Yiu Yiu can be rather impatient and whenever she needs something while I'm busy with something else, she'll keep nagging until I do it for her. Sometimes I reprimand her with "Can't you wait? Can't you be a little patient? You can't expect people to do everything that you want immediately, OK?" What am I getting at? Well, this girl always drag her feet when I ask her to brush her teeth, and especially in the morning when we are running late (which is the case most mornings), I get impatient and reprimand her. One day, after waiting for some time in the bathroom for her, I sternly said, "Yiu Yiu, I said come here now". Her reply? "OK, coming…you cannot expect people to immediately do what you want, OK. You have to be patient, OK" ooOO.
I printed a photobook with photos of Yiu Yiu from birth till two years. One day, Yiu Yiu took out the photobook and flipped through the pages. I was at the dining table and didn't know what she was doing until she started asking me questions on photos we took in Hanoi. Then she said:
Yiu Yiu: Mummy, you still haven't done my Facebook for 3 to 4 years old right?
Mummy: Huh, Facebook, what Facebook?
Yiu Yiu: Neh, this Facebook ah (holding the photobook up).
Mummy: Ohhh…it's not Facebook, it's photobook :-)
I’m quite a clumsy person – bumping into things, dropping things that I’m holding, spilling food and drinks, etc. Unfortunately, Yiu Yiu inherited my clumsiness, and Yan Yan is also beginning to demonstrate the same trait, to hubby’s dismay. The other day, I was drinking some yoghurt drink direct from the bottle and accidentally spilled some.
Yiu Yiu: See mummy. You spilled the drink on the floor already. So clumsy ah you.
Mummy: Yeah lor, mummy very clumsy one. You are also clumsy right?
Yiu Yiu: Mummy, I’m still a little girl OK. You are so big already STILL so clumsy.
