I was in the kitchen when I realized QQ was in the bathroom for a very long time. I went in to have a peek and saw her standing on a low stool, scrubbing her hands feverishly with soap, water running.
Mama: Meimei, what are you doing?
QQ: I washing my hands.
Mama: I think your hands are very clean now; you can stop washing already.
QQ: No la... see? This magic pen ink on my hand... koko draw one. Koko is sooooo naughty ya?!?!!
Koko was in near vicinity and heard what QQ said. And quickly exclaimed:
HQ: Hah??? Meimei, what did you say? Who naughty?
Upon hearing what Koko said, QQ's story took a 360% turn...
QQ: No no!! Nobody naughty!! I think I accidentally draw on my hand only la... hee hee hee
Like that also can!!! My goodness!
QQ is so different from HQ. Where HQ will tell the truth or just keep mum when he did something wrong, QQ will:
- say it's not her fault
- effectively use her tears
- or change topic, most of the time saying irrelevant things like "I like you very much, Mama", with a sweet smile and a gentle hug
- and refuse to say sorry
I think with guidance, she'll turn out well as she grows older, but right now, she has proven she is the more mischievous sibling!
