Conversations with Yiu Yiu – Part 2

Most times when we eat out, I'll let Yiu Yiu order the drinks (she'd normally order iced "cham" or iced milo) and I'll share with her (I know I know, she shouldn't be drinking coffee but she's so used to seeing me drink iced "cham" whenever we eat out that she acquired a taste for coffee too). One morning we were having breakfast at the neighbourhood coffeeshop and Yiu Yiu ordered a glass of iced coffee. She didn't even drink a sip so I reprimanded her:
Mummy: Why did you order if you don't want to drink?
Yiu Yiu: No, I order for you one.
Staring at me with her big round eyes for effect, she added, as if to emphasize,
Yiu Yiu: I know you like mah, so I purposely order for you one.

Yiu Yiu has consistently said that she wants to become a doctor when she grows up. During one of our conversations on doctoring, pointing to herself, she said, "I'm a very good doctor. Everyone come to see me no need to pay money one. Because everybody is old and has no money. So after see me, everybody go and take medicine, then can go home already. No need to pay money one. Then go home must eat medicine, then only can get well and no need to see me anymore." I hope she continues to have such generous spirits and a great, big heart.

Yiu Yiu still needs me/hubby to help her clean up after doing her big business.
Yiu Yiu: Mummy, I shee shee and poo poo together. So smelly ah…switch off your nose.
Mummy: How to switch off my nose?
Yiu Yiu: (Acts to hold her breath)
Mummy: Then you cannot breath lor.
Yiu Yiu: When you switch off your nose, cannot breath and cannot smell.

so cute. she is very generous for her age. can't say the same for mine coz she's pretty possessive and will only be nice to those she knows and likes.

but they really know how to answer us back all the time huh?! lol

She's such a thoughtful, generous, sweet little child. You must be proud to be her mum :-)
