My chatty girl

Having a chatty girl is a bane at times, coz it feels like having a mosquito buzzing beside your ears 24/7. But many a times, I'm entertained by her many innocent thoughts.

Giving mei-mei away
I sometimes purposely tease Yiu Yiu that I'd give her mei-mei away, especially when she whines and demands my attention when I'm attending to Yan Yan. She'd normally say no and quieten down, and wait till I'm done with Yan Yan before asking for my attending again. One morning while on the way to send her to the kindy, and Yan Yan to the babysitter:
Yiu Yiu: Mummy, if you want to give mei-mei away to somebody, you give her to Aunty Yoke Ling (the babysitter) and apek (babysitter's husband), OK.
Mummy: Why give mei-mei to Aunty Yoke Ling and apek?
Yiu Yiu: Is Aunty Yoke Ling and apek other people? (i.e., strangers)
Mummy: No, they are not other people.
Yiu Yiu: That's why la, then they will not do bad things to mei-mei. Other people will do bad things to mei-mei.
Mummy: But why do you want to give mei-mei away?
Yiu Yiu: Not me ah, YOU ah! YOU (with emphasis) want to give mei-mei away ah.

Of giving birth
Yiu Yiu: Mummy, when you give birth to mei-mei in the hospital, when the doctor push your tummy, is it painful?
Mummy: Emm…not so painful. Just a little bit.
Yiu Yiu: Eeee yea…like that I don't want to get married and have baby. Or I get married, but I don't want to go to the hospital to give birth. I will give birth at home.

Of falling in love and having girls
Yiu Yiu: Mummy, you fall in love with papa, or papa fall in love with you?
Mummy: We fell in love with each other la.
Yiu Yiu: You fall in love with papa because he is handsome, and papa fall in love with you because you are pretty, right? Then you two get married, then you have me first, then only mei-mei.
Mummy: Yeah.
Yiu Yiu: Why you like to have two girls?
Mummy: Because I like girls.
Yiu Yiu: I know, you like girls because you are a girl…(broke into giggles).

Of falling hair
I've been shedding lots of hair the past 2-3 months, which is typical for someone who is several months postpartum. When Yiu Yiu first saw so much of my hair in the shower drainer, she asked, "Why your hair drop so much, mummy?" to which I replied, "Because I ate too much salty food".

When I was having a shower with her recently, there were strands of hair all over the shower floor. Turning to me with a serious face, she said sternly, "You see, you drop so much hair already. You still want to eat salty food or not?" :-)

Hi Mom, you got real beautiful daughters and I bet they have their mom's good looks.
What I call Mom's Angels.
I once had a friend, 6 daughters and last one a boy.

The mom sure had an easy time, 6 sisters looking, playing with their real boy doll, ha ha.
Have fun, kids grow up fast.
Have a nice day and keep a song in your heart, Lee.
