Rye Li – 1, Mummy – 0 incidents

Lilypie 2nd Birthday Ticker

Some time back, mummy wanted to go to the convenient store at our condo to buy some stuff. So she took me along and I wanted to be carried. She managed to convince me to walk on my own by telling me nicely (more like threatening to me) that if I do not walk on my own I will be sent back to Papa at home. A week after that, same thing again. But this time I got smarter, I took my own sweet time to walk. In fact, I didn’t walk; I just stood still and wouldn’t budge even after mummy telling me numerous times. This went on for a while, and mummy gave up persuading me and finally carried me. ;)

Last week, after my shower, mummy wanted me to wear this hand-me-down Elmo dress which I’ve been refusing to wear, even at the nursery. Mummy received a note from the nursery “Mum, Rye Li does not want to wear this dress” that week and she decided to give it a go with me again since she managed to force me to wear it a few weeks back.

I was protesting “don wan eh-mo (Elmo), don wan” and mummy was saying “ok, if you don’t want to wear this dress, mummy will go over to Jasmine mei-mei’s house (my neighbour who’s 4 months younger than I am) and give her this dress” and I replied “don wan”. And mummy said “if Rye Li don’t want to wear than who’s going to wear? Might as well give to Jasmine mei-mei. If not, then Rye Li wear ok?” and I said “em” and wore the dress that day.

Today, I got smarter when mummy tried the same trick. I again refused to wear it and kept saying “don wan eh-mo (Elmo), don wan” and when mummy said that she will give it to Jasmine mei-mei, I said “em”. Mummy didn’t believe this and even said “ok, I’m going over now and give Jasmine mei-mei this dress ok?” and I nodded yes and said “em”.
