimei! If you touch that, our car will fly up the sky! We don’t have parachutes and life jackets! When the car crash, we will all… DIE!!!"

His facial expression, hand gestures, gumball-sized eyes, and the pause before he blurted our “DIE” practically cracked me up.
………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Whenever QQ wants something, she’ll say please real nice. If we tell her we can’t give it to her, like too many cookies, she’ll retort “But I say please already!” She never gives up…
……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

QQ : Papa, please carry me!
Papa : Okieeee… Count one to ten first (trying to buy time/ delay in carrying her)
QQ : One to ten!
Papa: No… count one to ten.
QQ : One to ten! Hee hee hee
Papa : Cheeky girl :-D

HI BJ, love that 'onion turn blue' joke.
Nothing like laughter, a sense of humour to make the Sun come out and wash away our problems if any.
You keep well and have fun, Lee.
