Don't want to go home

When I arrived at babysitter's house yesterday to fetch Yiu Yiu home after work, her daughter was having dinner in the living room while her son was snacking on some steamed chestnuts. Yiu Yiu is having a ball of a time getting morsels of food into her tiny mouth from both sources. As the sky was getting dark and I knew it would pour, I wanted to get Yiu Yiu into the car as soon as possible. So I asked my little darling, "Yiu Yiu, do you want to go home?" To our surprise, she shook her head vigorously and continued her project of getting food from the two.

She simply did not show any signs of wanting to leave, until the babysitter packed some chestnuts into a plastic bag, tied it with a raffia string and handed the packet to her. Only when the packet of chestnuts was secure in her hands would she want me to carry her and continue our journey home.

My oh my! What a foodie I'm raising here…
