Kids are kids. They have their sweet moments and once in awhile, they have their hair-pulling moments too. But again, kids can forgive and forget easily, so we just take it as part and parcel of growing up :-).
I was surprised by both my kids the other day. HQ for biting QQ (gasped!!! not the other way round leh!) and QQ for her respond.
And so… HQ bit QQ. Popo came with the cane, made him apologise, and promise not to do that again. HQ apologized and sayang-ed his meimei back. QQ stopped crying and all was well again.
Later when Gong gong came home, QQ, being extra manja (Malay: pampered) with her Gong gong (in fact, she manjas with everyone) told her Gong gong the earlier incident (telltale!):
QQ: Gong gong, koko bite me.
Gong gong: What?
Gong gong went to the storeroom and came out with a pair of pliers. Gong gong approached HQ, pliers hiding behind his back.
Gong gong: HQ, did you bite meimei?
HQ : *nodded* But popo scold me already and I say sorry to meimei.
Gong gong revealed the pliers and said: If you bite meimei again, I am going to pluck your teeth with these pliers.
HQ stared at Gong gong with huge eyes *gulped*
She gave a LOUD bawl, held on to Gong gong’s hand and cried:
QQ: NO, Gong gong!!! If you pluck koko’s teeth, how koko going to eat food?!? How koko going to eat porridge?!? WAAAAAAHHHHH!!!
HAHAHAHA! When I heard this from mum, I LOL!
So! Being a little 2.5 year old cheeky girl who snatches and screams, QQ has a soft spot for her koko too! :-D
